ViewTech’s Video Borescopes Utilized for Inspecting Balconies and Elevated Structures

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- In response to the 2015 deck collapse in Berkeley which caused six fatalities, California legislation signed into law SB 721 and SB 326 requiring periodic inspections of exterior elevated elements (EEE) that structurally rely on wood or wood-based materials, says ViewTech Borescopes.

California Senate Bill 721 relates to apartment complexes with more than three units, while senate bill 326 pertains to condominiums or multi-family housing controlled by residential homeowners' associations (HOAs).

Any entry, decks, porches, stairways, walkways, and other entry structure that are elevated more than six feet above ground level must be checked for cracks, rotting, insect damage, rusted fasteners or connectors, and mold or mildew exposure.

There are many methods, techniques, and types of equipment that can be utilized during these necessary evaluations of EEE, including visual inspection, infrared thermography, destructive testing, and video borescopes. With initial safety investigations needing to be completed by January 1, 2025, ViewTech Borescopes has a multitude of clients that own VJ-3 Far Focus video borescopes specifically for these inspections.

When completing inspections, licensed structural engineers, architects, contractors, or certified building inspectors drill a series of holes through materials and use a ViewTech VJ-3 video borescope to take photos and videos to assist with necessary reports, including photographs of any damage found. ViewTech Borescopes no-cost, no-demo program is available to trial by professionals completing SB 721 or SB 326 inspections.

About ViewTech Borescopes

ViewTech Borescopes, founded as RF System Lab in 2008, is North America's #1 seller of video borescopes. Their first product, the VJ borescope, set a new standard for portability, ergonomics and ease-of-use, with its industry-first mechanical, joystick-controlled articulation.

School Construction Projects Slowed by Pandemic, Maas Companies Inc., Sees Hope Supply Chain Problems Will Ease Up

IRVINE, Calif. -- Construction project timeline delays, increased material costs, labor shortages, and supply chain lags stemming from the pandemic have reportedly affected 70% of construction projects across the nation (*see citation), however Maas Companies, advisors in program and construction management for the academic community, believe the tide is close to changing.

Delivery delays are starting to ease due to government intervention. California Governor Newsom and the Department of General Services identified six state sites to store up to 20,000 shipping containers in an effort to alleviate port congestion. This lack of storage space was a primary driver of the bottlenecks at state ports. (**)

"Delays plus the increased cost of materials alone has had enormous impact," says Penny McGrew, Program Manager with Maas Companies which has overseen the construction of 415 projects for districts, educational institutions, and public agencies over the past 15 years. The firm currently has 86 active projects underway. "Steel is up 250 to 300%, lumber up 400%, and commercial plumbing supplies have escalated to 175% over the pre-pandemic price," she adds. (***)

Malcolm Wilson, CEO of GXO, a global logistics firm is optimistic of a supply chain turn around. Wilson said GXO, which has more than 860 warehouses around the world, is now seeing a lot of the backlogged cargo channeling into the firm's warehouses. The process will take time and industry officials don't expect the backlog to fully clear until 2023. (****)

"We are seeing school districts directly procuring long lead items such as HVAC units, which face 8-to-10-month backlogs, and electrical components, rather than wait for a contractor to order them," observes McGrew. "This puts the items on site so that when a contractor is approved, the project is ready to go," she adds.

Building a school in California is a complex matter under the best of circumstances. "Timelines are contingent on many variables, from the quality of the land for the building site to the complexity of the architecture, weather, and other factors," says Maas President Lori Maas O'Keefe. Such projects are also directed by the California Code of Regulations, Title V, which mandates the guidelines for state funded school facilities construction. Many schools and community colleges also draw funding from public bond measures, adding another layer of accountability and guidelines.

Because education facilities in California have been regarded as essential, work on school projects was allowed to continue during sporadic "lockdowns" related to the pandemic, although the mission to maintain worker safety and securing the required personal protective equipment had proven challenging in the days of Covid-19. Despite the continuance of work schedules, labor shortages and material shortages have slowed the process.

For example, supply problems put the skids on the reopening of Riverside Elementary School and the Performing Arts building at Carlsbad High School, both in Carlsbad, California, where project delays also impacted Desert Willow Elementary School and Ocotillo Elementary School, among others. (*****)

Despite the pandemic's punch, Maas O'Keefe remains optimistic. "Everyone at the table shares the same goal: giving students the best school facility possible. That alone helps despite global issues beyond our control," she says.

HAWTHORNE, N.J. -- The Sales4Roofers team continues to push boundaries in the global roofing industry by providing solutions that help roofers engage their customers - existing and potentials, better, while also ensuring homeowners have a seamless experience. In a related development, Sales4Roofers has continued to enhance the experience of homeowners through their Covid Free Roofing Estimate Online solution, enabling them to get the cost of services and visualize what the roof will look like after completion, without leaving the comfort of their homes.

"Covid had put an increased demand for our service, Homeowners love an online estimate appointment!" said Sean Mulkean, Homeowner Appointment Manager at Sales4Roofers. "We expect the number of online estimates we provide to rise close to 1500 in 2022."

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are over 139 million housing units in the U.S. as of 2019, revealing that there are a lot of homes that potentially need a roof (*note: see link to citation below). The figures indicate an increasing demand for roofing solutions amidst the emergence of thousands of service providers from different parts of the world. Despite the amazing figures from the market, consumers still struggle to access quality solutions due to either exorbitantly-priced services or unreliable roofing companies, with the Covid pandemic further worsening the situation. However, Sales4Roofers aims to change this narrative by helping homeowners get accurate estimates of roofing services to enable them to effectively prepare and make informed decisions.

The free roofing estimate online allows homeowners to get quotes in less than 30 minutes through a hassle-free appointment with roofing specialists from the Sales4Roofers team. The service comes with an enhanced Roof Simulator to allow customer see what the house looks like after completing the project.

Sean adds, "This is our biggest advantage for Homeowners, they love to pick and choose colors and instantly see what the roof looks like!"

Other benefits of the solution include a detailed explanation of the installation process, warranties, and price guarantees, simulation of the look of the roof with the chosen shingles, measurements done with state-of-the-art aerial measurement tool, and no sales pressure as customers are not required to pay any money at the appointment. Homeowners also get a complete estimate presentation in PDF for reference.

The launch of the solution is particularly useful, considering the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on the roofing industry, especially in getting estimates from roofers, due to restrictions and adherence to safety protocols.
