If you’ve decided to get a roof replacement, then it’s not really something that happens immediately and with no preparation. In fact, there are steps that you need to take in order to get ready for this process, so make sure you don’t jump into this big roofing job with no research ahead of time!
What to Do Before a Roof Replacement Job
“You’ve put time into researching designs and weighing costs, and now it’s time to install your residential roof replacement.” Before the job begins, though, there are some steps that you need to take to prepare. For example, you want to make sure to “clear access to the working space” whether that may be (likely outdoors and around the exterior). Roofers will need to be moving freely around this area, transporting equipment, etc. and could be impeded by a messy outside space. Also, if you want to protect your own yard and property (such as an outdoor air conditioner), then take care to protect it from the work that will be done.
As with any roofing job, a roof replacement will come with a lot of garbage, scraps, and debris. Hopefully, your chosen roofing company with bring some way to manage and dispose of all this trash themselves, such as a dumpster that they can align with the house. Again, though, this is something that you will have to make room for so that it can be easily accessed.
The roof isn’t the only place that these workers may need to access. The attic is part of your roofing system, after all, and those doing the replacement might have to go in there to complete parts of the job. Ensure that it’s clean and clear enough for them to get in and move around and, of course, help them to find the attic in the first place.
