If it’s time to consider replacing your roof, then you’re going to need to do a little bit of homework. First and foremost, it’s good to have some knowledge about what you can expect when it comes time to change your roof over. Whether you’re switching from asphalt shingles to metal roofing or you’re just getting a new shingle roof, here are a few things you can expect during the transition.
One of the first things you can expect is noise. Replacing a roof can turn into noisy business when it comes time to replace shingles or install metal panels over the roof. If you or someone in your home is sensitive to loud noises, then it may be a good idea to plan to be out of the house while the roofers are at work.
Another important thing to consider is that your yard won’t be roped off like a traditional construction site would be. If you have small children at home, it may be best to keep everyone inside or go to a local park if you want to spend some time outside. While shingles are being removed, they’re tossed into a rolloff dumpster. Unfortunately, this can be a safety hazard for you and your family in the yard.
