Many homeowners throughout the nation have never had to replace the roof on their home. Most local, trusted contractors make a point of helping new homeowners through the process in a simple, streamlined way. Here are a few things that you may experience when you begin the project of putting a new roof on your home.
All roof replacement projects begin with a professional inspection and consultation. An A-1 Property Services representative will visit your home to discuss the work to be completed, the material selections available, and the projected time frame. The homeowner receives paperwork that outlines the details of the project scope and includes a written estimate. Once a contract is signed, we will schedule a crew to begin work.
Some roof systems are more complicated than others, but most residential jobs take an average of one to three days to complete, weather permitting. Once we start your job, our crew is expected to stay on it until completion. We do not ask our crews to work multiple projects at once.
The Homeowner’s Role
It’s generally not necessary for you to be at home during roof repair or replacement. If you have pets or small children who might be frightened by loud noise, we recommend you take them out while work is being done. You may also notice increased dust inside your home.
Protecting the Property
The A-1 Property Services team takes special care not to damage your lawn, garden or landscaping during the project. We use scaffolding, tarps and other forms of shielding to minimize any disruption. We do encourage removal of fragile lawn ornaments, patio furniture, etc., prior to the start of the project.
Cleaning up the Work Site
After every job, the work site is thoroughly cleaned up. All debris will be cleaned up and taken away on the same day – if for some reason we cannot remove the debris on the same day (extreme weather or other unforeseen causes), we will let the homeowner know and return as soon as possible to take it away.
