Prepairing for your upcoming roof project
A roofing installation project should be a hands-off process for your family. Reputable licensed North Carolina roofers will manage all aspects of the roofing project so as to limit disruptions to the household and reduce stress. Once you have decided on which roofing material, typically, asphalt shingle or metal roof you want and have signed the contract, it’s time to put control in the roofer’s hands.
However, there are a few thing you can do to prepare for your Elon NC roofers before they arrive that will makes things go more smoothly.
Research Your Roofing Contractor
Doing your homework on your chosen contractor right from the start is key. This is the best way to ensure you will have a seamless experience. Knowing you have chosen the right roofer will give you confidence that the job will be done according to your specifications. Ask what they will do after roof installation, such as cleaning up the yard of all debris – including nails. An untidy yard riddled with roofing materials is a safety hazard for kids and pets.
Before the roofers arrive, make sure the yard is free of obstacles so the roofers can work unhindered. Remove lawn ornaments, toys, lounge chairs and anything else that could get in the way. Make sure there is a clear path from the driveway or street to the work area. Ask what they will do to protect your vegetation such as tarping the bushes directly under the roof.
All outdoor outlets should be easily accessible and functional. Be sure to move cars from the driveway so the roofers can park as close as possible to the house. This way, they can access the materials and their tools easily and quickly. If you have pets, let the roofers know to close all doors each time they leave the house, such as after using the restroom.
Indoors, there are things you can do before the roofing installation project begins. Remove all wall decorations and fragile objects from shelves. This includes framed photos, knick knacks, clocks and more. Your walls will be shaking quite a bit once the roofers get going with their hammers and roofing tools. This shaking can cause objects to fall off the walls and shelves, leading to breakage. .
Ask about the duration of the installation process so you can plan accordingly. You may want to get out of the house during that time, as roofing installation jobs are typically loud. This can disturb kids, pets, the elderly, people with sensitive hearing, and anyone who works from home.
Let your immediate neighbors know of the upcoming work so they aren’t surprised with all the noise, trucks, roofers and disruptions.
