A roof replacement can boost your home’s curb appeal and value. However, like any other major exterior upgrade, you’d have to deal with a messy exterior brought about by the removal of old roofing material. That said, you must exercise extra care to protect your outdoors from potential damage while the roofers are performing their jobs. Consider these tips to help minimize the mess during your roofing project.
Secure items hanging on or near the exterior areas of your home. Days before the first day of the roof installation, make sure to protect patio furniture, grills, gardening tools and potted plants with tarps or plywood.
Your driveway may be used as a staging area for the new roofing materials that will arrive later at your home. Relocate your motor vehicle to protect it from damage.
Tree branches that touch the roofline must be cut down before the roof installation. Doing this allows proper roof access by roof repair and replacement pros. It also prevents the newly installed roof from getting damaged.
Cut grass in your yard to the minimum height possible. This way, stray nails that fall from the roof during construction don’t get concealed. Also, turn off your automatic sprinkler systems to minimize any possible damage during the project.
Put a tarp or plastic covering over flower beds or any landscaping surrounding your home so that they won’t get littered with dust and trash. Hanging plants must be moved to a temporary location as well.
