Home remodeling or improvement projects can take over your life and take over your space. Reroofing can be a long process with loud noises, long days, and multiple vehicles around your home. It is possible to make living semi-normal in your home during a reroofing project. Here are some tips to prepare your home for a roofing company and keep your family happy while the process is happening.
How Can I Prepare For A Reroof?
Getting your home ready for a company to come in and work on it will protect them and your family. Moving furniture and sentimental items out of potential danger zones will help prevent accidents.
Other ways you can prepare for a reroofing project include:
- Let your neighbors know
- Be prepared for debris
- Clear outdoor furniture and other external elements
- Cover plants
- Plan for noise or schedule times for outings
The Day Of Your Roof Replacement
Not all roofing projects can be completed in one day, but the first day of the project will give you a good idea of what to expect. Each project will look different, but loud noises and debris are going to occur. On the day of your project, the roofing company will show up at the predetermined time and should let you know that they are there.
They will then begin to set up and work on your roof. If the project is not done by the end of the workday, the company may leave materials, vehicles, and protective gear at your home. Once your project is complete, there may be sawdust or other small debris around your home. Roofing companies should clean up after themselves, but you may still find small debris around your home.
Think About Your Pets
The loud noises that come with a roofing project can be hard for kids and pets. Many animals may get scared about unexpected noise or new people around your home. Consider taking them to a daycare facility for a few days, or having them stay with family. This will help limit the chaos in your home and take some stress off your and your pets’ minds.
Don’t Let Your Vehicles Get Blocked In
If you plan on leaving your home for any reason after the roofing company has arrived, make sure your vehicles are moved and not blocked by the work trucks before the team begins working. If they park behind you or have blocked you in, asking them to stop working so you can get your car out will just delay the project.
Move your vehicles to the street, or ask them to make sure not to block you in before they begin climbing your roof. You can also have someone come pick you up, or ask a neighbor if you can park your car in their driveway for the time being.
Stay Out Of The Way Of The Installers
In order to complete your project quickly and effectively, the roofing team will need limited distractions and obstacles. If your children are chasing the workers or running around them while they are carrying heavy materials, this could lead to injury for both parties. Staying out of the way during reroofing will help your project be completed without incident.
Staying out of the way during reroofing can be done by leaving your home just for the day and taking your kids to the zoo or a park. Living in your home during a reroof is possible, but during long days, it may be better to leave for a short amount of time. If you are going to stay in your home, make sure your kids have entertainment inside the home.
