An effective commercial roof management system is a collaborative work between a roofing contractor and the building’s manager. When you’re laying out a plan to keep your commercial roof in good shape, it pays to keep communication lines open between you and your contractor.
The more information you provide to your roofers, the better they can be at helping you make sure your roofing system is in optimal condition. Our experts at Jeff Woods Construction recommend starting your dialogue with your roofing contractor with the following talking points.
Who Are the Users?
Your commercial property should be all about its tenants. The maintenance plan your roofing company will draw up can change depending on whether you have millions of dollars worth of equipment inside your building or if you have a mostly empty warehouse space. Strategies can also be adjusted based on the schedules of your tenants so that it disrupts as little of their daily operations as possible.
Do You Know the History of Your Roof?
If you can provide information to your roofer about when your roof was installed, what materials were used and how often it’s received maintenance visits in the past, then you have a solid foundation upon which to build a good management strategy.
What About Roof Maintenance?
For some managers, roof repair is a matter of prevention. For others, it’s a matter of circumstance. Your attitude towards roofing maintenance plays a big role in how well you’ll follow whatever roof management strategy you and your roofer will establish. While both types of outlook are acceptable and workable, it’s important to understand that they will have very different results.
