How To Prepare Your Home For a Roof Replacement

If you’re having work done on your roof, you know that your contractors are prepping in advance to do the best job possible, but did you know that there are things you can do as well?

Roofing companies in Ann Arbor do a lot of planning in advance before they go to a job site, and there are some small tasks you can do to make sure they can get the job done easily and quickly.

At Wilderness Construction Inc., we’ve been one of the most trusted roofing companies in Ann Arbor since 1999. Part of our great relationship with Washtenaw County is making sure that we have great relationships with our clients before, during and after a renovation.

We’ve come up with a list of things you can do to ensure that your roofing job goes smoothly:

  • Inform your neighbors: Let your neighbors know that contractors will be coming to your home to work on your roof. Giving them advance notice will keep the relations between you friendly, as you’re letting them know about noise and overcrowding of street parking.
  • Prepare your yard: When roofing companies in Ann Arbor come to your home, unloading the materials is the first step. Our technicians will set up the materials needed for your job on your lawn, so make sure to clear it of any debris, and give the crew enough room to work. Clearing away any toys or belongings will prevent them from being damaged accidentally.
  • Secure any hanging belongings in your home. These include things like paintings, mirrors, chandeliers, and anything else that could fall and be damaged as a result of the vibrations likely to occur when your roof is being worked on.

Doing these things before your contractors arrive will make the process of getting a new roof go smoother.
