The process of replacing your roof can be time-consuming and is a big investment on its own. Because of this, many homeowners hire roofing specialists to work on their home improvement projects. Their tested skills and years of experience make them wiser and a qualified voice of reason in the subject. Here are some important questions you can ask your roofer when planning a roof replacement project.
1. “Should I Stay in the House While You’re Replacing the Roof?”
The best answer is no,you should not be in the house while you’re getting a new roof. Packing your bags and departing the premises for a while are essential for the safety of your family and pets. The process can also be extremely loud and pretty clamorous, which is not good particularly for homeowners who strictly observe peacefulness when at home.
2. “How Long Does It Take to Replace the Roof?”
The larger your home, the longer period it will take to replace the roof. If you have a home that is less than 1200 square feet, the roof repair experts can take a day to work on the installation. If you have a bigger property, expect the project to carry on for a few more days.
3. “Is Covering Up My Belongings Necessary?”
Some may underestimate the amount of dirt and dust that can fall out of your old roofing structure. However, imagine the years of debris buildup stuck around the chimneys, vents or above the ceilings. Covering up your furniture and other interior belongings help you avoid damage to your possessions. You should also consider bringing down picture frames and other wall ornaments to ensure that they won’t fall off the walls during the project.
