Whether you own a home or building, you should be mindful of who you hire to take care of your roof. Regular roof inspections from an experienced contractor are essential in keeping your roof in good shape and making it last longer. With an efficient roofing system, you can ensure the safety and comfort of your building’s occupants.
Here are things property managers should ask before hiring a roofing contractor.
Are You Capable of Working on Larger Properties?
Usually, the scale of commercial properties, such as multi-family rehabs and condominiums, are more than what many small roofing companies can take. As a result, the project takes longer to complete, and less experienced workers are used for the project. Keep in mind that longer roofing jobs can cause more hassle to occupants and more delays due to bad weather.
What Warranty Do You Offer on Labor and Materials?
Condominiums and apartment complexes usually have longer warranty coverage since they have long-term owners. Problems may start to manifest years after the installation, so you want to choose a company that will remain in business to honor the warranty. As much as possible, hire a local company that has been in the area for a long time. Avoid part-timers or out-of-state contractors, who don’t even have a permanent business address and number.
What Other Services Can You Provide if Repairs or Maintenance Are Necessary?
Your roof can experience issues due to harsh weather conditions and accidents, and when it’s reaching the end of its lifespan. Neglecting your roof and delaying repairs can result in major issues that are expensive to address. Experts recommend having your roof inspected at least once a year and after a severe storm.
