Before starting your roof installation project, you need to take precautions on how you can protect your home’s exteriors and landscape. This is because small debris from old materials might fall off the wrong way and damage your property. Professional roofers will also take safety measures that prevent not only costly repairs but also accidental injury. To help you out, our roofing and gutter installation team at Patriot Roofing LLC shares their insight.
Check Your Surroundings
Your hired contractor will usually do this to look for any furniture, landscape, or items that have pre-existing damage or issues. It’s also standard procedure for many contractors to take a few pictures or even videos as proof of what your landscape and the rest of your home’s surroundings looked like before the roof construction commences. This is also needed to prevent being falsely accused of property damage and forced to pay.
Cover Your Outdoor Furniture and Landscape
The landscape under your roof can also be susceptible to dust, granules, nails, old materials, and other debris. They can also get damaged if they’re not properly protected. This is why roof repair and renovation contractors place tarps over the area, which can include the shrubs and grass as well as any nearby furniture and landscaping. The tarps not only protect the property but also help catch the fallen debris and make it easier to clean them!
Make Use of Trash Bins and Dumpsters
Knowing where to appropriately place the trash bin or dumpster is important if you want to efficiently dispose of the old roofing debris. Contractors usually place them on your driveway, but without proper protection, they can scratch and dent the pavement. Make sure that plywood sheets are placed underneath for protection. Tarps can also be used to place the new roofing materials. Just remember not to place them in soft areas such as grass to prevent unsightly ruts and dips from forming.
