Commercial roofing work can be a hassle. As a facility manager or property owner, you have to oversee the project and make sure it does not cause disruptions to ongoing operations. Not only that, but you are also responsible for the safety of the building occupants, including employees, clients and tenants.
In today’s post, Hunterdon Roofing, Siding and Window Company offers some tips for successful roofing project management.
Prepare a Well-Designed Plan
Before anything else, you need to prepare a well-designed plan with your roofing contractor. A proper project scope helps you understand all of its components and allows the contractor to establish pricing estimates. Be sure to go over every little detail; missing a single one can impact the roofing project and affect the performance of your roof.
For this reason, you need to work closely with your contractor and discuss roofing materials, safety expectations and warranty details. You may also want to plan regular meetings to review the schedule and address any problems that may arise along the way.
Prioritize Safety Measures
Safety should always be on the top of the list in any commercial roofing work. Avoid cutting corners on safety procedures and ensure your contractors follow proper OSHA regulations. It is also important that you understand your contractor’s liability insurance, as you may be held accountable for liability issues that they may be unable to cover.
Use Smart Technology
These days, there are many types of smart technology that you can use with your roofing projects. Aerial roof measurement tools, for instance, help contractors collect technical data and even visualize what a roofing project might eventually look like. After gathering detailed renderings using aerial photos, the software can match up edges, colors, and shapes to create a three-dimensional image of the roof. With that, you can design the look of your new roof and use it for future reference.
Keep Your Workspace Clean
Remember that a clean workspace delivers a safe work environment and encourages a positive experience within employees. As such, you need to talk to your contractors about keeping the job site clean at all times. In addition to that, be sure to have a conversation about expectations regarding unprofessional behavior on the job site. At the same time, don’t forget to inform building occupants about the upcoming roofing work. Informing them about it through a memo can help minimize inconveniences.
