Building Owner Representatives

How do you know the information you receive about your roofing system is accurate?

As a building owner representative, your challenge is to make sure tenants are happy, building budgets are maintained, the integrity of the building isn’t compromised, and to ensure your building owners are well taken care of. But, managing multiple buildings makes it difficult to know which roofs are in need of repair or replacement work and which ones aren’t. You know roofing systems are complicated, but you aren’t a roofing expert.

Alliance is the roof expert for insurance professionals.

Where do you get help?

With so many other projects to manage and tasks to perform, you don’t have time to climb on every building to evaluate the condition of the roofing system.

Maintaining Budgets

It’s your challenge to maintain the budget for each building you manage, but you don’t know the condition of the roofing systems or when they’ll need to be replaced.

Tenant Relationships

Tenants all have something to say about their building when you talk to them, but you don’t have the budget or manpower to resolve every single issue.

Associated Costs

It isn’t always as simple as patching a hole or replacing the roof. The costs of repair or replacement work goes beyond labor and material.

Quality Contractors

Because roofing systems are complicated, not every roofing contractor is qualified to install the one you need. Knowing who to hire and what type of quality work they do is difficult.

Biased Information Leads To Overspending and Faulty Installation

Trusting the contractor you always use.

Having a proprietary contractor you call for all of your building issues can be great. But, do they really understand your roofing needs? And, do they have your and your owner’s best interest in mind? Managing contractor relationships can be complicated, but not hiring a qualified contractor leads to future costly repair work.

Hiring the contractor with the lowest cost.

You manage budgets every day and saving money is desired by the owner. But, hiring the contractor offering the lowest cost may result in more costly repairs and earlier replacement.

Making informed decisions.

As an independent consultant, we can become a partner who provides independent information about your roofing systems, so you can make informed decisions on repairing and replacing the roofs you manage.
