A roof replacement is one of the biggest investments you can make for your home, so it’s important to get it right. In today’s article, TEO Construction, one of the top roofing companies in our local area, walks you through the process involved in a typical roof replacement so you know what to expect.
Before the Roof Replacement
Your roofing contractor might deliver a dumpster to your home ahead of time, which they will use for debris disposal. If they plan to recycle your old asphalt shingles, they may bring two dumpsters. They’ll likely deliver your new asphalt shingles a few days before the roof replacement begins. These shingles may need to be stored in the driveway, so you may need to move your car. We recommend asking your contractor for details.
During the Roof Replacement
As one of the most experienced roofing contractors in our area, we recommend storing outdoor furniture and arranging for your pets to be contained in a safe area on roof replacement day. You should also take down any picture frames or other wall decor, as there will be lots of vibration during the project that could dislodge items from the walls. You should also protect your landscape by covering your shrubbery and flowers. A roof replacement is noisy and distracting, so you need to be prepared. You may want to give your neighbors a heads up about when the roof replacement will take place.
After the Roof Replacement
Your roofing contractor should perform a final walk-through with you once the work is complete and will go over what type of maintenance your new roof needs. Before leaving, the contractor will clean your yard and remove any loose nails or debris. The cleaning method used by roofing contractors varies depending on their available equipment or preferences. Talk to your contractor about their specific cleanup process before the roof replacement begins.
