5 Tips for A Successful HOA or Condo Roof Cleaning Project

Cleaning the roofs of your HOA or Condo community can be a daunting task with a lot that can go wrong.

But if you’re on top of these five basics, you’ll be in a better position to select the right company to work with and your project is much more likely to go smoothly for the Residents, the Board, and Management.

  1. Qualifications & References – You’ll want to know what type of experience the company has with projects of similar size & scope.
  2. Schedule – You’ll want to work out a specific project schedule so that you know exactly when the project will start, how long it will take, and where crews should be on any given day. Obviously this should also be communicated to your residents.
  3. Warranties – First you’ll want to know what cleaning process the company will use and verify that this process will not void either your Workmanship or Manufacturer Warranty. Allowing a company to clean your roofs with high-pressure, strong chlorine bleach solutions, or chemicals that have not been approved by the manufacturer can void both of these. Then you’ll want to know the length of time that your roofs are going to stay clean, which company is backing this warranty, and what your recourse is should an issue arise.
  4. Insurance – Contractors working on HOA & Condo properties should be covered under both General Liability and Workers Comp. “Exemption Certificates” can allow some small companies to work without Workers Comp, but they don’t always protect a community from liability if a worker gets injured. Your insurance agent should explain exactly what you need to do to make sure your property is protected.
  5. Contact Person – You’ll want to have one main contact person that will be accessible and responsive to any and all concerns.
