If your roof has reached the end of its lifespan, has water leaks, or severe storm damage, then it’s probably the time for your home to find a new roof. Roof replacement is an unquestionable method for preserving the value of your home and it’s best tackled with the help of professional roofing contractors. Granted, they’ll do most of the work—from removing the old roof to cleaning up after the job is completed—but there are still several useful things you can do that can speed up the installation process.
Clear the Attic
This includes removing valuables in the hallway leading to the attic, the room directly beneath the roof. Store your sentimental items in a separate storage bin or the basement to avoid accidental damage. You can also drape the floor with a protective sheet to avoid collecting paint stains.
Cut Your Grass Short
Nothing can get simpler than this. Cutting grass seems like an irrelevant task to incorporate in the preparation for roof repair or replacement, but it’s actually an incredibly thoughtful way to ease the work of your trusted roof specialists. Shorter grass makes it easier to locate lost nails or staples during the installation and provides better access when cleaning up leftover debris.
Move Plants And Lawn Furniture
Roofing contractors will need to walk around to access the roof from different angles. Ensuring that your patio and garden are free from statues, potted plants, water fountains, and other wandering elements that can obstruct the paths is a responsible way to avoid accidents that can harm the specialists working in your home’s premises.
Talk to Your Neighbors
If you have the time to give your neighbors a heads up that you’ll be doing a roof replacement, do it. The installation process can be excessively noisy, and there’s a possibility of shingles or nails dropping into their yards accidentally. Warn them ahead of time to avoid a commotion.
