In this article, JTI Roofing, the leading expert in asphalt shingle and metal roofing systems in our area, explains the questions you should ask yourself when planning a roof replacement.
1. How Can I Protect My Home?
We recommend covering your furniture with plastic sheets to protect them from dust and debris. The vibrations from the work on your roof can cause dirt, dust and all sorts of things to fall from your vents and ceilings. You should also store all of your valuables and take down your picture frames and wall decorations because they can also fall. You should also make sure that your yard is clear and that there is space near your home where the roofing contractors’ vehicles can park.
2. Should I Stay in My Home During a Roof Replacement?
As one of the top residential and commercial roofing contractors in our local area, we recommend carefully weighing your options before making a decision. Staying in your home means that you will be able to watch over and supervise your roofing contractor. However, you will also have to deal with noise, dust and debris. It’s very likely that the roof replacement will disrupt your daily activities. Moving out means that you and your family will have some peace and quiet.
3. How Long Does a Roof Replacement Take?
A roof replacement takes as long as it has to. The duration of the project will depend on several factors including the kind of roof to be installed, the weather, the skills and resources of the roofing contractor, the size of your home, the state of your current roof and more. If you want a very rough estimate, then we can tell you that an average roof will take 1-3 days to replace. If you want something more accurate, then give us a call.
