Roofing tips for commercial property managers
Commercial building managers and owners sometimes forget to take good care of the roof of the building. Managing the people who live or work in your building is easy, for the most part – every building has an unruly tenant or troublesome employees, but that’s not what this blog is about. This blog is to remind you that you are also responsible for taking care of the building itself, and that includes the roof.
If you ask us, we think that taking good care of your roof should be your number one priority. Think of how hard it would be to run a business, a hotel, a hospital, an apartment building, or even a church if you didn’t have a solid roof over everyone’s head. All of a sudden that elusive corner office on the top floor doesn’t sound so appealing anymore. We may be heading into spring here in Colorado, but that doesn’t mean we don’t see our share of spring showers. And, although we have a state filled with nature lovers, most of us appreciate a good solid roof over our heads at the end of the day.
Proactive building and roofing maintenance save money
So, while it’s important to take care of the needs of your tenants, it is also important to take care of the building. For one, you need your building to be secure and protect the people and things that are housed inside. And second, should you want to sell you building, the money you spend on maintaining, repairing, or replacing your roof will have a great return on investment.
Proper roof care and maintenance has also proven to extend the life of your roof, sometimes even doubling its lifespan. The best preventative efforts to protect and maintain your roof begin with a professional inspection of your entire roofing system, from the materials, used, to the insulation, ventilation, gutters, and flashing system. Your roof is a complicated system, and all parts need to be working to protect the building come rain or shine, hail or floods, tornadoes or even tiny little woodpeckers.
