As a professional property or facility manager, you understand just how important it is to properly oversee a roofing job. A major construction project can severely affect not just your business’ bottom line, but the safety of the occupants and employees in your building as well. With that said, here are a few tips to help you successfully manage a roofing project after you have selected a contractor.
1. Plan Carefully and Early
First of all, you should begin with a well-communicated project scope. A thorough and well-thought-out plan can help you set realistic expectations about the project so you can prepare accordingly. This also helps the contractor establish accurate pricing estimates. Prior to beginning the project, make sure that you go through all the details with your contractor, point-by-point.
2. Make Safety a Priority
Of all the guidelines a good property manager should follow, jobsite safety should be at the very top of the list. Without the right safety protocols and procedures, you risk your business being fined or the project being stopped because of a safety incident. Work closely with your contractor to ensure that the proper procedures are being followed to the letter and avoid cutting corners when it comes to safety.
3. Take the Weather Into Consideration
Unfortunately, the weather is something we don’t really have control over, so try to start your project when you are reasonably sure of good weather. Your contractor might adjust the schedule based on the weather conditions, so make some allowances for that, and try to be as flexible as possible.
