What Does Haag Certification Tell You About Me?
It’s common sense: building materials don’t last forever. Throughout a product’s life cycle, its ability to keep you dry and insulated
can be affected in a variety of ways. The natural process of weathering and aging can be accelerated by a number of factors:
- > problems during manufacturing
- > design issues or errors during installation
- > the damaging effects of hail and wind or other non-natural (mechanical) forces
While these issues are very different in origin, on the surface they can look quite similar. Determining the true cause of an issue with
confidence requires advanced knowledge and thorough investigation techniques.
This is why Haag Certification is so valuable. Haag Certified Inspectors are not beginners in the field. They are adjusters, estimators,
home inspectors, roofing contractors, consultants, and other industry pros who have fine-tuned their inspection skills to find damage
where it exists.
- > Not only must students meet prerequisites to attend, but they receive three days of direct and intensive training from seasoned
Haag Engineers. (Haag’s course developers and teachers draw on Haag’s long history as a leader in the field of forensic engineering.
Course instructors have over 300 years of combined field experience and have authored numerous industry-leading reports and researched
studies on damage assessment.)
- > To earn their designation as Haag Certified Inspectors, students must prove an in-depth understanding of advanced damage assessment
techniques and philosophies by passing a comprehensive final exam.
- > Students maintain active status as Certified Inspectors by requalifying through testing on an annual basis.
Simply put: Haag Certified Inspectors are trusted and tested professionals who possess the resources to assess damage with confidence.
