3 Questions to Answer When Creating a Roof Management Plan
A sound roof management strategy is imperative to help you get the most out of your commercial roofing system’s efficiency and longevity. A reputable contractor who provides roof repair and replacement services can help you devise a plan that meets your particular needs, objectives and budget. As you work together with the pros, be sure you are prepared to answer the following questions:
1. What’s your approach to roof maintenance? Do you wait for leaks to occur on your roof before calling for repairs? Or do you have it inspected once or twice as a precaution? Of course, the latter is more ideal if you have the time or can assign it to your personnel. To maximize your roof’s capabilities, consider investing in a maintenance service agreement. It is a pre-booked appointment with your roofing contractor, scheduled at certain times of the year. The pros, meanwhile, can tweak the scheduled maintenance depending on the lifespan of your commercial roofing system and your existing budget.
2. What’s your budget? Can you afford a high-quality roofing system that has lower lifecycle costs and doesn’t require extensive maintenance? Roofing contractors need to know if you can afford a superior roofing system or if your business is operating on a tight budget. In the case of the latter, expect them to help you come up with strategies that meet your financial standing without having to disregard efficiency and performance.
3. Can you provide the maintenance records of your roofing system? Your roofer will need to check the maintenance records of your commercial roof to determine how often it needs to be maintained and if any components need to be replaced. To maintain track of your roof's maintenance history, you should keep a roofing file, either on paper or through the cloud. Pieces of information to add to your file including the material manufacturers, warranty information, records and photos of each scheduled maintenance, and design documents, to name a few.
