After the Storm has Passed

Checking your building’s envelope—roof, exterior walls, doors, and windows—for moisture infiltration from damage as soon as possible after weather events will help to prevent further infiltration and longer-term issues.

You should properly prepare jobsites prior to projects.

Before starting a commercial reroofing or other building envelope maintenance project, it is important to properly prepare the jobsite. This includes removing obstacles and debris, making efforts to protect surrounding property, establishing work area boundaries, and installing appropriate signage. A well-prepared jobsite creates a safe and efficient work environment, will help minimize disruptions during the job, and will help ensure successful project completion.

The Importance of Pacing Your Work

Each stage of any large construction project involves many steps. Properly executing the steps within each stage at a safe and deliberate pace and performing them in a specific order is critical to the long-term success of that project.

Roofing material suppliers provide a warranty that will cover roof leaks for several years after a roof has been installed. Keep in mind that the length of roof warranties can usually be negotiated before you sign a contract, but what is most important is that you know how long your roof is covered under warranty and how to contact the roof manufacturer in the event of a leak. However, if the leak has been caused by negligent wear and tear of others accessing the roof, you (the owner) will get the bill for the repair.

Jobsite Management–Customer Focused Success Part 3
