Tips for Preparing Your Home for a New Roof
A new roof is an exciting project because it completely transforms the appearance of your home. However, there are certain preparations you must make before the roofers come. The video provides tips on what you must do.
The roofers may make an early start, especially in the summer, to avoid the heat. Prepare for this as they’ll need access to your backyard. Remove or cover valuable items in your attic to protect them. Move all your cars out of your driveway as the roofing team will need the space to remove the material and equipment. A dump truck will also be placed there to take away the rubbish.
If you have any outdoor furniture, relocate it away from your house as the roof experts will tear away old shingles and toss them to the ground. The workers will place tarps to cover your plants and windows, but the onus of removing other items is on you. Also, keep children and pets away. Be careful when walking around your house as there will be nails and debris. Let your neighbors know you’re having construction going on so they can prepare for it.
Follow these tips to make the roofing process simpler and safer. To learn more, consult the video we’ve linked above.
