How Roof Inspections Can Make Property Managers' Jobs Easier
As a property manager, you want to keep your property value high, but not spend every waking moment fixing problems. They say a “stitch in time saves nine”, and this is true for your property. Why wait for a problem to appear when doing routine maintenance can prevent the problem from ever happening? Having regular Denver roof repair and inspections can make any property managers’ job easier.
Why Regular Denver Roof Repair is Vital
When it comes to property management and life, it’s never a matter of “if” problems happen, but “when” they do. Denver roof repair and regular inspections are often undervalued in the property management world, but that neglect can cost you big time in the end.
Anyone can purchase a property, lease it out, and forget about it. But the weather and elements have not. That property will be hit with any and every weather that comes its way, until finally, more than just the roof is damaged.
You Can Pay Now, or Pay Later
Here’s a sample of how roof cost work with the “forgotten” roof.
- Install the roof in the first year: $130,000
- Do nothing for the second year: $0
- Roof damage for the third year: $20,000
- Another repair in the fourth year: $30,000
- Another repair in the fifth year: $25,000
In just five years you have spent more money than you wanted on your roof. The neglect from year two, and the time between large repairs in the other years led to these giant repair bills. If the “forgotten” roof had been a “remembered” roof, the property manager would have paid smaller amounts each month for routine inspections. The inspections would have caught smaller damages and been able to do a less expensive minor repair, rather than the larger repair costs.
You can see that paying a smaller amount over time can save you large costs down the road. Paying now can be what saves you pain, heartache, and financial problems later.
