Jul 28, 2023

In this episode:

In this candid and relatable discussion, Curtis Lawson, Toner Kersting and special guest, Robert Coreale, explore the critical topic of building performance failures and roofing failures. They get into the nitty gritty and the importance of using appropriate products and following correct procedures to prevent issues and failures from arising.

Robert Coreale, Owner & President of Tile Roofs of Texas, shares his expert insights and unique perspective through real-world experiences from the last 30 years of running his own business, and collaborations with Toner on building forensic projects. Roofing often lacks oversight compared to other parts of a building, making accountability and documentation through pictures a key aspect of ensuring quality work. They drive into the importance of the craftsmanship, including having in-house skilled and knowledgeable professionals, to ensure top-notch installations. Proper planning, a strong team, effective communication, and proper execution form the foundation for project success, illustrated by our host through our house diagram and motto that we mention in every episode.

By using a holistic approach to building design, homes are treated and perceived as systems, not just a collection of products and this conversation leans towards the importance of designing homes that work harmoniously with their environment and client needs, as well as the value of building strong relationships in the industry and treating homes as integrated systems.

Tune in to gain valuable insights on preventing building performance and roofing failures while learning from experienced professionals.
