A new, well-installed and beautiful roof is an outstanding investment that can prolong its lifespan and increase the resale value of your home. No more rain leaking from the ceiling, mold crawling in the attic and a damp smell lingering in the air. The curb appeal is wonderful, but the job is not over yet. Before your roofing contractor packs up and marches on to the next house, there is the matter of roofing cleanup.
The Importance of Roofing Cleanup
In the course of the removal and installation of the roof, old roofing components, construction tools and other debris often pile up around the house. A good contractor understands that cleaning up the mess is part of the job and will make an effort to lay down tarps and have a dumpster on-site before the installation begins to discard debris swiftly and efficiently as the job progresses. This practice prevents accidents, like stepping on a lost nail hiding on the lawn, from occurring and causing damage throughout the entire roofing process, leaving your property looking pristine.
Tips for Hiring a Roofer Who Handles Cleanup
Here are some tips to make sure that the roofing contractor will not hop off and leave behind a damaged driveway, torn-up lawn, wrecked landscaping and other messy leftover debris.
- Make sure that cleanup is included in the contract as part of a complete roofing job before signing on the dotted line.
- Do not sign off on a roofing project until the cleanup has been performed and completed.
- Have your roofers check for nails and fasteners using a magnetic device before they leave the site.
- Roofing tar should be removed from your pathways and siding before your roofer takes off. The roofer should also have proper cleanup tools for roofing tar since it is difficult to get rid of.
