What to Expect from Your Commercial Roofer Moving Forward

We would typically speculate on the future of the roofing industry based on fundamental concepts, such as new ideas and technology. In the coming months, though, we must also factor in how COVID-19 has changed our industry and what that means for our customers and their commercial roofing experience. In this article, we’ll discuss what you can expect from your roofing contractor. 

Your Company’s Changing Needs are Important 

The business landscape of Americans has dramatically shifted since the beginning of the pandemic. For example, positions that were traditionally “office jobs” transitioned to remote work—a change that encouraged many companies to be more open to the idea of virtual work environments in the future. Whatever the case may be for your industry, as the business world continues to shift and evolve in the current climate, your company’s commercial roofing needs may change along with it. Discussing those needs with your roofing contractor is crucial to ensure that your buildings are looked after properly.

Your Roofing Contractor Can Shift to Meet Your Needs

Your roofing company will likely, and hopefully, shift their services to meet your ever-changing needs. Maxwell Roofing and Sheet Metal, Inc., for example, created our Maxwell Monitors solution to provide customers with flexible roof monitoring options—ensuring that damage does not go overlooked even when customers don’t have the capacity to consider their commercial roofs. 

In our case, we saw that our customers had vacant buildings that needed to be looked after. We also saw customers who had too much on their plates without adding roof maintenance to their lists. Maxwell Monitors was our response to these observations so that we could best serve our customers. Talk to your commercial roofing contractor about what you need during this time so that they can help determine the best way to move forward. 

Your Building’s Roof Maintenance Plan is Still Crucial

No matter what is going on in your business this year or the next, stay true to your maintenance schedule. Neglected roofs can lead to costly damage down the road and can even make your building unsafe for employees or tenants. Your roofing contractor can help you set up a maintenance plan that works for you. 

Innovative Roofing Options are Increasingly Popular

One thing that COVID-19 has not changed is innovation. If your business is ready to build or even replace an older roofing system, it’s an excellent time to think about your next roof. To take your planning to the next level, discuss new options with your roofing contractor, such as environmentally friendly or energy-saving solutions

Your Contractor May Operate More Virtually than Before 

Even if your commercial roofing needs have stayed the same, you’ll likely see some changes to your roofer’s processes to further ensure their teams’ safety. You might notice an increased use of drones, for example, which have become integral to safe roof inspections. You might also notice your contractor discussing your roofing options more over the phone or via video conferencing, rather than during face-to-face meetings.
