Overseeing a roofing project whether it is a simple repair job or a complete replacement, is something you’ll be doing at some point. Exterior Building Solutions, one of the top roofing contractors in the area, shares some tips on how to successfully manage it.
Be Mindful of the Project’s Scope
Begin with a proper, well-communicated project scope. Having a detailed plan allows you to fully understand all of the roofing project’s components. It also enables your chosen contractor to establish an accurate quote or estimate of the project’s cost. Depending on the complexity of the roofing project, you may need to hold regular meetings with the pros so everything is on track from start to finish.
Follow Building Codes
If you are tackling a residential or commercial roof installation, make sure that the entire structure adheres to current building codes. Before the project begins, see to it that the contractor you hire is up to date with these requirements. The pros must also be capable of coordinating codes with the manufacturer installation guidelines and that any discrepancies between the two should be resolved before starting the roof replacement.
Incorporate New Technologies
Today’s roofing industry has taken advantage of newer technologies. More and more roofing contractors, in fact, are using remote-controlled drones to perform aerial roof inspections and measurements. Captured video footage and images from these can be used for later reference. Also, show-and-tell applications are also being utilized by roofing manufacturers. These allow you to design the look of your new roof by changing the surface colors of pre-selected roof structures on the interface.
Perform a Quality Check After the Project
Once the pros are done with your roofing project, make sure you have the time and opportunity to give the finished product a thorough look. Talk to your contractor and see to it that they correct any problems you might find as soon as possible. Before signing off on the job and announcing its completion, make sure they perform post-installation cleanup on your roof and around your home.
