REI Engineers, Inc. was established in Raleigh, NC in 1996 as Roof Engineering, Inc. Originally, our focus was primarily concentrated on the science of commercial roofing. In the process of our work, we increasingly encountered building failures resulting from components other than roofing. Over time, our investigations allowed us to evaluate products and construction techniques and determine what worked and what didn’t. As a result of this experience, we have become knowledgeable in all aspects of the building envelope. This allows us to provide complete exterior building envelope services in house without the need for outside services. Because REI is licensed as an Engineering firm, we are able to provide design services (including necessary calculations and engineering judgment) that may not be provided in house by unlicensed consultants.
In 2008, REI was converted to a 100% employee owned firm through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).
Our highly trained team consists of Professional Engineers and RCI, Inc. Registered Professionals including Registered Building Envelope Consultants (RBEC), Registered Waterproofing Consultants (RWC), Registered Roof Consultants (RRC), Registered Roof Observers (RRO), and Registered Exterior Wall Consultants (REWC). Since our inception we have grown to more than 50 full time professionals with 5 offices throughout the southeastern United States. From small renovations and additions to headline-making construction, our team has the experience, technology and skills to tackle the most challenging building envelope projects.
The services provided by our ever increasing team of professionals include:
