Roof Asset Management
HOME – Roof Design Specifications
Roof design specifications are an important part of an effective Roof Asset Management plan. The necessary input required to get to the design stage include a detailed roof system analysis along with a client consultation. Afterwards, the true needs or expectations of the building owner will be uncovered.
When the actual roof life cycle costs are revealed the true costs of a roof system can be established.
Most roofing contractors that simply want to sell a new roof don’t want their customers to see the bigger picture.
The total cost of a roof system represents the initial replacement price along with roof repairs, roof maintenance, warranties, life expectancy and inflation.
One of the leading causes of roof system failure is improper roofing installation techniques, otherwise known as poor workmanship. Another cause is incorrect roof design specifications.
Roof system lifetime expenditures are the sum of the immediate and future costs. And a proper roof specification must incorporate all of the required roofing components for that project. A professional roof consultant will understand the entire design to build process. Roof construction industry knowledge is just not a skill set that many salesmen possess.
The proper information is the key to determining what type of roofing system should be installed. For example, a roof condition report will determine the functionality or lifespan of the current system. Perhaps you have a three-tab shingle roof that failed after 18 years. Is that all you are expecting in a new roof, or would that be a poor investment?
Price alone should never be the deciding factor when choosing a roof system. Also, the recommendation from a roofer with the lowest bid usually does not represent your best interests.
