Planning a Commercial Roof Replacement

Roof Replacement Construction

If you plan on having your commercial roof, there are various things for you to consider when preparing for this replacement. You first need to consider whether a replacement is your best course of action.

Before you begin your roof replacement, you need to conduct assessments that consider the following factors:

What is the Purpose of the Building and the Long-Term Goals for It?

Like with any project, you need to outline the purpose of the building, and you plan to use the space to continue to grow your business. With various roofing materials available that each offers its features, it’s best to understand how the building will be used.

Ensuring your contractor understands the purpose of the building is also crucial to the timing of the replacement. For example, healthcare facilities can’t afford to have their building out of commission for a long period, so they may opt for bigger maintenance projects to ensure minimal disruption.

Additionally, your roofing contractor needs to understand your long-term plans for the building. This will impact your decisions on any roof repairs or replacements. If you are leasing your space, you may consider matching the roof’s lifecycle to the length of your lease, or you may want to utilize a certain type of roofing membrane that can accommodate additions to the structure.

Whether you are a permanent resident of the building or leasing it, you need to make this clear to your roofing contractors.

What is Your Project Budget?

Having a clear budget for your project will help your contractor determine the best commercial roofing system or repairs that suit your desired price range. With a budget, you can move forward with your project in a financially responsible way.

If you have a damaged or failing commercial roofing system, it can significantly impact your operating costs. An appraisal of your building may find that you need a bigger budget to replace your roof, but keep in mind that these repairs or replacements will save you money in the long run.

Should You Have a Professional Assessment Completed?

Before you start any commercial roofing project, it is critical to have a professional roofing contractor visit your site to complete an assessment of the roofing structure. They can work with you to evaluate your commercial roofing system honestly and identify any potential areas that could cause issues. They can also confirm whether you need repairs or a replacement.

At ACR1, we can help you prioritize repairs before replacement is needed. We can also expertly handle your commercial roofing system repairs or replacement. We are familiar with the applicable state codes and regulations, roofing systems, changing climates, and products that work best for your commercial roof.

How to Prepare for a Commercial Roof Replacement

After considering these factors, it’s time to begin the planning process for your new commercial roofing system.

Have a Plan in Place

Like any project, you shouldn’t start a commercial roof replacement without a plan in place. With a plan, you can reduce the risk of the project taking too long and eating up your budget. In this stage of the process, you need to define the specifics of your project, such as the square footage of the roof, the materials, costings, etc. You also need to create a timeline for the project with a start date and an end date.

With a plan, you can clearly define your goals and set a realistic timeline for the project to help you stay on track and within budget.

Evaluate the Costs and Set a Budget

As mentioned earlier in this article, a budget is a key part of a roofing project. The cost of your commercial roof replacement will depend on the size of your property and the availability of your commercial roofing contractor.

Set aside time to analyze the various roofing options and evaluate what you can realistically afford. You also want to make sure you set aside a percentage of your budget for change orders, delays, or other potential costs that could arise during the project.

Prepare Your Commercial Building for Construction

You will need to complete a cleanup before your commercial roofing project. Be sure to evaluate your roof and remove any obstacles or clutter that could interfere with the flow or safety of your commercial roofing job.

Prepare Your Staff for the Project

It is critical to the safety of the commercial roofers and your staff to keep your staff informed and updated on the roofing project. Be sure to set up the construction, designated with warning signs. This will help enforce the safety measures your commercial roofers are taking. By providing clear communication and signage to your staff, you can keep both the roofers and your staff safe throughout the roof replacement process.
