Churches and schools will always be confronted with unique challenges while undergoing a commercial roof replacement. This is due to size, cost and more. Is it time to consider a roof replacement for your commercial building? Here’s what you should know…
Timing is Tough
It’s difficult to say exactly when a commercial roof will need to be replaced. However, consistent maintenance will make it easier to remain aware of the condition your roof is in, making it easier to plan before it’s too late. Working with a commercial roofing company is a great way to gauge how many years your roof has left.
Choose the Right Time of Year
A large-scale commercial roof replacement will require a bit more time than a small residential job. While it is possible for roof replacement to happen any time of year, it is best to perform these sort of projects in warmer months.
Choose a Slow Time
People walking in and out of your building can present a danger during the roof replacement. If you can, try to schedule your roof replacement during a week when students, the congregation or the public are out of the building. It’s also a good idea to create a schedule for the day the project begins to the date of completion – with a few extra days built in to account for unexpected situations.
Ask to be Informed of Damage
During a commercial roofing project, it is possible for gutters and siding to be slightly damaged. A great roofing company will do their best to avoid these instances, but sometimes they’re unavoidable. Make sure you’re working with a company that is transparent about these things!
Choosing the Right Roofing Company
A large commercial project will have a sizable upfront cost. Only a highly reputable and experienced roofing company should be allowed to take on projects like these. It’s also important to note that some companies will ask for payment for materials before the work is done. This is especially true on larger commercial projects. In this event, payment should only be made once the material has been delivered to the job site.
