Roofing consultations with your contractors are a great opportunity to clarify or address your questions about the project. But you need to know which questions to ask to ensure your requirements are covered.
1. Should You Move Out of Your Home During a Roof Replacement?
With some significant adjustments to your day-to-day routine, you could stay in your home. However, most homeowners would rather move out and stay in temporary accommodations than deal with the construction noise.
2. Can Your Leave Pets at Home?
Construction noise and the presence of strangers can be stressful for pets, which is why it’s recommended that you take them along with you or drop them off at a friend’s place to keep them away from all the stressful noise.
3. How Long Does a Roof Replacement Usually Take?
The actual installation of your new roof would normally take about one to seven days. Keep in mind that before construction work can begin, you’ll need to go through the planning phase and acquire the necessary permits for the roof replacement, which would take about one to three weeks and two to four weeks respectively.
4. What’s the Contingency Plan in Case the Weather Doesn’t Cooperate?
You can never rule out the risk of delays or disruptions to your project, which is why you should ask your roofers about their contingency plan in case it rains or there’s a storm.
5. What Are the Ways to Maximize the ROIs on a New Roof?
When making a significant investment like installing a new roof, you should focus on the features that can give you better ROIs and avoid getting too preoccupied with the costs.
