A roof replacement is a major home improvement project, and it is one of the biggest and most important investments you can make in your home. As an experienced general contractor, Krier’s Construction highly recommends preparing for this project. Today, we’ll provide you with tips to help you get ready for your upcoming roof replacement.
Prepare Your Home
We suggest removing your wall hangings, covering your furniture with tarps and storing your valuables before roof replacement day. Make sure to inform your family and neighbors about the upcoming roof replacement because installing a roof is a noisy and dusty process. People may have to make adjustments if they plan on working or doing any activities near your home or inside your home. You should also clear your yard of any obstructions.
Hire the Right Contractor
The most important aspect of the project is hiring your contractor. The quality of your roofing contractor will affect your new roof’s performance and lifespan. Mistakes made during the installation can make your roof more vulnerable to roof leaks. To avoid this, we recommend doing some research into your prospective roofers and verifying their qualifications. Make sure their licenses, certifications and insurance are valid. We also recommend that you only choose experienced companies because of their proven track record.
Get Your Budget Ready
Like with any major home improvement project, you will need to prepare a budget that can withstand unexpected events. Outline your roofing costs, and work with your contractor to figure out the worst possible scenario. Have a contingency fund in place for emergencies. Ask your contractor about the most cost-effective material choices for your roof as well.
