Investing in a new composite shingle roof is a great decision, as it improves the aesthetics and value of your property. At the same time, you get the assurance that the new technology in the roofing materials will make your roof last longer than usual.
To ensure that the installation process goes without a hitch, you should prepare for this important day. Follow these tips to get ready for composite shingle roof installation:
Keep your children and pets away
Your children and pets might get curious to take a closer look at the installation process, as it looks extremely interesting. However, due to the loud noise and presence of various materials, the work zone tends to be unsafe for your children and pets.
If your children are old enough to understand, you should tell them why they should stay away from the work zone. You can also take your pets to a nearby daycare center until the installation project is complete. Leave your children and pets with your family members or friends are another option.
Inform your neighbors
As a good homeowner, you should inform your neighbors about the roof installation. Sometimes, they may be excited to see the roof installation. If your neighbors have children or pets, your information will help them immensely. Also, they may be able to move to their vehicles, giving more working space to your roofing contractors.
Remove valuables from your attic
As the attic is below your roof, it is important that you remove all the valuables from this location. Regardless of the experience of your roofing contractors, there will always be some debris or dust which makes their way to your attic.
Move any valuables, such as family heirlooms to a spot away from the work zone. If some of them are extremely heavy place a plastic sheet or drop cloth, for protection against debris and dust.
Take down any wall decorations
Due to the use of machinery and hammers, the vibrations tend to travel down to the walls. The chances are higher when the roofing contractor has to repair the deck of your house. Wall decorations such as paintings or other items should be taken down, to prevent any damage. If you have chandeliers, removing them is a great idea, as it is always better to be safe than sorry.
