Crucial Details to Record
Information about each completed roofing job should include batch numbers of all products used, quantity of materials and work hours required, any subcontractor fees paid, equipment rental, weather conditions during application and any special conditions that require monitoring. It is essential that all contractual agreements also be kept in the job file. This would include copies of your initial bid, contractor’s agreement, documentation of any verbal agreements concerning the job, maintenance provisions or warranties.
Update the job file regularly with notes from annual or biannual follow-up inspections. This gives you a history of the roof, including its longevity and performance, along with a record of any repairs or maintenance, and their cost, etc.
Why Keeping Records is Important
The reason for keeping such extensive records is their potential future value. If at some later point a roof problem develops, information collected in this file can offer valuable clues. Also, keeping records on the time and product used to complete a project helps form a job history, useful in preparing for future bids.
This information can be valuable in demonstrating your products’ performance to customers as well as serving as a reference for bidding new jobs. You may even want to use one of your job files as a portfolio to show potential customers. Your careful record keeping and attention to detail will demonstrate your ability to organize your people and equipment and perform the job in a professional matter.
