A roof replacement and any other roofing job require careful planning to ensure success. This includes preparing your home before your contractor steps on the property. To make sure the project goes as smoothly as possible, here are a few tips you can follow:

Know Your Involvement

First, find out how involved you need to be throughout the project. For instance, any decisions that affect the total cost of the new roof should directly involve you. Make sure that you have a contact person who can address your concerns and keep you up to date with the status of their work.

If you don’t mind the noise and some disruption, it’s also best if you could stay at home as your contractor works on your roof. While you can look at the progress now and then, take note that roofers don’t need to be watched the whole time.

Prep Your Home

Make your home accessible before starting the roofing work. Move your car, bike and other items that could get in the way of your contractor. You should also remove outdoor furniture and relocate your potted plants somewhere safe. Then, take off wall decorations and other fragile objects that are prone to breaking.

You may also cover your landscaping and other belongings to protect them from falling debris. If you don’t have a tarp, your contractor should provide you with one as part of their safety precautions.

Prioritize Safety and Convenience

Loud noises coming from the roof can be stressful for children and pets. It’s practical to have them stay at a friend’s or neighbor’s house until the project is done. Should you all decide to stay, then make sure to keep them away from the worksite to avoid accidents and injuries. You should also inform your neighbors about the roofing work so they can prepare for any inconveniences it may cause.

Customer Reviews
What our customers are saying

Our experience was fantastic. They worked quickly and efficiently and got the work done in a single day and the roof looks amazing. What we appreciated was the transparency of the work that they were doing and any obstacles that came up they immediately communicated with us. Also when they cleaned up the work site it appeared as if they were never there at all. Exceptional work!

Blue Collar Roofers did a complete tear-off and installation at our house. They were fast, professional, and communicated well throughout. The roof looks great, and they went above expectations with new venting (for our old house). We highly recommend them.

Timothy M

I had some roof damage from high winds and I was worried about the potential for more damage due to rain/snow. I called Blue Collar Roofers and spoke with Alex. Alex was great to work with over the phone and sent someone out to assess my roof the very same day. Thankfully I was able to get my roof repaired quickly and the work looks great! Dave did wonderful work! Thank you so much for your great service!

Jill B

I would recommend Blue Collar Roofers to anyone needing a new roof!
