Be considerate of the people living close to you when you’re tackling a roof replacement project. Not only does it disrupt the everyday routine of your household, but it may also cause stress to your neighbors. My Roofing, one of the most trusted roofing contractors, discusses how to be considerate of your neighbors during your roofing project.
Alert Them in Advance
The loud noises, the presence of roofing personnel, and the mess that usually accompany a roofing project affects your neighborhood. You should always inform your nearest neighbors ahead of time about your roof replacement project and how long it may last. Giving them a heads-up would allow ample time for them to prepare for it, especially if they have kids and pets.
Keep the Area Clear of Roof Debris
You might not be able to do anything about the loud noises coming from your roof replacement, but you do have a voice in how the roofing process goes. Instruct your roofers to take extra measures in containing the debris when they’re tearing out your old roof materials. This means laying down extra layers of tarp and observing proper waste disposal to keep any stray debris away from your neighbors’ lawns. Our roof and gutters experts are always vigilant about how we handle roof tear-off and disposal.
Be Mindful of Street Parking
During roof construction, your contractor’s van or truck may be parked in front of your home. It could block the driveway of your neighbor, hinder their view for days, or worse, take up their designated parking spots. Days before your roofing project begins, assign a place where your roofer’s vehicle can park. This might mean moving your own car for the meantime.
Our roofing services come with excellent roof inspections to guarantee the new roof we built for you can last longer. My Roofing values our customers and what they want out of our roofing solutions. Call us today at (817) 912-5500 or fill out our contact form to request a free project estimate.
