Planning Tips for Roofing Project Management Success

Don’t forget that a roof replacement project is essentially a collaboration between you and your roofing company or contractor. That’s why clear and constant communication is vital to the project’s success. 

To help you manage your project, here are some collaboration tips: 

Clarify the Project Scope

During the initial consultation, it’s important to clarify with your contractors the scope of the project as well as the extent of their responsibilities. Your new roof’s warranty, safety expectations and the cleanup of the construction debris are just some of the details that should be discussed. And, given that roofing projects generate a lot of noise, it would be a good idea to discuss with them how the disruptions to your daily routine can be minimized.

Get to Know the General Contractor Overseeing the Project

It’s standard practice for roofing companies to appoint a general contractor to oversee your roof replacement project. Before the start of a home improvement project, homeowners should obtain the contact details of the general contractor and get to know the person a bit. It’s recommended that you schedule weekly meetings with the general contractor to keep track of your roof replacement’s progress.

Discuss Contingency Plans 

You can’t rule out weather-related disruptions, which is why you should also discuss with your roofers their contingency plans in case the weather doesn’t cooperate.

Get Everything in Writing

It’s never a good idea to solely rely on verbal agreements – always put everything in writing. This applies to estimates as well. Most contractors offer free roof estimates. But, to make sure the project costs don’t balloon later on, you should ask for written estimates. 

Looking for roofers near you? Here’s a tip: it’s best to hire local. Since local contractors are familiar with the local climate and building codes, they can make better recommendations.
