As with most home improvement projects, a roof replacement will require careful planning. Aside from choosing the right roofing material and contractor, you have to learn about the roof replacement process itself so you can make the necessary preparations.
A Few Weeks Leading Up to Installation Day
When you’re ready to repair or replace your roof, call up family and friends to ask them for local referrals. Once you have a good list of potential roofers, run through your choices until you’re down to one. Schedule a roof inspection to determine the extent of damage. Your roofer will probably give you an estimate during this visit as well.
A Few Days Before the Roof Replacement
Installation day is almost here, and you can ask your roofers around this time about the specifics. Are they going to take the appropriate measures to protect your valuable items? Flowers, shrubbery, statues and outdoor furniture may need to be covered or moved.
Actual Roof Installation
The work has now started. You’ve probably done your preparations by now. For instance:
- Small children and pets will need to stay away from the work area for their safety. Have them stay with trusted relatives or friends in the meantime.
- You have already informed your neighbors about the work in advance as a courtesy.
- You have moved your car to a safer spot.
Your roofing company will perform a final walkthrough with you, giving you the opportunity to see if the work is satisfactory. This is also the time for post-installation cleanup, where the crew will sweep the yard for loose nails and other debris.
