How You Should Prepare Your Home for a Roofing Project  

654 0

Residential roofing replacement is a labor-intensive task that can disrupt your daily life and affect the layout of your house. It is important to make time for preparations and the involvement of others. This will ensure that the project is completed on schedule.

Children and Pets

In preparation for your roof replacement project, one of the most important things you can do is inform your children about what’s going to happen in the next few days. They will be affected as well. In the meantime, set some ground rules for your children and assign them a place to play so that they don’t get in your way.

You can also ask for them to stay with a relative while the project is running. You might consider putting your pets in a kennel to avoid them getting stressed out by the noises from contractors.


Your neighbor should be informed about the roofing project before it begins. Although they might be excited about the new roof, they may also be worried about noise and their pets. You can inform them so they have enough time to prepare.


Roof replacement can be messy and most of the debris could end up in your yard. Make sure you prepare for this. To ensure that no debris falls on your car, park your cars at a safe distance from your home the night before your roofing contractor arrives. To prevent damage to your patio furniture or toys, clear the area. You can arrange with your contractor to cover your plants with a tarp prior to the work begins.


Although the roofers won’t be working inside your home, dust from the roof job can still fall. Keep this in mind as you clear your attic of valuables and protect them from dust and dirt by placing drop sheets or tarps. You can also prepare your home by getting rid of any wall decorations that could fall or break.
