The success of your roof replacement project doesn’t only depend on picking the right roofing material and selecting the best contractor for the job. To make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible, you should focus your efforts on preparing your home exterior days before the installation team arrives at your doorstep.
Read on as we share helpful tips to protect your garden, lawn and home exterior before the pros get to work on your roof.
Clear the Driveway
Allow as much available space outside your home as possible for the roofers to place their tools, equipment, roofing materials and the dumpster that will be used to collect tear-off debris. Your driveway, in particular, may be used as their staging area. Relocate your car to protect it from damage.
Mow the Lawn
It is not uncommon for roofing companies to do post-installation cleanups. For example, the pros go around your home to pick up stray nails and other scattered debris. Mowing your lawn before they start the roof replacement will help to make the search easier.
Protect Your Garden
Discuss with your contractor anything that might need special protection. Consider asking for additional plastic coverings, especially if you have flower beds or newly planted foliage. Hold off on planting annual plants until next year.
Check nearby trees if their branches are almost touching your roof and siding. If they do, have them cut down by a local arborist in preparation for the roof replacement. The pros can perform their roofing tasks smoothly when tree branches and leaves are not in the way.
