Are you preparing to get a roof replacement? If so, congratulations! A new roof will bring you comfort that your home is being properly protected and you won’t have to stress about your roof giving you issues for the years to come. Before the roof installers arrive, there are some steps that should be taken to set your installation up for success. Here’s how to effectively prepare for your roof installation.
- Remove Fragile Items – When preparing for any kind of home improvement, you should always remove fragile items. This includes items in your attic and wall hangings. Roof installation includes a lot of impact on your roof, which can disrupt walls and result in items falling down.
- Relocate Vehicles – During your roof installation there is a high risk of materials falling off the roof. It’s important to relocate your vehicles from your driveway to either your garage or a surrounding street to avoid the risk of damage.
- Clear Surrounding Outdoor Areas – In addition to removing your vehicle, you’ll also want to remove any other outdoor items you have stored. Remove any bikes, yard equipment, outdoor seating, grills, etc. to ensure your items don’t get damaged from roof debris.
- Who Should Be There? – At the time of installation, it’s important for a homeowner to be present in case issues or questions arise. Additionally, it’s important that children and pets remain inside at the time of your roof installation to ensure their safety.
