3 Things You Can Do To Make Having Your Roof Replaced More Convenient For Your Family
Now that you've decided to have your home's roof replaced, you'll have to plan for the project to ensure that it doesn't inconvenience your family too much. Here are a few things you should consider doing:
Get a Full Estimate Beforehand
To make sure that you're financially prepared to have your new roof installed, it's important to get an estimate for all of the work that your service provider will do. Keep in mind that you will be paying for more than just the roof itself when having it installed.
So in addition to getting an estimate for the cost of the roof itself, schedule a consultation appointment with your service provider so they can personally inspect your roof and get a clear idea of how much work will be involved during the roof replacement process. This will allow them to provide you with an accurate service fee estimate so you have a realistic idea of how much you'll actually be paying to have your home's roof replaced.
Stay Away From Home
It's likely to be loud while your roof gets replaced, which can be irritating and stressful for the whole family. And your roof won't be covered for some time while the old one is being taken off and the new one is being put on. So it's a good idea if your family isn't at home at all while the roofing replacement project takes place.
If possible, try to schedule your roofing project for a time when everyone is supposed to be at school and work. If that won't work out, consider taking everyone to a movie and then lunch. If your roofing project will take more than a day, schedule it for a weekend and spend that time at a local hotel for a fun "staycation" with the family.
Hire a Cleanup Crew
While your roofing contractor will clean up a lot of the mess that's left behind after your roofing replacement is complete, you may be left with some scraps and other garbage to clean up yourself. Luckily, you can skip the hard work and put the roofing project quickly behind you by hiring a cleanup crew. Just have the crew come a day or two after your roof gets installed and have them take everything that's been left behind away. Your whole family is sure to thank you for sparing them the legwork of cleaning up.
