It is your obligation as a homeowner or business owner to supervise roof repair or replacement projects that affect the safety, functionality and aesthetics of your property. This applies to your roof as well.
You’ll want your roofing project to be a success — with no do-overs or blunders — whether it’s a modest roof repair or a comprehensive roof replacement. Here are tips to ensure the success of managing a roof repair or replacement.
- Understand the Scope of the Project
The scope of the project explains all that your roofing project must accomplish. Knowing and comprehending the scope of your project will help you make educated decisions and keep it on track from the planning stages to the conclusion.
- Review Building Codes
Roof repair and replacement, as well as all other types of construction and restoration work, should adhere to applicable building codes. Buildings that are determined to be non-compliant may face fines and may have to be demolished and rebuilt, potentially doubling project costs.
One of the reasons you should only use a licensed and bonded roofing contractor is that you can rest assured that your roof will meet all building codes. This role includes ensuring that old and out-of-date roofs are up to code.
- Think About the Weather
Weather can make or break a roofing project’s timeline. Ignoring this crucial element could lead to delays, hazardous working conditions, and even preventable water damage inside your building. Make sure you and your roof and siding contractor are both on the same page.
- Stay Current With the Latest Technologies
Because it is safer and saves time, virtual meetings have become the preferred method of consultation for most contractors. They also utilize cameras attached to remote-controlled drones to examine the condition of the roof, and augmented reality technology allows roofers to virtually try on alternative roofs in real-time, from any angle.
- Always Check the Roof After It’s Finished
After their work is completed, a good roofer should do a full quality inspection. Make it a point to inspect everything yourself. Having a second pair of eyes is usually beneficial. You’ll also be signing off on it, so make sure everything in the scope of your roof replacement project is completed appropriately.
