A roof replacement is a large investment in your property, and can be quite an ordeal without the right tools and support. To streamline the process, there are a number of steps you can take to prepare for this home improvement project.

Tips to Prepare for a Roof Replacement

Here are three tips you may want to follow to help your roof replacement go by with ease:

  • Clear affected areas: For the duration of the replacement, there will likely be a high-traffic path that contractors will use to transport tools and materials to the work zone. It’s helpful to temporarily relocate any possible obstructions that might be in the way, such as vehicles, potted plants, lawn decorations, or outdoor furniture.
  • Safeguard valuables: The tools and machinery used during a roof replacement can create vibrations within the home that can potentially dislodge wall hangings or decorations. You may want to remove fragile items from your walls to protect them from falling.
  • Consider children and pets: The sharp tools and noise of a roof replacement can create a disruptive or unsuitable environment for children and pets. Ahead of the project, it’s often best to inform children of areas of the home and yard that will be off-limits. While the replacement is underway, it’s recommended that you keep children and pets indoors, and if necessary and applicable, you may want to find arrangements for them to be away from home while the project is ongoing.
