While you might have already worked out the budget, schedule and logistics of a roofing project, you might still be wondering what you need to do on the actual replacement day. Depending on the size of your home, the project can take a day or two to finish, which leaves you the question – should you move out?
If you can bear the noise and mess, then there’s no need to leave. Your crew will isolate the work area, so it won’t affect your indoors that much. To help you prepare, follow these tips:
Secure Your Pets
Pets may not respond well to strangers working inside and outside your home. They might also find the roof replacement process stressful because of the noise. For this reason, it’s best to secure them in a safe, quiet area like the basement or take them with you for the day.
Designate Safe Areas for Children
When you plan to stay at home with your kids during your renovation roofing project, let them know about it so they can adjust accordingly. Designate areas in your home where they can safely play, and keep them from going outside while the crew is working on your roof. Debris may fall off the roof at any time, which is why it is risky to have them hang around your yard or patio.
Protect Your Landscaping
Even though certified roofers will lay down tarps or use a self-propelled roofing trailer, there’s no guarantee that they can catch all the nails, shingles and other debris before they hit the ground. It pays to do your part and move your furniture away from the work area, and use your own tarp to protect your landscaping.
