Tips for Preparing Your Indianapolis Home for a Roof Replacement
It is the job of the roofing contractor to take care of your roof replacement. However, it is the job of the homeowner to take steps to get your household prepared for this same job.
The entire process will seem much less daunting if you manage to do some planning ahead. This makes it easier for everyone involved and reduces your stress level during the project.
What You Need to Know About Roof Replacement
So, you’re about to start roofing and need to be prepared. Here are some things you may not have even thought about yet!
- Plan out your parking. It’s never a good idea to park near where falling debris will be. Plus, you’ll want to have the opportunity to check for roofing nails before driving into the driveway so you can save your tires. Finally, it’s generally good practice to leave a clear path for your roofers to be able to access your home without obstructions.
- Make arrangements for kids, seniors, and pets who reside in your household. The work will be loud and this can cause elevated anxiety levels in children, seniors, and pets. Also, it is extremely important to keep away from work zones and that can be a bigger challenge for kids and pets.
- Don’t forget the wall décor. Paintings hanging on the wall or even shelves with decorative pieces are likely to feel the vibrations. Not taking the time to move these items could cost you. Even those items that don’t have monetary value probably hold sentimental value so don’t take the risk.
