Property Managers have a lot to accomplish on a daily, weekly and even monthly basis. They are in charge of just about everything for the buildings they manage. This can include finding and screening prospective tenants, managing complaints and maintenance issues, as well as handling tenant move outs and evictions.
It’s simply astounding just how much Property Managers have on their plates at one time.
This is why it is so important for Property Managers to have a trusted list of resources for maintenance issues. At Pacific Pride Roofing, we pride ourselves on being the #1 go-to roofing expert for our property management clients. They trust us to get the job done right no matter what it is.
Here are just some of the most requested jobs we perform for our property managers.
When property investors are looking to purchase a building, it’s important for them to understand what shape the roof is in. Does it need to be repaired? Does it still have a valid warranty? How long will it last before it needs to be fully replaced? With quality information, investors can determine the proper price for the building and any mandated updates before they purchase. We provide this information to the property manager who in turn shares it with the owner. Everyone has the information they need to move forward in a timely manner.
Many times, our property manager clients are in need of full roof replacements. This type of work can be challenging for property managers as they are always trying to keep business as usual while the replacement is happening. At Pacific Pride Roofing, we work with our clients to make sure we stay out of the way so that business can continue with minor interruptions.
Roof repairs are essential for maintaining the life of any roof. A well-functioning roof system is often “out of sight, out of mind.” However, it’s important to frequently inspect your roofing system in order to detect potential problems. The fact is, the longer you wait to fix small issues, the more likely they become significant problems.
Here are four roof repairs that should be made right away.
1. Missing or Loose Shingles
Shingles are designed to protect your home. Properly installing them can ensure water will not get underneath. Missing shingles and loose shingles must get fixed right away to assure the integrity of your roofing system.
2. Fallen Debris
When debris falls on the roof, it can cause immediate damage. Even if it doesn’t leave a hole in the roof, it can be dangerous. Items that sit on the roof often harbor moisture which harms the shingles where the debris is sitting. It’s important to remove debris on a regular basis and then inspect for damage.
There is nothing more damaging to your roofing system than leaking water. If you notice a leak—even if it’s a small one—it’s important that you call a roofing company right away. Even if it doesn’t look bad at present, that leak could cause significant damage to the roof support structure. What’s more, it can contribute to growing mold and mildew in your attic.
4. Clogged Gutters
While gutters are not technically part of the roof, they are an important part of the overall roofing system. Keeping them free of debris and unclogged will allow water to flow away from your house and into your yard. If you notice something clogging the gutters, or see an area where they are overflowing, have it cleaned out immediately.
Regular roof maintenance is vital to the longevity of any roofing system. We are vigilant with our property management clients ensuring they are on a regular maintenance schedule. This is also extremely important in order to get the full value out of the life of their roof warranty. Here are some of the maintenance activities we perform at least twice per year.
• Moss Control
• Debris Removal
• Minor Repairs
• Clean Gutters
Gutters have one job: to divert water away from your home and off your roof. If your rain gutters are clogged with piles of soggy leaves, sticks and other debris, a heavy rainstorm can create pools of water in the gutters that have no way to drain. This water can then seep into your roofing system and destroy it.

As a commercial real estate investor, it’s important to have a roofing company that I can count on. Pacific Pride Roofing has provided quality services for me, everything from maintenance and repairs to 40K foot commercial roof replacements. I appreciate that I can call and talk to them. They are timely and very sensitive to the fact I have a problem. With me, they are Johnny on the Spot. With that, their emergency pricing is the same as their regular pricing. They don’t add a surcharge in an emergency. I like that. They’re just honest people. It’s refreshing today to have a company be straight up and honest with you. It’s a quality that really sets them apart
