If you plan to have your roof replaced, you’ve probably asked your local roof repair contractors the question almost everyone asks: “Do I have to move out of my home during the process?” Short answer is no, you don’t have to. Roof replacement is a short process that usually takes a mere two to three days, unless there are any major repairs needed or extreme weather that causes delays. However, keep in mind that there are a few things you should take care of during the roof replacement process.
In this post, Advanced Roofing discusses what you should take care of during the roof replacement process.
If you’ve opted to stay in your home during the roof replacement, consider securing your pets. They may find the noise that comes with replacing residential roofing systems distressing. They may also react poorly to the workers around the home. To rectify this, keep them in a quiet room such as the basement to protect them from the noise if you plan to leave home for the day. Alternatively, you can also take your pet with you.
Contractors always keep the safety of the homeowners’ children in mind but you can help by bringing your kids up to speed on what’s going to happen at home. Set extra rules and let them know which area of the home they shouldn’t enter in the meantime. Give them safe spaces in the house to play in and tell them not to play outside for now to keep them away from falling debris, tools, nails and other hazards.
Whether it’s a residential or commercial flat roof repair, roofers will always recommend finding an alternative parking spot for your car during the process. Consider parking on the curb. Your roofers also need a place to park their van; it’s a good idea to give them the best spot to make the job easier.
