Level 2 inspection includes the same visual details as a level 1, but expands to more detailed inspection aspects, like:
- Proper termination at grade on roof areas
- Presence of proper weep screed and properly integrated flashing
- Presence of proper kickout flashing
- Window and door flashing

- Presence of proper control joints and expansion joints
We also provide detailed elevation photos with an overlay of problems found with reference points on the building. Our inspectors also collect moisture readings at the locations for correct results, avoiding false positives.
