Your roofing system like the rest of your commercial property is an asset of your business. As such, you need to make sure that it is in good working condition. Twice-a-year inspections carried out by a reputable roofing contractor ensures the structural integrity of the whole system. The expertise of the pros will be crucial since they can identify any form of damage and other problems as quickly as possible. But to ensure that you’re getting everything that you need from your inspection, here are some questions to ask your contractor.
“Which Areas of the Roof Do You Focus?”
The experts’ answer to this question will help you verify that the roofing contractor is familiar with the commercial roofing system. More importantly, their responses will give you a better understanding of the roof components that may be susceptible to damage and need immediate attention.
“Will Documentation Be Provided?”
Any roofing company that performs roof inspections must ensure each session is well-documented. The pros must provide photo documentation of damage found on the roofing system as well as any repairs that have been done. Of course, a complete inspection report should be provided to you, detailing the current state of the whole roof.
“What Does the Roof’s Condition Tell About Its Maintenance?”
This question must be asked after the roofers have finished the inspection. They can give you a straight answer on whether or not the whole system is being cared for or not. Proper, regular maintenance helps the commercial roof stay in good operating condition.
“Why Were Repairs Needed?”
It is another question to ask after the inspection. While it is meant to keep the roof in good condition, too many repairs can indicate a problem. Frequent repairs, after all, could mean the whole system may have structural problems that may require a total replacement. Consult with the contractor as soon as you find a repair or two was done according to the report.
