Are you planning for a commercial roof replacement for your building in 2022? If so, it’s time to call your commercial roofing contractor and schedule an appointment. This is especially true if you have a large, flat roof with equipment on top. We may need to involve other contractors with a flat roof replacement than a steep slope roof replacement.
Communicate with Your Commercial Roofing Contractor
Do you have AC units or other equipment on the roof that is no longer functioning or necessary? Tell your commercial roofing contractor as you walk the roof during the initial inspection. A commercial roof replacement is the perfect time to remove them, seal up any holes remaining and install the new roof on top of them. What about goals for your new roofing system? Are you adding skylights? Do you want something that will increase the energy efficiency of your building or even allow you to become LEEDS certified? Your commercial roofing contractor needs to know these things during their estimate and planning process.
It Takes Time
A commercial roof replacement takes time. Depending on the size of the roof, it may take a week or more between preparing the roof, making repairs and cleaning up the jobsite after installation. The roofing material you choose also factors into how long it will take. A portion of your parking lot may be inaccessible or certain entrances may be blocked for a day or two. Coordinating all these things take planning for a seamless roof replacement.
Other Contractors May Need to be Notified
Depending on the work being done, your commercial roofing contractor may need to contact other contractors with equipment on the roof. They may need access to someone with building plans to verify where gas and electric lines run.
