As a facility manager, it is important that you not only keep an eye on a roofing project, but also ensure the safety of everyone inside the building, including employees and occupants. Here are tips to ensure the success of managing a roof repair or replacement.
Come Up With a Complete Project Scope
Proper and well-communicated project scopes should cover all bases. In coming up with it, you get to know all of the components involved in the roofing project. It also allows your contractor to devise accurate pricing estimates. Forgetting even just one item can impact your project and affect the roofing system’s performance or warranty coverage.
Follow the Local Building Codes
Make sure you and your contractor follow the local building codes when tackling a roof repair or replacement. Also, see to it that the project follows code requirements along with manufacturer installation guidelines. Settle any discrepancies between these regulations and manufacturer recommendations before the project begins.
Agree on Ensuring Clean Workspaces
As the one in charge of the commercial property, it is your responsibility to keep the premises clean even when there are roofers doing work. Before the project starts, talk to your contractor about it. By keeping the jobsite free of any mess, everyone involved can deliver a safe work environment and encourage a positive experience with your employees or building tenants.
Consider the Weather
The weather can make or break your roofing project’s timeline. Disregarding this important aspect can lead to delays, unsafe work conditions and even unnecessary water damage inside your building. Be sure both you and your contractor are on the same page when it comes to potential adjustment of start times and workdays based on the outdoor temperatures and other weather conditions.
