It is finally time for you to get a new roof installation and you have selected a contractor, you have the roofing material and you know what work needs to be done. A common question that we often get towards the start of a job is how a homeowner can prepare for their upcoming roofing job. Here are some top considerations you can make about preparation before you have people arriving on-site to work on your roof:
Make Sure Your Roof is Accessible From As Many Sides As Possible
Work on your roof and moving shingles and roofing materials up to your roof is often easier when the ladder can get as close to your roof as possible. With proper access to the driveway and through your yard, it can be easier to perform work and move building materials up your roof.
Nail guns, coordinating work, hammers and more are going to be making noise on the day of your roofing job. Consider leaving the area before work gets started and don’t plan on sleeping in the day that the work begins!
Keep Kids And Pets Indoors And Have a Plan For The Day
Keeping kids and pets safe can often mean keeping them away from the job site. Although there is a very low risk of falling items during the roofing job, making sure that kids and pets aren’t outside during the process can prevent accidents.
It Can Be a Dirty Process
Cleaning up is best done at the end of any roofing job. It is bound to generate some dust and debris for your property and all the dust and debris from the job will be removed at the end of the time that the roofers are present. Be sure to cut off power to your roofing vent fans so that you can cut down on dust inside the home.
Keep some of these top considerations in mind as you are preparing for your roofing job at home or at work!
