Getting your roof replaced is not something that you’ll do every few years. So chances are high that you may not know what to expect when it comes to residential re-roofing or how you should prepare for it.
What To Expect
There are a few things that will happen during this process. Remember that we will be there to assist you, every step of the way.
When you get in touch with the team at Aabco Roofing, we will schedule a date and time to send one of our licensed roofing contractors to provide you with a consultation for your roof.
The contractor will do a thorough inspection of the exterior as well as the interior of your roof, taking detailed measurements as well as noting any problem areas. When meeting with the roofing contractor, you have the opportunity to discuss exactly what you’d like for your roof as well as your specific budget. You will be provided with a free estimate.
We will arrange a follow up meeting to discuss the estimate in person, this will ensure that there are no misunderstandings and you are able to view all of your options.
Sign the Contract
Once you have made your decision, you will sign the contract stating that you accept the given estimate as well as the necessary legal terms and conditions.
Your Job Begins
After we have all the proper permits as well as your roofing materials, your job will be scheduled and we will contact you to discuss the minute details of the job.
How to Prepare
One of the things you need to bear in mind when re-roofing your home is the preparation of your home before the work actually begins. If you don’t make the necessary preparation, you may find re-roofing to be an uncomfortable and even messy experience.
Any work site can be a loud and potentially hazardous space, especially if you have inquisitive young minds that love to explore. It may be best to check into a hotel or stay with family during the re-roofing process, but if that isn’t an option for you, make sure that everyone keeps clear of the designated work area. Speak with your roofing contractor about any safety concerns you may have.
With re-roofing you’ll find a significant amount of dust coating everything in your home; unless you cover anything that can’t be moved. Cover all of your furniture and décor, as well as anything you have stored in your garage or attic. Remember to remove pictures as well as any other items of value from your wall and ensure that fragile items are stored away.
Pets in general are not comfortable with loud noises. If you’re concerned that your pet may run away due to the excessive noise, try and make alternate arrangements such as having a friend or family member pet-sit for the duration of the job.
Ensure that your driveway is kept clear during the re-roofing process as your contractors will be utilizing tear off vehicles and material loading trucks in order to begin your job.
You may find that you have a few more questions regarding the process and the friendly, licensed and efficient team at Aabco Roofing is here to help. No matter what type of roof you have, we will work hard to get you the end results you are looking for.
