Irregular roofing maintenance is just as bad as neglecting to maintain your roof. That’s why it’s important that you keep track of your roof’s maintenance. Keeping a detailed and complete roofing file can help you do that.
What are the details that should be included in a roofing file?
Your Roof’s Basic Info
Your roof’s dimensions, the kind of roofing material installed, and the brand used or the name of the manufacturer should be included in the roofing file. Taking note of the brand of sheet metal or roofing material used to make the roofing panels will help ensure your roof’s performance remains consistent.
Receipts Issued By Contractors
You also should include receipts issued by your contractor in a roofing file. These receipts will serve as proof your roofing system was maintained properly in case you need to file a claim with your insurer. Remember: Irregular or improper maintenance, or any negligence on the homeowner’s part for that matter, can void your roof’s insurance policy.
Previous Inspection Reports
You can also use previous inspection reports as proof your roof underwent routine maintenance. Your roofing contractors will also need these when they conduct a roofing inspection. The reports contain important information about parts of the roof that have yet to undergo a thorough inspection. Pieces of info such as these can help contractors figure out which parts of your roofing system have serious issues.
Contractor’s Contact Information
Don’t forget to include your contractor’s contact information in the roofing file. That way, you can contact them right away in case you have a roofing emergency. It’s also best to hire local contractors so they can conduct emergency repairs as soon as possible.
