One of the responsibilities of property managers is dealing with the roof upkeep. The roof is not the exclusive responsibility of people who live on the last floor of a HOA; it is the responsibility of all people who live in the building, and managers are the ones who must organize the roof replacement process.
Roof replacements are costly projects, but they are necessary when repairs are not feasible anymore (the roof is either too old, or too deteriorated). When an apartment manager decides that a roof replacement is the best option, they must follow a few important steps.
Choosing a roofer
Finding a commercial roofing company is not complicated at all, but the thing that matters most is making a selection and choosing the best roofer. You need a licensed, certified and insured company, with years of experience extended in also working with HOAs.
It is very important to identify a reputable contractor, for the safety and comfort of the building`s residents and the property itself.
Choosing the materials
Once you hired a roofer, you can start discussing the details about the project. The specialists will offer consultancy and help you pick the materials.
Communicate with the residents in the building
People must be kept up to date and know about the inconveniences they might experience during the roof replacement.
Creating a maintenance plan
The new roof must be inspected and maintained regularly, otherwise you may not be able to benefit from the warranty, when you need it most. Maintenance also increases the lifespan of a roof.
