The Portland Chapter of RCI is an affiliated chapter of RCI, Incorporated, which is an international association of professional consultants, architects, and engineers who specialize in the specification and design of roofing, waterproofing and building envelope systems.

Since 1983 RCI members have offered unbiased design, repair planning, quality observance, legal testimony, and general roof management services. In March of 2006, RCI (formerly Roof Consultants Institute) expanded its mission and service scope to include waterproofing and the building envelope. This action reflects the understanding that roofing issues often influence the entire building envelope. It was discovered that in increasing frequency, RCI members are called upon to address building-wide concerns from below-grade to rooftop.

The Registered Roof Observer (RRO), Registered Roof Consultant (RRC), Registered Waterproofing Consultant (RWC), Registered Exterior Wall Observer (REWO), Registered Exterior Wall Consultant (REWC) and Registered Building Envelope Consultant (RBEC) programs distinguish professionals with the proven standards of education, experience and ethics.


The mission of RCI is to ensure the credibility of the roofing, waterproofing, and building envelope consulting professions.
