One of the top complaints homeowners have about roof repair is about the mess and damage that often gets left behind. While any reputable roofer will take measures to ensure no damage is inflicted on your property, there are a few things you can do to give your property extra protection.
Here are some tips from South Point Roofing & Construction
Survey the Surroundings
Taking stock of your property prior to the roofing project can help you determine which items to move, secure or store away for the time being. At-risk objects and areas such as flowerbeds, lawn ornaments, patio furniture, potted plants and outdoor equipment should either be removed from the premises and stored somewhere safe or covered with tarps or plywood.
Minimize the risk of damage by mowing your lawn to the optimal height so that it’s easier for your roof maintenance contractor to spot discarded nails and debris after the roofing job. If you have an automatic sprinkler system, make sure to program it so it doesn’t turn on during operation hours.
Hire a Pro
When you work with a professional roofing contractor, you can be sure that your lawn, garden and entire property will be in good hands. Reputable roofers take the necessary steps to keep homeowners and their property safe and protected during a roofing project. In fact, most roofing companies treat cleanup as part of the roofing job. Some contractors even offer this service for free.
