So, you’ve chosen your roofer, signed the contract and scheduled a start date for your roof replacement. Congratulations—the hard parts are over. However, there are still a few things you need to do to prepare your home and family for the work ahead. In today’s post, the roofing contractors at Vertex Roofing Contractors Inc. share tips on how to prepare your home for roof installation.
Yard and Landscaping
Most of the work will be done outdoors, so you need to clear as much free space as your yard will allow. Prepare your yard as soon as you have a confirmed installation date.
Clear as much space in the yard as you can by setting aside things that can be moved such as yard playsets and inflatable pools. Prepare tarpaulins or other type of protective covering for the landscaping. Ask a local arborist or landscaper for recommendations on the kind of material that will best protect your plants while the roof replacement is underway.
Roof installation creates a lot of noise, dust and waste material, which may be disruptive to the members of your household. You may want to make arrangements for alternative accommodation before installation begins, perhaps with friends or family or at a nearby hotel. Protect furniture, electronics and other things in your home with dust covers.
Installation noise and the presence of strangers in the house can be disturbing to pets. Consider moving your pet to a kennel or a friend’s house while the work is underway.
