Preparing your home before a roofing project can help ensure a smooth, stress-free experience. In this article, storm damage specialist Guardian Home Improvements discusses a few things that you can expect prior to the start of your roofing job. We also share some tips on how you can prepare your home for a major roofing project.

Managing Your Expectations

Any home improvement project begins with a consultation. During this meeting with your contractor, they’ll conduct a thorough inspection of your roof so that they can assess the current condition of your system and identify any problem areas. They will likely take some measurements and discuss your roofing options. If you have any questions about their recommendations, don’t hesitate to ask.

Don’t forget to inform them about any issues that your roof has encountered previously, as well as past roof repair jobs. This information can help them identify or anticipate potential problem areas, enabling them to create an effective solution for your roofing needs.

Preparing Your Home

Before the project begins, there are a few things you can do around your home to prepare. Taking care of these things will help the project run more smoothly:

  1. Move vehicles, bikes and other items away from the workspace. Ask the contractor about the specific areas covered in their work zone. This way, you can keep those spaces clear of any obstructions.

  2. If you have furniture in your yard, deck or balcony, you might want to place them in storage while the roof work is underway. Potted plants and other lawn ornaments should also be stored inside.

  3. Make arrangements for your kids and pets throughout the roofing project to ensure their comfort and safety. Keep in mind that roof work is noisy and can be disruptive.
