If you are getting a roof replacement, you are likely wondering how you can best prepare for your roof installation. Proper preparation for your roof replacement is important to ensure your roof installation process goes smoothly and efficiently. Here are the top ways to prepare for your roofing installation.
- Protect Valuables – If you have an attic in your home, it’s a good idea to protect any valuables you may be storing to ensure that nothing gets damaged. You can do this by simply removing the items or covering your belongings with a sheet to protect from debris.
- Take Down Wall Hangings – A roof installation involves a lot of banging and disruption within your home. It’s a good idea to remove any wall hanging, picture frames, or decor to ensure nothing falls and gets broken due to rattling of the walls.
- Clear Surrounding Areas Outside – Since the area of work is outside of your home, you should clear the surrounding areas of your home. This includes removing vehicles from the driveway, bikes and toys relocated, patio furniture covered or relocated, and lawn mowers stowed. This will clear the area for workers to work efficiently and ensure your items don’t get damaged.
- Who Should Be There – Our priority is to complete your roof installation as safe as possible. At the time of installation, the homeowner should be present, and it is encouraged that pets and children remain indoors and away from the area of work. During a roof installation falling objects may occur, so having pets and children cleared of the area will ensure their safety.
