One of the top questions we get from customers is: “What should I do when the roofers are here?”
It’s a great question, because for the time period that we’re working, your home is actually a construction site.
Here’s some tips to help you prepare and prevent any damage or disturbances:
- Remove all vehicles, potted plants, decorations, patio furniture, wood piles, and other items from the perimeter of the building. We don’t want to risk any harm from equipment or falling debris!
- It’s helpful to make sure the work crew will have driveway access and workspace in the yard.
- Children and pets should be kept indoors or, preferably, off the job site. Besides safety concerns, they may be disturbed by the loud noises and disruptions.
- Protect any valuables in your attic or rooms directly below the roof from dust and debris: cover them with tarps and turn off roof attic fans.
- Nail guns, hammers, heavy boots and the ripping off of old roofing materials are LOUD. Be prepared for near constant noise throughout the project that may disrupt normal day-to-day activities.
- We may need you to move or remove satellite dishes and other delicate equipment during the project.
- Talk to the foreman or call us at our office any time throughout the day if you have a question or need access in or out of the building.
- Take your time going through the final inspection after work is done – we want to ensure all debris has been properly removed, your property restored to pristine condition, and that the project is complete to your satisfaction.
