As a commercial property landlord, you have a lot on your plate. You’re probably managing several properties at once, each of which will come with unique challenges. Between managing rent collections and ensuring each property is maintained, it’s easy to forget that you have other responsibilities outside of your direct scope of work. It’s something that frequently occurs when it comes to roofing or construction work your commercial building needs. Many landlords remember that they need to hire an accredited Auckland commercial roofing contractors to get the job done safely and correctly but forget that they have responsibilities for scheduling this roofing work. Here’s what you need to consider if you’re planning on hiring a roofing contractor soon.
When Will Work Start And Stop?
It’s essential that you schedule work to start and stop at the correct times. You also need to take into consideration time restrictions that apply to your area when estimating how many working hours will be required on site to attend to a roofing issue. Most places in the CBD allow for construction work to take place between 6:30 am and 10:30 pm on weekdays, from 7 am to 11 pm on Saturdays and between 9 am and 7 pm on Sundays. If your building is in a residential area the restrictions are much more rigid, with low noise levels permitted between 6:30 am and 7:30 am on weekdays, regular construction work between 7:30 am and 6 pm and no noisy work between 6 pm and 8 pm. Construction on Saturdays can only occur from 7:30 am to 6 pm, with nothing allowed on Sundays or public holidays.
Keep Your Roofing Work Going Smoothly
To prevent complaints or the issuing of fines, there are a few things you can do as a landlord to smooth out the roofing process once it has begun. If you anticipate your roofing work will be noisy, you can alert nearby businesses or residences that roofing will be taking place so that they can make the necessary arrangements. You should also communicate this to your tenants so that they have the chance to prepare or make alternative arrangements off-site – for example scheduling meetings at client offices on days when the teams undertake the most intensive work.
Making sure to do the above won’t erase the inconvenience of having to complete noisy roofing work, but it will keep your neighbours and tenants happy. Of course, working with reputable commercial roofing contractors will make the process even easier to manage, as they’ll adhere to your working hours, complete the work quickly and efficiently, and use up to date and serviced tools that will be less noisy to operate.
