If you own a commercial building or plan to own one in the future there are some key things to keep in mind regarding the roof of your commercial building. As a landlord and building owner, you are responsible for maintaining your commercial roof. Here’s the key items you need to know about commercial roofing.
- Type – It’s important to be knowledgeable about the type of roof you have so you can be familiar with types of problems that may occur and how you can prevent them. Types of commercial roofing include built-up roofing, single-ply membrane, modified bitumen, and metal roofing.
- Warranty – Being familiar with your warranty could save you time and money. Most commercial roofs come with a warranty that will cover manufacture defects or possibly installation errors.
- Keep Track of Repairs – Just like a vehicle, it’s always a good idea to keep track of repairs so you have proper documentation for future repairmen for the roof or to pass on to the next owner of the commercial building.
- Budget – As a landlord or building owner, it’s a good idea to set aside some money in your budget for inspections, unforeseen damages, and upkeep so in the case of damage occurring, you are financially prepared.
