Getting a new roof over your home involves a lot of hammering, drilling, and hauling plenty of materials from one place to another. Unfortunately, that also means that there’s a good chance that your garden and your home’s exterior could get damaged while roof replacement is going on. This is why we’re sharing a few tips on protecting your property during the project.
Identify Existing Problems
You wouldn’t want to put the blame on your roofing contractor for something that was already damaged in the first place. Before work on your new roof starts, check your property for signs of pre-existing damage. In some cases, pre-existing problems might have to be fixed before roof installation begins.
Cover Your Property
Roof repair experts strongly recommend finding a means to cover your garden and exteriors with large sheets of tarp or drop cloth in preparation for the work ahead. This will not only prevent debris from falling on your lawn but also minimize the risk of scratching your siding’s surfaces when work has started.
Identify “Priority” Areas
Some parts of your property are more vulnerable to debris-related problems than others. For example, a part of your home with a big window is considered a high priority area which must be protected more than a plain wall. The same can be said for nearby delicate plants or garden plots where bits of splintered wood and nails could be dangerous.
Prepare Disposal Bins
The sooner you can sort out the debris, the less time they pose a threat to your property. One of the best ways to get this done is by preparing a series of disposal bins ahead of time. Since there’s a convenient place to dispose of the debris, the roofing and siding contractor won’t have to leave stuff lying about until they’re mostly done with the work.
