Do Roofers Need to Come Inside?

When you’re having work done on your property, it’s only natural you want to know what to expect. When it comes to roofing, one of the most frequently asked questions in that respect is whether or not roofers need to come inside your home.

Read on as we discuss why it matters and some of the different reasons roofers might need access to your home.

Concerns about roofers coming inside

It’s always nice to know when people will be coming inside your home. When that’s a friend or relative, it means you can have a quick tidy up to make sure everything is looking presentable. But when it’s a roofer, there’s usually a bit more a stake.

Above all else, you want to know whether they’ll need access to your home to complete their work. You wouldn’t want to have your roof repairs put on hold because roofers can’t get inside. If you know a roofer needs to come inside, you can make sure someone suitable is in to provide access.

Another issue for some customers is whether roofers will make a mess inside their home. The best advice here is to choose a roofing company that’s established and trusted in your local area. The best roofers will always treat their customers’ homes like their own and clear up any mess.

Finally, there’s the small matter of a global pandemic. While tradesmen are generally allowed inside your home, even during lockdowns, many people are still cautious of having them inside for their own safety and that of their friends and family.

So, do roofers need to come inside?

Whether or not a roofer needs to come inside depends on what exactly is wrong with your roof and what kind of work is required.

If water is leaking into your property, for example, it may help a roofer to access your roof space and see where it is coming in – in order to recommend the right, long-lasting repairs.

However, in the majority of cases, roofers can complete their work without entering your home. Once the inspection is complete and the problem has been identified, there’s generally no need to come inside your property.

Knowing what to expect

As mentioned above, there are a few scenarios where roofers might need to come inside your home. There are also times when access to your drive or the back of your property is required for materials or scaffolding, for instance.
