You probably already know that most roofing projects, especially a replacement, will take a considerable amount of your time and money. That’s why you need to take measures that ensure the process runs safely and smoothly throughout. But how exactly do you get started? A Cut Above Exteriors, the premier roofing and siding contractor in the area, shares some handy tips.
1. Have a thorough understanding of the project’s scope. This means making sure you have a plan that covers every detail and component of the roofing project, and allows your roofer to establish a more accurate pricing estimate. In fact, it pays to review all the essentials with your roofer before starting the project. This way, you can also deal with any issue or change orders that might come up.
2. Adhere to your area’s codes and regulations. Building codes direct most home improvement projects, from a siding replacement to a roof installation. They are in place to keep you and your family safe while inside your home, so you should fully adhere to them to ensure a worry-free process. Non-compliance can result in hefty fines, forced removal of your new investment, or even potential litigation. At A Cut Above Exteriors, we always review all applicable codes and acquire the needed building permits before starting a project.
3. Prepare your home accordingly for the work ahead. This is especially important if you’re having a new roof installed because it helps prevent unnecessary delays. Talk to your children about the upcoming roofing work. Make the appropriate arrangements that keep them away from the work area. The same goes for pets–the noise and flurry of activity might distress them so keep them somewhere safe and quiet. It’s also a good idea to inform your neighbors about the work beforehand as a courtesy.
4. Make safety a priority. You and your choice of roofer should be on the same page about taking precautions that prevent unnecessary mess and damage to your property. A Cut Above Exteriors only has the utmost respect for our clients. We treat their home and property like our own, and aim to keep them safe and intact as we proceed with the work. We also handle post-work cleanup, such as disposing of debris properly and sweeping the area for stray nails.
