Repairing My Roof

3 Things To Do To Get Ready For The Roofers

When you are getting ready to get your roof replaced, you want to make sure that you have everything ready for the roofers to come to your house and do some work. If you have these things done, it can let them get the job done faster and more efficiently. 

Clean Off Your Roof

This doesn't mean that you need to go up and make sure that you sweep your roof off. What it does mean is that you are going to want to go up there and take off things like antennas and satellites, as well as any decorations. If you have solar panels, you may want to speak to the company that did the installation for them to have them come and remove them for you and store them safely until the roof is completely installed. Once that's done, they can come back and reinstall your solar panels for you. 

Plan For Kids and Pets

Another thing that you want to do before the roofers come is to make sure that you have figured out what you are going to do with your kids or pets while the roofers are there. You can't let them out into the yard while you have the roofers working there, because it wouldn't be safe for the kids, pets, or roofers. So, you will want to come up with some other plans. That could include having your children spend the day at a friend or family member's home or taking your pets out to a dog park or a pet daycare for the day. You don't want to alter their lives too much for the days that the roofers are there, because kids and pets are often sensitive to changes, and having the workers there to begin with can be stressful. However, having to stay inside all the time can make it even harder. 

Think About Power

The roofers are going to have to have power for their tools so that they can do their jobs. You will want to make sure that they have access to that. You shouldn't have to provide extension cords, because it should be something they have, but they will need to have access to power outlets so that they can plug them in. If you have an outdoor outlet, make sure that there is power going to it, or clear out a couple of outlets near doors or windows that they can use. 

Getting a new roof on your house can be a great thing. Making sure that you are ready for the roofers to come install it can help everything go smoothly. Reach out to a local company to learn more
