Installing or replacing a brand new roof is not just a big investment, it’s also a large job that requires some planning. The first step to any roofing project is to call your local roofer, get an inspection, and schedule an appointment. After, your roofer may have to order the right roofing materials, install your roof, and clean up when they finish.
With so many steps for such a big project, it’s recommended to consider your project timeline to ensure that your home is always secure and protected. Any step that is delayed can result in your entire roofing project being pushed back. Here are some tips to minimize the chances of that happening.
Your local roofer should be able to help you keep track of all the moving parts and details of your roofing project. We recommend talking with your contractor to make sure you’re on the same page. Of course, it’s important to first choose a roofing company that is trustworthy and professional. Once hired, talk with your roofer to make sure that everyone is on the same page. They will recommend a schedule and let you know if there are any permits required, as well as tell you how long the job will take.
We cannot control the weather, but we can do our best to work around it. If you have an intensive roofing project, choose a month with milder temperatures and clear weather. This does not mean that roof work cannot be done in other parts of the year, but heavy rains, ice, and snow can certainly delay or pause a project. Your roofer will also recommend an ideal time to start on a project that is safe for all parties.
Permit laws vary from state to state and county to county. Your roofer should be able to let you know if you’re required to get any permits for your roofing project. If so, make sure to get your permits as soon as possible. Otherwise your contractor will not be able to start on the work.
Some roofing jobs take about a day to complete, but there are other times when a roofing project may take longer. Even for daytime projects, roof work can be loud and disruptive, especially for children and pets. To keep everyone safe and happy, you may want to make accommodations with a neighbor, friends, or family. Your contractor will also let you know if there are any special instructions to follow to prepare your house before they arrive.
