Maintenance responsibilities within a deed-restricted community, condominium complex or Planned Unit Developments (PUDs) is one of the main concerns of Homeowners Associations. Usually, HOAs are required to purchase insurance for upkeep and repair of common areas, which certainly includes re-roofing projects. The liability insurance will cover common areas that are damaged by wind, rain, fire or hailstorm. There comes a time when a roof needs to be replaced and repairs and occasional patchwork will not protect the building from further damage. Roof inspections on a regular basis, or after a major storm has moved through the area, could reveal roof sections that are devoid of granules in the asphalt shingles, many roof shingles that are not securely fastened to the roof, or are curled at the edges and cupped in the middle. Homeowners Associations can expect this type of wear and tear on traditional roofing shingles, especially with aging roofs between 20-25 years old. A fierce storm can completely ruin an older roof that has deteriorating shingles. With Gerard stone-coated metal roofing, we are putting an end to large re-roofing projects every 10-20 years.
