Professional roofers will be the ones actually installing your new roof, but as the homeowner, you still play the role of project manager. In today’s post, Universal Roofing & Exteriors shares some tips on managing your residential roofing project successfully.
Know Your Project Scope – When managing a roofing project, project scope is key. Understand exactly what it is you want to accomplish, and communicate clearly with your contractor. This allows your contractor to establish accurate pricing estimates for your project.
Adhere to Building Codes – During a residential roofing project, it’s vital that you adhere to the local building codes. That way, you can avoid fines from your local authorities. With that in mind, before the roofing project commences, coordinate the code requirements with the manufacturer installation guidelines. If there are any discrepancies between the two, make sure to have it resolved with your contractor before the project starts.
Plan According to the Weather – You can’t control the weather, but you can plan your project during a season where the likelihood of weather-related delays is smaller. That’s why spring and summer are great times to tackle roof replacement.
Perform a Post-Installation Walkthrough – Once your roof replacement project is done, consider performing a post-installation walkthrough with your contractor before giving the final payment. That way, you can determine if they’ve done everything according to your specifications or if there’s anything you’re unsatisfied with and would like them to rectify.
