No one wants to hear that it’s time to get your roof replaced. If it has been 20 years since yours was last installed, or if you see that several of your neighbors are getting a new roof, your turn may be coming. As you make the arrangements to have your roof replaced, there is more than just finding the right roofing company to get the job done. Big Ike’s Roofing, Co is here to share some tips that can help you get your home ready for a roof replacement.
Clear the Perimeter of Your Home when Replacing Your Roof
To get a roof replaced, the old one has to come off first. This process is one that can get messy. If the perimeter of your home isn’t prepared for it, you could end up having things sustain damage in the process. If you have trees and shrubs near your home, you will want to cover them to keep the debris from falling down in them. Also, if you store grills or patio furniture around your home or on a deck off the back of your house, they will need to be removed so that the debris from the old roof doesn’t cause any damage.
Make Room in the Driveway While Roof is Replaced
There will likely be a large dumpster that is parked in your driveway for a day or two to collect the old roof debris. You will need to clear our your driveway to make room for the crew as well as this dumpster that is sure to be there.
Being Home While Roof is Replaced? Expect Loud Noises & Vibrations!
Not only removing the old roof, but installed the new one will come with lots of vibrations from the equipment used to do so. You should remove anything from your walls that could potentially fall off the walls during this process. You may want to simply remove them for the next coming days until the new roof is complete. Because of these vibrations, you may also see that there is a significant amount of dust and sawdust that falls in your attic. If you use this space for storage, make sure it is all covered.
Can You Live in a House While the Roof is Being Replaced?
If you have any pets or small children that are easily upset because of loud noises, you may need to make arrangements for them to stay elsewhere during the roof replacement process. There isn’t any way to diminish the amount of noise that will be present when construction is underway. You may have other family members or a neighbor that is willing to help you out with your young ones or pets.
