A roof replacement project is a major investment of your time, money and energy. It’s important to plan for this project properly and get it right the first time. After all, you might have to live with the results of this project for years to come. To help you plan for this project and set your expectations, TJ Exteriors, a roof replacement and window installation expert, discusses the typical roof replacement timeline.
A Few Days Before the Roof Replacement
Your contractor might deliver a dumpster to your home to store debris. They might also deliver another dumpster if they recycle your shingles. Your shingles will arrive a few days before work begins. These shingles might be stored in your driveway or placed on your roof. We recommend asking your contractor when the shingles will be delivered, so you can move your car.
During the Roof Installation
During roof installation day, we recommend locking up any pets and taking appropriate measures to protect valuables in your kitchen. As one of the top doors and window installers in our area, we recommend covering your flowers and shrubbery to protect them. If you have any special requests for your contractor, let them know in advance before installation day.
Final Work Day
After finishing the roof installation, your roofing contractor will most likely perform a final walk-through with you. They will also do a sweep of your yard for debris and loose nails. We recommend talking to your contractor about their specific cleanup process before installation day.
A Few Days After the Roof Replacement
A representative from your contractor will most likely set up a time to come to your house a few days after the roof replacement. They will perform a general review and collect the final payment. You might also register your roof warranty at this time. Lastly, the dumpster will be picked up.
