What-to-Expect-During-a-Roof-Replacement-Project-(And-How-to-Prepare)

Are you replacing your roof? It can be a daunting prospect for property owners, but don’t worry. With a little preparation and know-how, you’ll know exactly what to expect and how to prepare for your roof replacement project.

Do your homework

Roof replacement can be a significant investment in your property. That’s why it’s important to pick the right contractor and the best quality materials. Knowing what you want out of the project before diving in shows you’re prepared. This way you have the right expectations from your contractor and you can get the most accurate roofing estimate possible.

Prepare the inside and out

Heavy construction on either commercial or residential properties is a big task. Ensure it runs smoothly by preparing your home accordingly. Roof installation can cause strong vibrations, so make sure you move mirrors and photo frames away from walls. Prep the outside of your property by protecting the landscape from dust and debris with tarp or plastic. Protect loft stored items especially.

Tell your neighbours

Be the neighbour we all want next door and give everybody a heads up. Just a polite warning that there might be a bit more noise for a few days. Besides, it could be in their interest. New roofs and replacement roofing can also boost your property’s value – which inadvertently means it boosts those around you as well.

Clean up afterwards

With the roof replacement project completed, you’ll understandably be over the moon. However, now is not quite the right time to celebrate. Make sure your contractors do a good clean up job before you pop open a bottle of bubbly. This aftercare is a professional step that shouldn’t be skipped. They can inspect your new roof, fix repairs and clear up any construction debris.
