We provide five consulting rate categories for our customers’ needs.   E-mail consulting is by far the quickest and easiest for us to do.  Then there is consulting through the mail which is a bit slower.  We also offer off-site technical support for custom slate roof projects.  We can provide on-site visits for full roof evaluations of existing roof conditions and/or installation. With this, we offer expert slate and copper roofing including witness testimony. In addition to ladder inspection, we have available a 62 foot vertical reach one man basket crane lift. This is recommended for tower inspection and those hard to reach building details.  We provide this service only in the state of Vermont. For any other state, a local equipment company will be contracted for this type of consulting.
Email consultations are only: $300.00.  

Mail consultations are: $350.00. 

Technical support: varies in costs depending on a number of factors, but you can expect to pay around $1,000.00.

Site visits: base rate $4,000.00 plus expenses.

Expert Witness rate: The current rate for expert witness testimony, depositions, or any consulting work outside northern Vermont by Liam Tower is $250.00/hr plus expenses. Office consulting rates (rendered from our office in western Pennsylvania) are $125.00/hr plus expenses. "Lost time" rates (i.e. travel time etc.,) are $75.00/hr from 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. on work days while traveling, waiting for meetings, or otherwise losing work time on behalf of the client.
