Preparing your home before a new roof is installed is an important step in ensuring the installation process goes smoothly and safely. Here are some steps you can take to prepare your home:

Clear the Work Area:

Clear any items that may be in the way of the installation process. This includes outdoor furniture, decorations, and any other items around the perimeter of your home. It is also important to clear the driveway or parking area to make it easier for the roofing crew to access your home.

Protect Your Belongings:

The installation process may cause vibrations that could potentially damage items inside your home. To avoid this, remove any fragile or valuable items from shelves and walls and place them in a safe location.

Inform Your Neighbors:

Let your neighbors know about the upcoming roof installation, as the process can be noisy and disruptive. This will allow them to make any necessary arrangements and avoid any inconvenience.

Trim Trees and Bushes:

Trees and bushes that overhang your roof can impede the installation process and also pose a risk to the roofing crew. Trim any branches that may be in the way or pose a risk. The crew installing your new roof will greatly appreciate it!

Secure Pets and Children:

For safety reasons, it is best to keep children and pets away from the work area during the installation process. Secure pets in an enclosed area, and make sure children are supervised and kept at a safe distance from the work area.

Remove Satellite Dishes and Antennas:

If you have any satellite dishes or antennas on your roof, have them removed before the installation process begins. This will ensure they are not damaged during the installation process.
