Part of your roof replacement project is preparing your home for the actual construction. You need to accomplish several tasks before your residential roofing company arrives. Preparing your home can help ensure your project goes as seamlessly as possible.
Keep reading for tips on how to get ready for a roof installation.
Let Your Neighbors Know About Your Project
Notify your neighbors ahead of time about your roofing project as a courtesy. They might have kids or children who might be bothered by the noise from the roof installation. Avoid scheduling your roof replacement too early or late in the day to minimize disruptions to your and your neighbors’ routine.
Get Your Interior Ready
Skilled professionals know how to minimize debris from installing shingle roofs. Still, dirt, dust and other debris are inevitable when replacing a roof. Consider moving anything valuable in your attic somewhere safe for the duration of your project. You can cover large or heavy items with a tarp or plastic cover for protection against debris.
Prepare Your Yard
Refuse materials and your new shingles can consume a significant amount of space in your yard. Your roofers will also be walking around outside while doing the job. Before they get to your home, bring all outdoor furniture and décor inside your shed or garage. Also, move your cars from the driveway to protect them from fallen debris.
Relocate Children and Pets
All the commotion, noise and mess from your roofing project can be stressful for your kids and friends. During roof replacement, consider having them stay with friends or family. It’s best to keep children out of the construction site because there can be hazardous tools, equipment and materials.
