You can improve your home’s protection from extreme weather conditions as well as its curb appeal by replacing your roof. It can also help you avoid costly water damage repairs. As with any big home improvement, you must ensure that your home is ready before beginning the replacement process.
Make Sure Your Is Roof Accessible
Roofers will require access to your roof to conduct the replacement. Remember that removing an old roof and installing a new one can take up a lot of room. To safeguard your outside furniture and items from debris, clear your driveways and walkways before your contractor arrives. Place your vehicles as far away from the driveway as feasible. During construction, you can also cover your patio furniture with a tarp or plastic cover.
Take Items Out of Your Attic
Roofing installation can result in a lot of dust and debris. Make a point of moving precious objects in your attic and storing them somewhere safe while the roof is being replaced. If you can’t move big or bulky goods, cover them with a plastic cover. Professional roofers like Pritchett Bros will do everything possible to keep the jobsite as clean as possible.
Protect Your Furniture and Other Home Items
It is possible for heavy construction, such as roof installation, to generate intense vibrations, which can cause items that are hanging on the wall to fall off. Remove any decorations, photos and mirrors that are currently hanging on your walls before you begin the project. Remove the glass scones from the light fixtures on your upper floors if possible.
Prepare Your Exterior
Accidents and flat tires can be caused by falling roofing nails. After the installation, reputable roofers will carefully clean your property. To remove loose nails, they commonly utilize strong magnets and rolling equipment. Cut the grass before the installation to make cleanup easier.
