A roofing file holds information on the materials used to build your roof and any roof repair service it has received. It’s important as it helps business owners and property managers stay in the know of the condition of their roof.
Here are things that must be included in a roofing file.
Basic Roof Information
This includes the size and location of the roof as well as the penetrations and equipment around it. Other information from the inspection process is also outlined.
They are helpful during inspections. You can draw one with the data gathered from the initial inspection. A copy of the plan can be used several times, you can just mark each inspection with a different color of pen. This will help you study the results of previous inspections, giving you an idea of the trouble areas of your roof.
Take down information on the type of membrane, flashings, insulation, deck and other components on your roof. You can figure most of them during the initial inspection. Keep the labels and manufacturer maintenance manuals of the roofing products used during an emergency roofing service or a roof replacement.
Keep a digital and an original copy of your roofing warranties. The warranty states who can repair your roof, what you can do without consulting the manufacturer and how frequent you need to maintain the roof for the warranty to stay valid.
These ensure you’re fulfilling the warranty terms if it’s still valid. It will also help you keep track of areas on the roof that need repair.
