However uncomfortable and costly they are, roofing emergencies happen all the time, even to well-maintained, properly cared-for roofs. Emergencies are even more annoying in apartment buildings, so here are a few measures that property managers can use to prepare for unexpected roofing issues:
- Make sure the roof is regularly inspected and maintained – Colorado Springs commercial roofing maintenance is the best way to strengthen the roof and to make it as resistant as possible to extreme weather;
- Get large trees around the property trimmed to prevent any damage caused to the roof by falling branches;
- Always be ready to mitigate the damage – if a storm hits in the middle of the night and it devastates the roof on the property that you are in charge of, the only thing you can do is to locate the leak and to place drop cloths and buckets underneath the leak to prevent further damage;
- Work with roofing specialists that provide emergency services – find Colorado Springs commercial roofing contractors who handle emergencies and make sure you include the conditions of using those services into a contract, too. Get the roofer’s number on speed dial and call him whenever a large storm is announced to make sure he is available in case you need his emergency repair services.
