Commercial roofing projects are typically scheduled to incur the least amount of disruption for building tenants. However, as they are usually extensive, they require lengthy timelines, meaning they will need more than just a weekend to be completed. As such, it’s inevitable that tenants will be on-site while roof work is being carried out.
Need to call in a commercial roofing company but worried that you’re going to have problems with your tenants? Century Roofing and Siding offers these tips:
Offer as Many Details as Possible
Most tenants understand that roof work is essential and getting repairs or replacements done will cause some level of disturbance. You do, however, have to set expectations early and offer as many details as you can, like when will the project begin, how long will it take, when are you expecting it to be completed and what kind of disruptions can be expected. Make sure as well that all tenants are notified and that you have signs put up throughout the building providing key information about the project.
Consider Parking and Traffic
People are busy and impatient, and anything that gets in the way of their routine can throw a wrench in their plans for the day. This is why you have to make sure that they experience minimal inconvenience. You can do this by ensuring the installation crew doesn’t take up a lot of parking spaces, for instance, or that they limit the time they cause traffic around the building. It might sound like a small thing but blocking someone’s parking space or way can escalate quickly into an unsavory confrontation.
