If you own one or more apartment buildings, your tenants rely on you to provide a stable roof over their head. In order to do so, it’s important to keep an eye on your apartment building’s roofs so that you know their condition, especially as they age.
So, how do you know that your apartment buildings are ready for new commercial roofing? Here are a few basic indicators:
- Tenants complaining of roof leaks. While one isolated case might be just enough to call in for a basic roof repair, if your tenants are complaining in multiple units that there is a leak from the roof, you may want to consider your options.
- The roofing materials are more than 10 years old. Commercial roofing is designed to last through just about anything, but as the materials age and are exposed to the elements, they can lose their effectiveness. Having a commercial roofer complete an inspection annually will help you determine when the time is right.
- You’re planning an expansion. If you’re planning to build new apartments near the same existing development, it may be worth it to extend your capital project to include new commercial roofing for your existing buildings. It can lower your maintenance costs significantly over time.
Depending on the climate conditions and the types of materials that were used to construct your roof, you may find yourself looking into replacement options that will withstand the elements and the test of time.
