Once you've chosen a roofing contractor, bought the roofing materials, and set up a date for installation, it's time to start preparing your home for the upcoming construction. TAMKO Building Projects provides some helpful tips for preparing yourself, your family and your home for the installation of your new roof.
1. Keep your family and pets indoors. During roof installation, your home will be turned into a construction site. To protect your family and pets from dust and debris and falling objects, everyone should remain indoors or away from the construction environment. You may choose to have your children and pets stay with a friend or family member until the construction is complete. If your family chooses to stay home, ensure your children and pets stay clear of potentially dangerous areas should you need to leave the house.
2. Anticipate noise. Expect noise from drills, hammers, nail guns and other equipment during construction. If you or your family will be bothered by such noises, it's best to stay elsewhere during installation.
3. Remove your satellite dish. If you have satellite dishes mounted on your roof, you may need to move them prior to your roof installation. Talk to your contractor to see if they'd need to be removed.
4. Keep your yard and driveway clear and easily accessible. To perform a safe and proper installation of your residential roof, the contractors will need easy access to the areas closest to your home, including the yard and driveway. Remove anything that could get in the way or be damaged by dust and debris or fallen objects. Park your vehicles in the garage or away from your home, and remove any obstructions in the yard, such as lawn furniture.
Following these preparation tips for residential roof installation will help ensure the safety of your family and pets and provide the contractors will the environment they need to perform a safe, speedy and successful installation.
