Maintenance & Repair
Age and environmental factors can wreak havoc on your roof. Ignoring problems for too long can cause headaches down the road. Whether you're experiencing leaks or dealing with storm damage, start with a free inspection today!
Getting a brand new roof can be an exciting experience. Kids and pets may watch in awe as they observe roofers ripping, tearing, hauling, and nailing – they may even want to sneak as close as possible to the action. That, of course, is extremely dangerous. Once the roofing company arrives, your house is a work zone. Work zones, as you can imagine, pose unexpected hazards.
DMV Contracting prioritizes making roof replacement stress-free and seamless. However, there are major safety precautions and preparations you can make so you’re 100% ready.
10 tips to prepare for a home roof replacement
Loud noises coming from the home may increase anxiety or disturb sleep habits. While it may be exciting to watch from a safe distance, work zones are extremely unsafe for children and pets.
Contractors need quick access to their tools and trucks throughout the day. They need a place to load shingles and debris. You’ll want to keep your vehicles a safe distance from this area until work is completed.
You should also keep your garage doors closed during construction to keep out dust and debris.
The vibrations from hammers and machinery on your roof may travel through some walls of your home, especially if repairs to the existing deck are needed.
- Walk through the rooms on the level below your roof. Consider any pictures or other items that are hanging from your ceiling or walls.
- As a precaution, remove any decorations that aren’t permanently secured with screws.
During a roof replacement, numerous installers will be walking on your roof, pounding it with hammers. Dust or small debris will fall in attic spaces during a new roof installation. You can keep personal items cleaner by covering them with old sheets or drop cloths until the roofing company is finished. Be prepared to do some light vacuuming in these areas after construction is complete.
A shed or garage is the best place to store outside items like grills, patio furniture, lawn ornaments, and potted plants while your new roof is installed. If you don’t have on-site storage, you may want to put these items together in an area of the yard that is a safe distance from the work zone.
Any tree branches that hang low near your roof will need to be trimmed before your contractor can begin work.
Your contractor should use drop cloths to protect plants and grass in the immediate perimeter of your home, but you need to cut grass a day before construction begins.
Your contractors will need access to electrical outlets while they are working. Exterior outlets are preferred, but if your home does not have any, a garage outlet is the second-best choice.
If you have any antennas or satellite dishes located on or very near your roof, you’ll want to have them removed. Call your cable or satellite provider to make arrangements before roof work begins.
Let your neighbors know about the planned work. Give them an anticipated timeframe for the duration. They will thank you! This will give them an opportunity to adjust their schedules and situations so that they can be most comfortable while the work is going on.
Construction at your home can create unexpected obstacles. Extension cords or other construction equipment that isn’t normally there offer some fine opportunities to really hurt yourself. Stay extra alert during this time to prevent avoidable injuries.
