Getting Ready for a Roof Replacement

Our goal is always to meet the unique needs of each client by providing top-quality roofing services. Once you’ve made the decision to install a new roof, we believe that taking the time to get the inside of your home ready for a roof replacement is essential.

Here are a few things to keep in mind if you are replacing your roof.

Follow These Guidelines

#1 Remove Pictures, Mirrors & Wall Décor
Adding a new roof generally means that the walls of the house will shake. Therefore, keeping all of your fragile items protected is critical when getting your home ready for a new roof. Taking the time to remove pictures, mirrors, and other fragile items is always a good idea to limit the chance of damages. You may also want to remove wall shelving for additional protection.

#2 Protect Your Garage
You will also need to consider removing items from your garage if it isn’t insulated. Debris can easily fall from the ceiling causing damages to your items or vehicles. Removing or covering all of these items will save you a lot of stress and money.

#3 Cover Items in the Attic
Dust and small debris can fall in the attic due to the constant pounding of hammers on your roof. You can keep your personal items clean by using old sheets or drop cloths to protect them. Even after taking this step you may need to do some vacuuming in your attic once the installation is complete.

#4 Prune Trees & Shrubs

Taking the extra time to prune trees and shrubs that are close to your home is a great way to make it easier for a contractor to work on your roof. Mowing the grass before the construction begins will also make cleanup faster and prevent fallen debris from getting lost in your lawn.
