Your roof experiences plenty of wear and tear over its lifetime, as keeping your home safe from the elements is a full-time job. Everything from the type of roofing material, when it was installed, and how well the roofing contractors installed it all have a significant impact on your roof’s viability. When it comes time to replace your roof, you need to assess your home and get ready for the contractors to go through and perform the installation. Here are some of the essential tips you need to know before you start replacing your roof.
Choose The Right Roofing Contractor
Now that you have decided that the time has come to replace your roof, you need to find a contractor you can trust to give you a roof that can last upwards of 20 years or more. The right roofing contractor can help identify potential water damage on your roofing deck, understand the building codes that must be followed in your area, and help you know the average costs of a roof replacement.
Choosing a roofing contractor like Elegant Exteriors, LLC means that you’ve selected an experienced team that knows how to install a new roof quickly and efficiently. We help our clients pick the right materials for their home roof repair and provide them with a long-lasting roofing solution.
Get The Area Around Your Home Ready
Before the new roofing installation can begin, the roofing contractors may have a dumpster delivered to your home before they arrive. They’ll utilize it throughout the installation for the old layer of shingles and keep them out of the way. In some cases, you can utilize roofing shingle recycling programs to repurpose your old shingles and use them for future use.
Your new shingles will also be delivered to your home in the days leading up to the installation. Coordinating with your contractor about any cars that need to be moved to provide the team room to store the materials and get to work is crucial.
What To Do On Day One Of The Project
With any home improvement project, you want to ensure that the work area and everything around it are ready to go once the team shows up. That includes checking with the team if they need you to keep your pets inside and away from the workspace, protecting any statues or garden pieces, and keeping backyard gates open so your contractors can get in and out of the yard with ease.
The Final Day And Beyond
Part of the final steps you take during the installation process consists of walking the perimeter of your home and inspecting the work done to your roof, looking for any potential issues. You can also take this time to check the landscape, gutters, and driveway for debris that could prove problematic if left unattended. Ask questions about the installation and ensure you have hard copies of the building permit, contract, insurance policy, and manufacturer’s warranty to cover all of your bases.
