Building Envelope

Higgins & Associates engineers, architects and consultants have many years’ experience in the evaluation of all elements of the building envelope including windows, doors, siding and waterproofing systems. We are experts in the evaluation of all types of roofing systems including:

  • Asphalt shingles
  • Metal roofing
  • Slate
  • Clay and concrete tiles
  • Built-up roofing systems
  • Monolithic systems and single-ply membranes such as TPO, EPDM and rubber roofing

Our engineers and architects support our insurance clients with appraisal services and determination of the cause and extent of damage to roofs and the other building envelope systems. We are available to assist with first-party claims and act as appraisers or umpires as required by policy provisions and insurance legislation.
