  • Tips on How to Prepare Your Home for a New Roof

As soon as you sign on the dotted line to finalize the terms of working with a roofing contractor, expect a crew of pros to arrive at your home on the agreed-upon start date of the roof installation. To ensure a smoother, hassle-free replacement process, it is important to prepare your home beforehand.

Protecting Your Interior

This major home improvement project can be a mess, with dust and debris settling inside your home. Days before the scheduled start of the installation, be sure to cover your important valuables, including your furniture, bedding and clothing. Use large drop cloths or plastic sheets to protect the fabric. Wall hangings like art paintings, picture frames and mirrors must be removed to eliminate the risk of falling and breaking during the construction.

Protecting Your Outdoors

Every roofer in the project will have to get in and out of your property,so you have to make sure your outdoor area is free from any impediments. Move any patio furniture and potted plants to another location as these can get in the way of their access to your roof. Plus, you lessen the chances of them getting covered by debris or, worse, breaking because of falling debris. Also, wear protective clothing while outside to prevent injuries like stepping on a loose nail.

Securing Your Family

To minimize accidents, keep children and pets away from the work zone. Unless you have an accessory dwelling unit beside your property, you may have to isolate your family away from all the construction debris. After all, the safety of everyone is our priority. You can have them stay over at a relative or a close friend for a while.
