If you’re facing a metal roof installation by an experienced South Shore roofer, there are some things you can do to prepare for the project.
Consider Your Options: Colors, Profiles, Gauge…
Talk to your roofer to see which metal roofing materials are available for your project. They can sit down with you and give you access to product information, color charts, product samples and more.
The top consideration when choosing metal panels is the pitch of the roof. Choose a profile that will perform the best with your roof pitch so it stays weathertight. Once you do that, you can choose the profile and color, which will depend on your style and budget.
Hire a Metal Roofing Contractor
Now you need to select a reputable contractor to install your metal roof. Look for someone with vast experience in installing metal roofing. Read reviews, gather estimates and do your research before making a decision.
Building Owner Prep Work
Your contractor will do all the heavy lifting and handle the actual installation, but there are some things you can do to prep for the project.
1. Clear the Space
Clear the area around your home to provide a sufficient workspace for the roofer. Remove items from the patio, yard, deck and balcony to avoid damage. Take things off the wall in your home that could fall due to vibrations, such as framed photos and other valuables. Cover nearby landscaping, such as shrubs and flower gardens, with tarps. For business properties, set up barriers to keep employees and customers safe. Let your vendors and clients know of the project so they can make the proper arrangements.
2. Tell Your Neighbors
As a courtesy, warn your neighbors that they may be hearing loud noises or trucks coming and going. Let them know work may start early in the morning and that they may experience disruptions. Tell them the estimated timeline of completion so they have a good idea of when everything will be back to normal.
3. Make Proper Arrangements
Make arrangements for people and pets who will be disturbed by the noise of installation. Hire a sitter for small children, put your dog in a kennel, and make arrangements for any elderly parents living in the home to visit with a friend for a day or two.
Tell your family members, including children, the safest routes into and out of the house while the installation is going on, and make sure they know the dangers involved in a roofing project.
