Roofing projects often require additional prep work from the homeowner than other types of projects. So, it’s important to take steps to prepare your space for this type of work.
Find the Right Contractor
Only trust a professional who has proven skills in the roofing industry because you’ll want the job done right from start to finish. Make sure your chosen contractor is duly licensed and insured. The former will assure you that the person has the skills and training to see the project through, and the latter will ensure that you are protected should their workers ever meet with an accident on your property.
Your sidewalk and patio should be clear. This includes everything, including garden ornaments, flora and fauna, furniture and grilles, or any other unnecessary items to avoid unwanted damages. Also, remove wall decorations and any item that is prone to falling down. Roofing companies advise covering everything that is directly below the roof like stuff in the attic.
Putting up barriers will ensure safety for all pedestrians. Since contractors will be working on the home and would need easy access to their equipment, it is important to give them all the space they need. Relocate your cars to a safe distance until the job is done. Stay extra alert because the whole house will have plenty of obstacles, such as debris, extension cords, construction equipment, etc. Be vigilant with these to avoid accidents and injuries.
