Practical Questions to Ask During a Roofing Consultation

The initial consultation with your residential or commercial roofing contractors is a great opportunity to clarify some of the concerns you may have about your upcoming roofing project. You can start the consultation by asking them some of these questions:

Should You Move Out of Your Home While Your Roof Is Being Replaced?

With a few adjustments to their daily routine or work schedule, it’s possible to stay in your home during the roof replacement project. However,  for most homeowners, it can make more sense to find alternative accommodations than deal with all the construction noise.

Is It Okay to Leave Your Pets at Home?

Loud construction noise can be stressful for pets, you may choose to have them stay at a friend or relative’s place while your roof is being replaced.

How Long Does It Usually Take to Finish a Roof Replacement?

It takes about 1 to 7 days to install a roof replacement. However, keep in mind that before the actual construction work can start, you’ll need to plan your roofing project and acquire the necessary permits. These would normally take about 1 to 3 weeks and 2 to 4 weeks respectively.

What’re the Contingency Plans in Case the Weather Doesn’t Cooperate?

The weather is getting more unpredictable nowadays, which is why you should ask your roofing contractor about their contingency plans in case it rains or there’s a storm or extreme weather event.

How Can You Maximize Your Returns on Investment (ROIs)?
