How to Prepare for a Major Roofing Project

Any major roofing job requires detailed planning and preparation. Although it’s tough to avoid any kind of trouble throughout the project, you can at least minimize the hassle. High Performance Homes, a siding repair and roof replacement expert, discusses what you can expect and how you can prepare for a significant roofing project.

What to Expect

Roofing projects typically start with consultations. During these sessions with roofers, you can expect them to carry out an in-depth roof inspection, take measurements, discuss your roofing options and how payment is handled, and address any questions you may have regarding the project.

Some of the areas they will likely pay close attention to are the flashing zones, penetration points, low spots, varying roof planes, gutters, roof access and other potential problem areas. Additionally, make sure to inform them about any previous issues your roof had, and take advantage of your consultations with them. Ask about the process, and get to know the contractors. These can help you determine the best roofing company for you.

Homeowner Prep Work

Here are a few things you can add to your to-do list as preparation for your roofing project:

  1. Clean up the items in your yard, deck, patio and balcony. Potted plants, for instance, can be moved to an area underneath your roof. If you have sculptures, birdbaths and other lawn ornaments, consider moving them to a safer area to protect them from getting damaged.
  2. Ensure there are no vehicles, bikes or other items blocking the contractor’s workspace. You can ask them beforehand what areas will be included in their work zone.
  3. If you have kids or pets who might be disturbed by the noise, make arrangements for them during the project. Don’t forget about your pets as well.

For Cameron and everyone, again I say thank you! NW Natural has just recalculated our “equal pay” bill and we’ve gone from $67.00/month to $38.00/month. This is a savings of $348.00 per year plus the electric bill never once exceeded $90.00/month this summer saving us about $300 this year just is savings with the A/C. The windows remain beautiful, functional and more than everything promised! That and a leak free roof, who could ask for anything more! Thanks again!

“This contracting company recently replaced all the windows in my home. All of the associates I interacted with along the way were pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional. The way the windows were installed was done with precision and care for my home, and I did not have to pay any extra for trim around both the outside and inside of the windows. The end result is pleasing to look at, and I can already tell there’s a big difference in how insulated my home is.”

“The Window Crew is absolutely amazing with the work they did on my family member’s home, and they are all very kind.”
