The Colorado climate can be unpredictable. All it takes is one freak storm to have homeowners scrambling for a roof leak fix. In residential buildings, this is handled simply enough. However, things become much more complicated when it comes to commercial properties. Multi-unit buildings often have a lot at stake and handling a roofing system that covers more than one property might be a little out of a small roofer’s league.
As a property manager for a commercial building, it pays to be prepared to handle any roofing emergency. But how do you know if a roofer is well-equipped to provide service to multi-unit facilities? Our experts at New Line Roofing recommends asking them these questions first.
Can You Scale Your Services?
Large commercial roofing systems will have higher and bigger demands than residential family homes. Smaller companies might not have enough resources or manpower to meet these demands. It’s important to lay all the details regarding size and requirements out with your roofer right at the beginning and talk to them whether they are capable of handling the job.
What Is Your Typical Labor Warranty Coverage
Labor warranties are different from material coverage so it’s important to clarify the details of your warranty right away. Condominiums and apartment complexes will often have long-term ownership so it’s important to have coverage that’s equally suited for the long-term.
Do You Have Maintenance Programs?
While the roof repair and maintenance demands of a commercial property might differ from residential homes, they still require regular inspections to keep them in good shape. Roofing companies that provide routine maintenance, therefore, should be at the top of your priority list. This will go a long way into ensuring the longevity of your roof.
