A commercial roof is built to last, but nothing lasts forever. From weather destruction to gradual aging, your location will eventually see a roof replacement in its lifetime.
Any work on your rooftop will be no small feat. Therefore, preparation is key for a successful build. Here are some of our preparation tips that should help make your transition into a new roof a smooth venture.
Create a Plan
No commercial roof replacement should begin without a solid plan of action. Creating a plan for your replacement can help your business reduce the risk of the project taking way too long and biting a huge chunk out of a budget.
During the planning stage your goals should be:
- Defining the specifics of your roof replacement (materials, square footage, coating needs, etc.)
- Creating a timetable that specifies a start and end date
Set a Budget That Your Business Can Afford
Financing your roof replacement can be a job in itself, as well as one of the most important aspects of a project. A commercial roof’s installation cost will depend on the property size and the availability of your professional contractor.
Take some time to analyze the options available to you and meet with your board of directors to come up with an idea of what you can actually afford. Also, when creating your budget, keep in mind that not everything will go as planned. Always set aside a percentage of funds that will help cover delays, change orders, or any other unforeseen costs.
Prepare the Area for Construction
Residential roofing projects require a cleanup prior to construction, and so will your commercial job. It’s important to move and stow away any obstacles or clutter that could interfere with the success or safety of the roofing job.
A tight schedule is necessary to stay on course, so this extra step to keep the work area clear will help to keep your roof construction on its projected timeline.
Keep Your Staff Informed and Updated
Finally, keeping your staff updated on the project is important. Not only will they be excited for a new roof, but they will also need to know areas to avoid.
Provide the construction area with warning signs that will complement the safety measures that your roofers are already taking. Great signage and communication keep your employees and roofers safe from high-risk problems.
