A residential roofing replacement project does not only impact your home, it can also affect your everyday life. For instance, a common question among homeowners is whether they should stay in their homes or move out for the time being.
If you’ll mostly be at work while the roofers are working, finding alternative lodging may not be necessary. You won’t be bothered by the noise and dust from the construction, so you’ll likely deal with minimal interruption. But if you mostly stay or work at home, it might be best to stay somewhere else instead.
Whether you decide to stay or move out, here are some tips from Cantrell Roofing, LLC that’ll prepare you and your home for the roof replacement project.
Ensure Your Belongings Are Protected
From your outdoor furniture to your landscaping, make sure that everything near the work area is sufficiently protected. Your furniture can be moved inside your home, so it won’t get damaged by objects that might potentially fall from your roof. As for your landscaping, roof maintenance providers typically cover the outdoor areas with tarps. This makes it easier for them to collect stray nails and other debris.
Keep Your Car Away From the Work Area
Apart from your personal belongings, ensure that no car is parked near the work area. Debris could easily fall from the roof at any time.
Make Sure Your Kids and Pets Are Safe
Designate areas where your kids can play, and let them know why the work area is off-limits to them. If you have toddlers or young kids at home, it would be best to have someone watch over them as well. If you have pets, you might want to keep them in a quiet room for the meantime. Apart from keeping them away from distressing noise, this will also prevent them from getting in the way of the workers.
