As the weather turns warmer, building managers look to the exteriors of their buildings for signs of damage. One of the primary concerns of good building management should be the care and maintenance of all roof structures, as damaged or deteriorating roofs can have serious impact on both the interiors and exteriors of your commercial properties.
However, before implementing a roof maintenance program, it is wise to first have the roofs of all of your commercial properties evaluated by a professional.
A professional roof consultant will provide you with a comprehensive roof survey report that includes the following:
Most building managers may not have the expertise needed to create this type of comprehensive roof survey. While some roofing contractors may offer this service, it can present a potential conflict of interest. If your roof survey is performed by an independent professional roof consultant, you avoid potential conflicts and are assured of a complete and accurate assessment.
The professional roof consultant should be a member of RCI (formally known as the Roof Consulting Institute) and have the credentials required to conduct a professional survey. The survey should be done by a Registered Roof Consultant (RRC) or at least be reviewed by a RRC and signed/stamped by the RRC to validate the survey’s findings.
Once your survey report is in hand, building management should be able to more effectively organize and manage your roof asset.
