Ensure the Safety of Your Multi-Family Building
Whether you own or manage a multi-family building or HOA community, you know the responsibility of ensuring your roof’s structural integrity. Multi-family unit roofs provide protection against weather elements, insulation, and aesthetic value. However, over time, the roof of a multi-family unit can become damaged or worn out, which may require repair or replacement. Entrusting your apartment roof repair and maintenance to an experienced company like Gilpin Roofing is the best way to promote safety for your tenants. We have experience working on all kinds of multi-family buildings, including condominium roof repair work and on homes in HOA communities.
Types of Multi-Family Roof Repairs
Multi-family unit roofs can require different types of repairs, depending on the extent of the damage. Let’s cover some of the most common types of damage and the causes of those damages to multi-family unit roofs.
If shingles are missing, cracked, or curled, they may need to be replaced. Shingles protect the roof from water damage and UV rays, so any damaged shingles should be addressed as soon as possible.
Flashing is the metal that seals the roof edges and transitions. If it becomes loose or damaged, it can allow water to seep into the roof and cause damage. Replacing the flashing often means pulling up multiple layers of shingles as well. This is why we recommend leaving this work up to the professionals.
Water leaks can damage the interior of the building and affect the insulation. Repairing leaks helps prevent more extensive damage to the building. If you spot a leak in your building’s ceiling or walls, it could indicate that water is seeping in through the roof.
Gutters and Downspouts
Gutters and downspouts can become clogged with debris and prevent proper drainage. This can cause water to build up and lead to more extensive damage if not treated immediately.
Signs of Damage to Apartment & Condominium Roofs
There are several signs to look for that may indicate damage to the roof of an apartment building or condo. These signs include:
Water stains on walls or ceilings may indicate a leaky roof. If left unaddressed, this can lead to mold growth and further damage to the building.
Buckling shingles may indicate that the shingles are not properly sealed, which can cause them to lift and curl.
Granules in Gutters
If you notice granules in your gutters, it may indicate that the shingles are wearing out.
If the roof appears to be sagging, this can indicate a structural issue. It’s important to address this issue immediately as it can lead to further damage and even collapse.
Your roof’s flashing acts as a sealant to protect moisture from seeping into the joints. If this flashing cracks or deteriorates over time, moisture is able to get into the interior of your roof and cause damage.
When Should You Consider Re-Roofing Your Multi-Family Complex?
There is always an argument as to when you should re-roof your multi-family building. Do you replace all the roofs on a specific timetable or do you wait until you start having problems? There are arguments for both sides. Let’s go over some of the times to consider replacing the roofs in your complex.
Your Roofs are Getting Older
All roofs have a lifespan. The older your roof is, the more of a liability it becomes, especially for insurance companies. You can extend the life of a roof with a regular maintenance program. On the other hand, if the roofs have not been maintained well, they could be more susceptible to leaks and other issues down the road. It is also possible that your multi family roof installation was not properly
handled in the first place. In this event, the roof’s lifespan may be well below the warranty period. The only way to truly know the condition of your age compared to its age is to have it inspected by a professional.
You are Spending Too Much on Repairs
If you find yourself spending thousands repairing each roof in your multifamily unit, it is likely time to consider a replacement. When you compare the cost of replacement to the cost of fixing consistent issues with multiple roofs over a period of time, replacement begins to look a lot more feasible long term.
You Want to Make Improvements to the Community
Is your multi-family complex looking outdated? Perhaps you want to sell in the near future and are considering upgrading the roofs to be more attractive to buyers. (We also have roof certification services if so!) Whatever the case may be, upgrading the roofs within the property adds to the aesthetic and functional value. We can also handle skylight installation if you are looking to elevate the property’s value with natural light.
We Work with Portsmouth HOAs
Live in an HOA and need to have your roof replaced? No problem! Just contact the HOA manager or board of directors to establish whether you are permitted to hire us for roof repairs or replacement. This is because many HOAs have strict guidelines on what types of roofs they allow. You may only be able to get a roof replacement with a specific material and style.
