After finding your roofers and going over the project plan, there are still a few things that you need to remember and do just before the roofers arrive.
Don’t think of them as another burden. The following will just keep your mind and house prepared for the days ahead.
How Long Will It Take
Usually, the estimated time for roof replacement is spelled out in the agreement between the homeowner and the roofing contractor. But as a general guide, installation can take around one to seven days depending on how big the roof is and the kind of roofing material to be used.
However, be open to the possibility that delays could happen despite the preparations that you have made. Some things will just become apparent the moment the roofers remove your roof like mold and pests. Improper roofing design an also be discovered by your contracted roofing company. All of these factors can add up to additional time and cost.
The cost of the replacement has been agreed on prior to the contract, so you know more or less what to expect. However, be aware of the factors that might add to the cost of the project like the ones mentioned above.
What to Do Before the Roofers Arrive
Secure your things in your attic. Cover them with a tarp to protect them from dust and debris.
Move your vehicles and lawn furniture to a safer place. This will minimize damage just in case something untoward happens while the roofers are hauling materials to your roof. It will also give them space to move around your house.
Consider finding another place to stay in the meantime. The hustle and bustle, the constant hammering and the dust and debris from the site might be intolerable to some people.
