Preparing for your new roof

One of the best investments you can make in your home is replacing your roof. A new roof will offer peace of mind, increase the value of your home, and offer years of protection against the elements.

As you prepare for your new roof system, there are a few things you can do to make sure the job gets done as smoothly as possible.

Choose the right contractor

Although hiring a contractor does not guarantee you're dealing with a professional, it can ensure you're at least dealing with someone in the community. Local connections, including the use of social media, come with the added benefit of word of mouth referrals. These direct contact referrals are a great way to ensure you have the right company in mind. Ensure that their address is permanent along with their telephone numbers, and fax numbers. Their home office can also provide insight on where they are conducting daily business. Ask where their company office is out of. Do they have an actual brick and mortar office in the area? A local office establishes trust and commitment to their client. A good contractor will happily show you their past work, certifications and offer referrals if requested.

Prepare the space

On installation day the roofing crew will have already delivered materials in preparation for the work needed. You may be asked to clear any cars from the driveway or surrounding area to make room for a dumpster. There's usually a lot of waste when removing a roof. In general, anything surrounding the immediate area of the home may encounter roof waste. Toys and patio furniture are best put in another area while the crew is working. If you can do so, cutting your grass to a short length will help during the cleanup process. Upon completion of your roof, we utilize special tools to ensure we leave the area just as it was found.

Family and pets

Roofing work is anything but quiet. Pets and family that may be sensitive to noise will appreciate any arrangements made on their behalf before work begins. Equally as important the area where pets may roam can become hazardous while the roofing crew is on site. Your neighbors may also appreciate prior notice as your roof project takes place.

Interior walls

Mirrors and frames upon a wall can shift around with a new roof installation. Consider removing anything from the walls that may become detached and loose. This is a good time to bring in any houseplants or furniture from the outside as well.
