As you read the articles on this website, we ask that you pay close attention to the vast nature of the work that roofers do.

How To Prepare When Getting A New Roof

Has the time come to finally replace the old roofing material on your home? If so, you'll likely need to hire a professional roofing contractor to take care of this job for you. Here are a few things that you should do to prepare when the day of the installation comes.

You'll Need To Clear Out The Space Around Your Home

There is a lot of debris that can come off your roof while the old one is being ripped off and the new one is being installed. You don't want to end up having falling debris break something that is around the perimeter of your home, such as a glass patio table or toys that belong to your kids. It is a good idea to clear out space around your home prior to having your new roof installed. This will give you some peace of mind that everything will be protected if some roofing material accidentally tumbled off the roof and comes crashing down to the ground below. 

You'll Need To Take Down Fragile Items On Your Walls

You may be surprised at the amount of hammering that takes place in order to replace your roof. If you have anything fragile in your home that is hanging on the walls, such as a mirror or glass photo frames, it is a good idea to take these things down so that they do not fall down by accident. It is a problem that can easily be avoided by simply placing the item on the floor so that it cannot fall down when the walls start shaking a little bit from the hammering.

You'll Need To Clear Your Driveway

There is going to be a lot of debris that is created by removing the old roofing material. The roofing contractor will likely order a dumpster to take these materials away, and the best place to put it is on your driveway. This means you have to move any cars that are normally parked in your driveway, and remember to move cars out of the garage so that you still have access to them while the dumpster is in place. The last thing you want to have happened is to trap your car in your garage because you forgot to move it.
