At Roofwise, we know that roofing replacement isn’t something you have done multiple times in your life. Unless you are in the habit of buying old homes and fixing them up to sell, you may only have your roof replaced once or twice. Since you are probably entering unfamiliar territory if you need to replace your roof, we thought it might be helpful to share a few tips on how to prepare for residential roofing replacement.
- Cover items stored in the attic- If you want to keep any dust that results from our roofers walking about on your roof from accumulating on your stored items, put a sheet or tarp over them.
- Take fragile items off the walls- Moving around on the roof can cause vibrations that can dislodge paintings and other artwork you have on the wall, especially if they are not securely fastened.
- Free up the driveway- We can make the project go more smoothly and quickly if we have close access to your house because you have cleared the space we need for our equipment.
- Move or cover outdoor furniture- We are very careful when removing your old roofing, but it is best if you move or cover any furniture or other outdoor belongings to safeguard them from debris.
- Keep children and pets inside- We know that both children and pets can be very curious, but a roofing jobsite isn’t safe for them. Arranging for them to be elsewhere is even better as they might be bothered by the noise.
- Ask any questions you have- We want you to be fully informed about what to expect, so we welcome your questions.
