A roof replacement is more than just an important investment—it is a vital step in extending the life and value of your home. While a new roof can instantly boost your home’s curb appeal, take note that the project isn’t over upon completion. There’s the matter of roofing cleanup that is usually carried out by the pros who installed the roof.
Today, ARCH Exteriors, LLC, your local provider of roofing and replacement windows installation services, shares why it is important to hire roofers who do post-job cleanups.
The Roofers’ Responsibility
Roof replacement projects often generate trash and debris from tearing off old shingles. Other discarded materials include nails and pieces of flashings, underlayment, and fascia. Sometimes, even with preventive measures in place, there can be instances where property damage can occur.
A professional roofing company is responsible for handling cleanup arrangements necessary to put your home back to its original condition before it started working on roofing projects. In addition to the removal and cleanup of all debris and discarded materials, the pros must also take the necessary steps in making sure proper repairs are made or that damaged items have been replaced with your approval.
Things to Keep in Mind
Before you agree to work with a roofing contractor for your roofing project, see to it that the post-job cleanups are part of their contract. Don’t sign anything if it doesn’t outline their arrangements and preventive measures when it comes to disposing of the waste materials and protecting your home from damage.
Even when the pros do carry out their responsibilities in keeping your property clean, it’s a must that you inspect your home and its surroundings before signing off on the roofing job. You can ask them to check once more for any stray nails on your yard or plant beds before they leave the site. Also, check if they are doing ways to prevent damage on your driveway, especially in placing their dumpster for waste collection.
