Re-roofing is one of the best investments you can make in your Orlando property. And when you hire an experienced professional contractor like Roofing Pioneers for your home roof replacement project, the experience will be as easy and stress-free as possible.
However, you may need to take a few steps to prepare your property and your family. We’ve put together some helpful tips to make sure you’ll be ready when the re-roofing crew arrives.
Clear the Work Area
The roofers will need to have easy access to your rooftop and plenty of space for all of the necessary heavy equipment, tools and re-roofing materials. Before the crew arrives, make sure no vehicles, lawn furniture, trash cans or toys are in the way.
Mark the Landscape Features
Experienced re-roofing professionals aim to avoid plants, sprinkler heads, lawn decorations and other landscape elements. However, to make the chance of accidental damage much less likely, use small flags to mark the features you want to protect.
Cut the Grass Short
Once your home re-roofing project is complete, the roofers will perform a thorough cleanup. But cutting the grass short right before the roof replacement begins, lost shingles and roofing nails will be much easier to locate.
Identify Accessible Power Outlets
The re-roofing crew may need to use powered equipment in the course of their work, and doing so may require access to an electrical outlet. If you have one outside, make sure it’s functional; if not, find an indoor outlet near a window that the roofers can use.
Protect the Inside of Your Home
The roof replacement work can create vibrations inside your home, so you’ll want to protect your valuables. Move or cover the belongings in your attic to shield them from falling dust and debris, and as a precaution, remove wall art and fragile accessories.
Make a Plan for Kids and Pets
Home re-roofing is noisy work, so if you have young children or pets, you may want to make arrangements for them to be elsewhere while the roofers are on site. If that’s not an option, keep your kids and furry friends far away from the work area.
