How to Prepare Yourself and Your Home for a Roofing Installation

Getting a new roof is exciting for families. As with any large home improvement/upgrade, everyone is eager to see the transformation. Soon, the top of your home will be looking brand new!  While hiring a professional roofing company such as Red Oak Exteriors removes the stress from your roof installation process, it is still good to do some preparations. Many households have pets and children that need to be kept safe during a roofing job. That is why we at Red Oak Exteriors have come up with a guide to help you prepare for your home roofing project,  so read on.

Make Sure your Vehicles are at a Distance When Roofing Installation Services Providers Arrive

Roofing involves heavy materials and equipment that can cause damage to your vehicle. Not to mention, a big truck or SUV parked in front of the home can make it difficult for roofing installation services providers to do our work efficiently. So, if you have a garage, it is suggested that you keep the vehicles and other fragile yard items in there during the roofing project for your vehicle’s safety and opening up space for the equipment and materials. If you don’t have a garage, park your vehicle away from the job site; you will also be freeing up a lot of space for roofing materials that need to be stored short term on your property.

Take Care of your Kids and Pets During the Roof Installation Project

Roof installation can get noisy for your kids and pets. If you have a dog or a cat that gets scared of loud noises, you might want to send your pet to a friend or family member until the project is finished. For kids that are old enough, be sure to explain that the areas around your house are not safe during the roofing project due to the risk of injury. If you have small kids in your home, it might be a good idea to have them stay with a  family member home for a few days until the roofing job is complete.

Inform your Neighbors Before the Arrival of the Roofing Company

Roof installation is an exciting project for you, but it can be a loud surprise for your neighbors. Remember that your neighbors also have kids and pets and as a good neighbor, you would want to make sure their kids, pets, and property are safe while you get your new roof installation. It’s always a good idea to inform your neighbors before the installation company arrives to start the project. While our roof installation team is friendly and safe, making sure unnecessary debris isn’t flying around, there is still a possibility that debris could fall into your neighbor’s yard during the process.

Now that you know what to do to prepare for a roof installation project, all you have to do is get in touch with us and get your new roof installed.
