Bad weather is inevitable so it’s important for you to plan for when a storm hits your property. Proper preparation can help you save money on roof and siding repairs by minimizing the amount of damage. As a property manager, you have a responsibility to your property owners. TJ Exteriors explains how to prepare for a storm.
Prepare a Playbook
You should create a storm procedures playbook that’s filled with key information like emergency contacts, roles and responsibilities, staff phone numbers and addresses and more. You should also work closely with property owners to prepare a checklist of channels to share critical information with your building tenants. You should prepare a reliable means of communication to keep your building residents informed.
Document the State of Your Property
You should make it a point to document the state of your property before any storms. It is beneficial to take note of the building’s condition before a storm because you will compare and contrast it with its condition following the storm. As an experienced roofing contractor, we recommend taking photos of your roof, windows, gutters, downspouts and siding. You’ll use this information to work with your insurance company.
Inspect Your Gutters
We also highly recommend inspecting your building’s gutter system. Leaves and debris might have accumulated in your gutters, forming gutter clogs. These gutter clogs can cause water damage during a storm. You should also check your gutters for damage and have them replaced if necessary. Fortunately, we can install high-quality seamless gutters for our customers.
