Once you’ve chosen from a long list of roofing companies, arranged the schedule and budget, and made choices about the style, material and construction of your new roof, it’s time to get to business and carry out your plans. A re-roofing project will basically involve your entire home. This means you can expect the mess of it all to spread out to every room under a roof.
Preparing your home to minimize a post-roofing project cleanup involves some practical thinking ahead. Here’s how to keep your home neat and tidy even after a major roofing overhaul.
As the construction crew pounds and hammers away on your roof, you can expect the vibration to shake a lot of dust out of their its places. Before the first day of your roof replacement begins, get a few pieces of plastic or tarp sheets to cover up furniture and items in your home that you want to keep dust-free. This includes couches, beds and sensitive equipment like television sets and computers.
While all contractors will take extra special care not to cause any damage to any part of your home, sometimes accidents are inevitable. Do a walkthrough of your home with the foreman before the crew packs up and leaves. Make sure to examine siding boards, window frames, trim and other exterior parts carefully for any signs of stray tar stains or even scratches and dings.
If you have the right equipment, take a look at your gutters as well. Any type of roof replacement, whether it’s a commercial, residential or a church roof installation, will produce a lot of trash. Your gutters are often the first receptacles of this debris and can get clogged if they are not cleared right away. Take measures to clean them up thoroughly to prevent bigger problems in the future.
