How to Prepare Your Home for a Roofing Job

How To Prepare Your Home For A Roofing Job

How can you prepare your home for a major roofing job? Here are some quick tips: 

Do Your Research  

Roofers will first visit your home to inspect and measure your roof. Afterward, they’ll discuss your roofing options with you. They’ll usually recommend a roofing material that’s suited to your area’s climate. However, if you want to customize your exterior, it’d be a good idea to do your research on your preferred colors and finishes. That way, you’ll be able to consult your contractor about your home’s exterior design. 

Here’s a research tip: Find out the architectural style of your home—certain roofing materials and color combinations have been traditionally used in certain architectural styles. 

Preparing Your Home for Roofing Work 

Once you’ve finalized all the details, contractors from roofing companies should give you a rough timeline of your roofing project and discuss with you their contingency plans in case the weather doesn’t cooperate. A contractor should give you a reminder a week before the date of your roofing project.


Here’s what you can do to prepare your home:


Trim your lawn – Nails can fall onto your front lawn when your roof is removed. Trimming your lawn beforehand will make it easier for your roofers to clean up construction debris.


Remove picture frames hanging on your walls – Expect your walls to shake a bit during a roof replacement. Remove picture frames and artworks on your walls to keep them from being damaged.


Have kids and pets stay somewhere else for a while – Construction noise can be stressful to pets. Not to mention kids might get in the way of construction work. That’s why it’s best if they stay in another location until the roofing project is done.
