Homeowner association boards for condominiums meet monthly to discuss the association’s finances. This includes maintenance of roofs, grounds and recreational facilities in the condo community. A property management company may be involved.
Commercial roof replacement is expensive for condo owners and continual maintenance is a way to preserve the building’s roof. A roof that is well-maintained by a professional roofing company will last many years, based on its composition.
But there is a time when the roof needs to be replaced. Repairs and patchwork just won’t protect the building. A new roof is probably needed when:
- There are many bald spots from missing granules in the shingles.
- The remaining shingles are curled at the edges or cupped in the middle.
- The roof is more than 20-25 years old.
- Condo owners experience continual ceiling leaks.
A community roof should be inspected after a major storm has moved through the Chicago area. The roof may not have sustained any damage, but it should still be inspected by trained professionals with the necessary safety equipment. A professional roof inspector will also check the underlayment, soffits and the fascia where the roof connects to the walls.
High winds can cause some shingles to curl at the edges or bulge in the center. This breaks the sealing material and it can lead to leaks during heavy rain. Large hailstones can damage the granules in the shingle material that protects the roof. A heavy storm can completely ruin an older roof that has deteriorating shingles. A new underlayment may be necessary, an added expenditure. Bent, dented and broken gutters should also be replaced.
