What to Expect and How to Prepare for Your New Roof Installation

It can be an exciting time when you are getting a new roof for your home—think of it as bringing back new life or stripping away years from the look of your home.  A new roof is a refreshing and revitalizing addition to any home.  But when it comes to your new or updated roof installation, what can you expect?

First, you should expect your contractor to come out and do a full inspection of the site and roof so that they can give you a fair estimate of the cost and timeline.  Be aware that it is common to find surprises once an old roof is stripped away or a new roof installation begins, so don’t be surprised if the cost changes a little.  One thing that can help you be sure you are being honestly and fairly dealt with is if you are given a detailed written estimate of the job and the work it will entail.  Then, if something extra needs to be tacked on, you know exactly where the cost is coming from and how it fits in with the rest of the job.

Once the work is set to begin, there are a few things you can do to better prepare your property.  First, clear away any lawn or patio furniture.  Roofing can be messy work, and while we pride ourselves on keeping a clean workspace, you must expect some dust and debris.  By clearing away any potted plants or outside décor beforehand, you can make access for the team easier and better protect your items from any falling debris or dust.

You should also expect clear communication from your contractor regarding the progress, timeline, and any unexpected additions to the estimate.  Your contractor is your key point of contact for keeping on the up-and-up with the project, and he or she is there to help serve and meet your needs.  Don’t be afraid to talk to them and ask questions.
