Asphalt-shingle roof replacement is one of the least inconvenient home exterior projects there is. The whole process can take as little as one week, which is why its construction is rarely accused of being stressful. However, it does have a bad reputation for being messy.
The mess, along with the loud noise, can annoy you in the next seven or so days, so you better prepare for it. If you ask Classic Remodeling Corp., the following tips can help you keep the debris in your yard during the project to a minimum:
Ask Your Contractor About Their Cleanup Policy
Before hiring any roofing company, learn about its approach to the replacement process. Find out how the crew will clear the job site after a day’s work or if another party will take care of the cleanup. Garbage disposal may not be part of the standard service of your roofer, so clarify this matter early on.
Even if you are convinced with the answers you receive, do not stop there. Read the contract thoroughly to ensure that it reflects everything you have discussed. At the end of the day, the document’s content is what matters, not verbal promises. You can’t hold the company accountable for not doing something not stated in the contract.
Look for the Nail Finder
Classic Remodeling Corp. attests that every reliable roofing and siding contractor uses a magnetic nail finder to collect the pieces not easily noticeable. If a crew does not have a nail finder before commencing construction, there is a good chance that your yard will be hazardous after the job.
Construction-Proof Your House Interiors
The vibration from all of the banging can shower your valuables inside the house with a significant amount of dust. Cover your bed, carpet, furniture and other hard-to-clean interior features with drop cloths to catch the dust particles as they fall.
Remove the Dust Immediately
Any siding and roofing expert recommends cleaning dusty fixtures and areas right away. Indoor moisture can turn specks of dust to stubborn grime, making cleanup harder than it should be.
