Residential roof installation projects are fairly straightforward: you find a reputable contractor, set up a schedule, start the work and, a day or two later, your new roofing system is up and ready. For commercial properties and their managers, getting roof work involves a lot more steps with much less margin for errors. The whole project will require careful organizing, which, if you’ve ever handled any construction or remodeling before, might not always go the way you planned.
Let our commercial roofing experts at Blue Sky Roofing give you a few important pointers to keep in mind to ensure your roof installation or replacement is finished successfully (or as close to success as possible).
The planning stage of a commercial roof replacement project should always be well-coordinated between you, as the facility owner or manager, and your contracting company. Discuss the scope of the entire project in as much detail as you can and carefully lay out all the essentials beforehand. Don’t hesitate to take as much time as you need during this time because spotting problems and fixing them now is better than having to deal with it later.
The Right Tools
Visualizing what your new roof will look like is easier now thanks to technology. Many roofing manufacturers offer applications that allow you to virtually explore the many options for color, patterns, pitch and construction, as well as virtually see the final product in action. Scoping out a project site is also made easier with roofing companies’ use of drones for a detailed aerial inspection.
Keeping the roof in good shape is just as important as getting it installed. Many roofing companies offer maintenance agreements that offers you a convenient way to keep track of your roofing’s regular maintenance schedule.
