Congratulations! You have just purchased a new roof, what’s next? A roof replacement is a smart investment into the safety, structure, and long-term maintenance of your beloved home. The best way to ensure the replacement job goes as smoothly as possible is to prepare. Here are Trinity Roofing’s top four tips to prepare for the installation of your roof.
- Access to Your Home
The construction team must have uninterrupted access to your yard space. Before the installation commences, relocate any motor vehicles in the driveway or surrounding area away from the installation site to prevent damage. The last thing you want is for your means of transportation to be damaged during the replacement of your roof.
- Inform Your Neighbors
Although you may be prepared for the inconveniences of your roofing project, such as increases in noise and traffic, your neighbors may not be. Do them the courtesy of notifying them of the planned work and expected timeframe. This gives them the chance to make adjustments to their schedules.
- Remove Wall Decorations
The vibrations from the equipment used for your roof replacement have the potential to travel through your home’s walls. Be proactive by walking through the level below your roof to remove nonpermanent decorations, such as pictures or other items hanging from the walls or ceiling. Taking precautions ensures the safety of your hard-earned personal belongings.
- Secure Your Windows
As mentioned above, the roof replacement process includes some vibrations. These vibrations, as well as debris, can damage your windows. To protect your windows, you can board them up with plywood for the duration of the installation.
