When you have work done on your roof, the primary concern on your mind is, of course, that your roofer does an excellent job. So much so that you tend to forget the mess that the project can potentially generate. While an experienced roofing professional will take extra precautions to avoid property damage, sometimes accidents do happen. So, as the old saying goes, “it is better safe than sorry.” With that in mind, here are a few tips on how to protect your garden when it’s time to install that new roof.
Before the workers arrive, be sure to take the time to walk around the perimeter of your house and give your plants a quick visual inspection. Take plenty of photographs of your garden, especially the areas that you want to keep safe the most. If you have a prized rose bush, for instance, you would want to take several photos from all angles. When your contractor does arrive, it is also a good idea to provide special instructions you might have with regards to your garden to prevent your plants from being damaged.
If you have plants that are growing too close you the side of your house, you can use a tarp to cover them up to protect them. A roof replacement job can drop plenty of dust and debris which could land on your plants.
A tarp or piece of cloth can prevent this from happening and will also make cleanup a lot faster and easier.
