So you already know the importance and relevance of doing timely periodical checkup and maintenance of your property, let us now examine the actual process or steps that are involved in the maintenance plan which will help you determine whether the contracted personnel you are hiring are capable enough and doing exactly what you are looking for them to do.
So what are The Secret Behind Proper Commercial Roof Maintenance? Well, one of the most important things you could do is be ready! Do a quick little survey/inspection yourself before bringing anyone in. Don’t just rush in to bringing fixit Joe! Take your time, make sure you cover the entire surface area of the roof to ensure you know all the problem areas. This would help you cross check whatever the contracted personnel come up with after their initial inspection. You could challenge their findings, at to their knowledge or simply be vigilant in making sure they don’t simply skip a certain problem area just because it would cost more time and effort and may not be so feasible in their proposal.
To ensure you do not leave any areas unchecked, make sure the following are inspected:
- Drains and Gutters
- Penetrations and Rooftop unites
- Entire Surface area
- Roof edges, expansions and terminations and also control joints
It’s always best to plan and make a check-list of all the tasks that you wish to do in your inspection and maintenance plan. Remember that when you are hiring help, do not look for the cheapest options, after all this is about safety! You simply cannot compromise on that as it involves lives and people’s livelihood. This doesn’t mean you need to hire the most expensive professionals out there who may be interested more in making money rather than doing effective work. Instead look around, ask for recommendations, read reviews and check out several options at one time prior to finalizing a specific one.
