A roof replacement is one of the biggest home improvement projects you can undertake. You should know what to expect and how to prepare for this major project. In today’s article, NC Rebuild, Inc., a trusted roofing contractor, will explain everything you need to know about getting your home ready for a new roof.
Preparing Your Yard
You should expect a lot of foot traffic in your yard during the roof installation. In addition, nails, debris and old shingles will fall off your roof and land in your yard while the roofers are working. It’s also likely that they will park a dumpster in your driveway to clean up all the debris after work is done. Prepare your yard by putting all toys and patio furniture away. You also need to clear the garden and protect your plants. Lastly, clear your vehicles from the driveway and garage.
Preparing Your House
Installing a new roof will cause vibrations throughout your entire house. As an expert in residential roof repair and replacement, we recommend clearing the attic and protecting the attic floor with tarps. You should also remove your wall decor and protect our fragile items. Falling roof debris can also scratch your windows, so we recommend protecting them with wooden boards.
Preparing Your Family and Neighbors
You should talk to your neighbors and warn them about your upcoming roof replacement. They need to know because the increased noise and activity in your home might negatively affect them. You should also take care of your young children by having them stay at a relative’s place for the duration of the project. We also recommend having your pet stay at a kennel service.
