A roof replacement can bring about many positive impacts, including increased home value, improved aesthetics, increased energy efficiency, and more. However, before you get a roof replacement, there are some essential steps you should take to prepare for this transformative home project!


Read on below for five steps to take before the professionals arrive at your home.


Move Your Vehicles Away From the Work Area

Moving your vehicles away from the work area is essential. The distance from the work area will ensure that your vehicles are undamaged from potential accidents that could occur during the project: falling shingles, debris, and more. Second, moving your vehicles allows professionals to utilize your driveway during the project.


Make Accommodations for Children or Pets

Due to the risks of falling debris and loud noises, you may want to make accommodations for your children and pets during the project to avoid potential stress and injury. To make this simple, ensure that you plan to bring your children or pets to a family or friend’s home during the project.


Disconnect Your Security System

Security systems can get triggered due to the noise and vibrations near your home during your roof replacement. By ensuring that you disconnect your security system for the day, you can avoid the constant alerts on your phone or an accidental visit by local police officers.


Clear Your Yard of All Personable Items

Ensure your items remain unharmed during the home project and clear your yard before professionals arrive for your replacement project. Examples of personal items in your yard include outdoor furniture, children’s toys, lawn decorations, plant pots, and grills. Fallen debris may put these items at risk of damage. To ensure the best possible safety, put these items in your garage or shed space for the day.


Remove All Indoor Wall Decorations

With the intense vibrations the replacement project might produce, it’s wise to remove all indoor wall decorations. If these items are not down before professionals arrive, you risk them falling off the walls and becoming damaged.
