Roof installation and replacement is a time-consuming and complex project that demands proper planning. When your roof is in good condition, you have peace of mind amid bad weather, ensuring your possessions and family are secure. C&C Plastering is your perfect companion when you need to replace or install a new roof. Here are 5 tips to help you prepare for roof installation or replacement.
1. Consider Your Pets and Family
Installing a new roof is a noisy project. Before embarking on the project, consider how your family and pets will handle the loud noises. For instance, if your dog can't stand storms, take them to a haven such as a pet daycare center and pick them up in the evening for the entire period of the project. For your family, you can plan the repairs or installation when schools are closed and send them for a holiday. Alternatively, you can explain to your kids what will happen and prepare them for the changes.
2. Remove Any Items on the Roof
As part of the preparation for roof installation and replacement, remove antennas or satellite dishes on the roof and store them safely. If you have challenges removing the satellite dishes, contact your service provider to ensure they remove and reset them as required. Your roofing contractor can help remove wires and cables clamped to the roof.
3. Prune Trees and Trim the Grass
Tall grass and extended branches can limit visibility on your compound and hinder your contractor from doing their work. Similarly, screws, nails, and other sharp objects can fall on the grass, becoming potential hazards to the workers and your family. Cutting the grass ensures the cleanup exercise after project completion is hassle-free.
4. Inform Your Neighbors
The roof installation project may cause disruptions on the property line. The project will produce extra noise and bring more vehicles into the neighborhood. Also, debris may spill over to your neighbors. Before the project starts, inform your neighbors to know what to expect.
5. Pick the Right Contractor
The success of the roof installation or replacement project relies on the choice of the contractor. Ensure the contractor has experience of installing your desired roof. For instance, some roofing contractors may be excellent at installing shingles but not concrete tiles. Ask the right questions and hire a professional roofing contractor for your project. Don't sacrifice quality based on price.
