A roof replacement or repair job can be considered as a major task since it will surely affect your daily routine. Before the actual replacement/reparation job commences, it’s important to know what to expect; especially that most roof replacement jobs generally take a few days to be completed.
During a roof repair, you should expect a lot of mess. Of course, with workers coming to your home, putting their tools down on your property, and taking out your old roof, you can really expect a messy home.
Debris from the roof falling on your lawn or anywhere within the area surrounding your home may also be expected. You can’t be sure of the items the roof experts will see on your roof – there could be branches, leaves and other types of dirt. Naturally, they would get rid of these for you. Therefore, it’s best if your children or pets are nowhere around these areas during roof repair/replacement job.
A lot of disturbance and noise must be a part of your expectations. Prepare yourself for a lot of hammering noises and forget about having a peaceful afternoon while the roofing contractors are working on your property. Since the job will take days to be finished, you might want to consider finding another place to relax in the meantime.
Upper stories encountering vibrations due to construction disturbance should be expected. Attics or any rooms near the roof could be expected to shake a little bit while contractors are at work. Dust will fall from the ceiling so it’s best if you cover furniture items so dust won’t get into them. Removing wall hangings or hanging lamps will also be good to prevent any damages.
If you have hired a well-reputed roof repair company, you can also expect that they will clean up after the job is completed. A respectable company will respect your property and wouldn’t leave it messy and in disarray.
