Having a new roof installed is a sizable undertaking, one that you should prepare for in advance to keep stress and disruption to a minimum. Once you’ve carefully mapped out all the details with your roofer, the next step is to prepare your home for the installation itself. To help you and your household get ready for the big day, here are a few practical tips that will help ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.
Make Arrangements for Pets and Small Children
A construction job is no place for little kids and furry friends as it can be very noisy and messy, not to mention dangerous. Keep your pets indoors and make sure they have access to their crate, and supply them with comforting toys. You should also arrange for your young children to be someplace else while the roof installation is underway.
Clear Your Driveway
Before the installation team arrives, be sure to park your cars a safe distance away from your house. We recommend that you do this the night before. If you wait until the morning of the installation itself, your car might get trapped as workers come to drop off the materials. Even if you have a garage to park your car in, we still suggest that you park it away from the work area because debris might fall from the roof as the workers perform the installation.
Remove Wall Decor
The vibrations from hammering can knock wall hangings and other decorations off your walls so be sure to store them somewhere else. Shelves that aren’t securely fastened to the wall should also be moved temporarily.
