Commercial roofing is a lot more complex compared to its residential counterpart, which is why when property managers consult roofing contractors about roof replacement options. This involves a detailed assessment of the roof’s condition and the building’s requirements.
Leading roofing manufacturer GAF has just made your research as a property manager easier with a new, free web-based tool: the GAF Roof Advisor™. Let us tell you how it works.
The GAF Roof Advisor
The GAF Roof Advisor is a simple, web-based commercial roofing selection tool in questionnaire format that focuses on commercial roof selection. It works on both desktop and mobile browsers and doesn’t require special applications or plugins to work. The first six questions ask about the roof’s current condition such as building location, life expectancy, and roofing substrate. If this was a face-to-face consultation, this would be the part where a roofing consultant will assess your roof’s condition, and what kind of work will need to be done.
The second half (the latter two-thirds, to be precise) involves targets, goals, and what you want the roof to be. The questions include details like expected building ownership, possible causes of disruption, repairability, and even forward-looking factors, such as whether the roofing will be subjected to weather extremes or if you are considering putting solar panels on your roof.
Once you have completed the questionnaire, a full recap of your answers is provided. You can hit the Back button and change your answer as needed. Then you’ll get a list of suggested roof system options based on your answers. You have the option to print this for later use.
How It Helps
The GAF Roof Advisor helps property owners do preliminary research on roofing options even before sitting down with us for your initial consultation. Being familiar with GAF’s commercial roofing products—the ones that fit your building type and requirements—leads into a focused and productive consultation. This, in turn, will help you be comfortable asking the right questions before making a decision.
