No roof lasts forever. So, if you have been or will plan to stay in your home for a long time, then you will probably have to schedule a roof replacement one day. The right preparations can minimize the risk of stress and delays for this project.
Getting the Yard Ready
Many people will be walking in your yard during the project. In addition, nails, old shingles and other debris will fall off your roof. You need to prepare your yard for falling debris. First, you have to clear your vehicles from the driveway and garage to give your roofer some space for their dumpster and vehicles. You will also need to clear any patio furniture from your yard and mark your plants, ponds and sprinkler system.
Talking With Your Family and Neighbors
A roof replacement project can be very loud, dirty and disruptive. As one of the top roofing contractors in the country, we highly recommend talking to your family and neighbors, and warning them about the project so that they know what to expect. You should also keep all of your pets indoors for the duration of the project.
Preparing the Interior
Your roofer won’t work inside your home, but you still need to prepare the interior. A roof replacement will cause your home to vibrate. You will have to clear your attic of any fragile or sentimental items, and you will need to remove all your wall decor. Make sure that your breakables aren’t touching each other or the wall. You will also have to lay down tarps in your attic and garage.
