Preparing for Roof Replacement: Attic, Grills, Rooftop Items

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the basic ways that homeowners can prepare for an upcoming roof replacement appointment. This is a significant job for any home, but with some basic steps ahead of time, you can ensure that everything is completely safe and straightforward for both you and your roofing professionals.

At Whitaker Roofing, we’re happy to offer Salt Lake City’s best roof replacement services, ensuring that clients are always protected from the elements with quality materials. While part one of our series went over themes like children/pets, pathways and vehicle placement, today’s part two will look at some other important preparation tips ahead of roof replacement.

Covering Any Attic Belongings

If you store certain items in the attic, we recommend that you cover them with plastic before your roof replacement appointment. This will ensure that they are not disturbed while our professionals perform their job.

For instance, if you store any furniture or fabrics in the attic, consider covering them with plastic tarps in order to protect and move them away from the job area.

Move Grills and Patio Furniture Out of Work Zone

Before the roofers arrive, it’s important to make sure that any outdoor grills or patio furniture are moved away from the work zone. If possible, keep them in a different area of your backyard. This will ensure that they are not in the way while our crew is hard at work.

If you aren’t sure exactly which areas comprise the work zone, don’t worry! We can provide you with a clear visual guide to make sure that no furniture is in the way.

Removing Any Overhanging Branches

It’s also important to make sure that all of your trees are trimmed ahead of time in order to prevent any overhanging branches from getting in the way during the roof replacement appointment. This will help us to keep the job moving quickly and efficiently while making sure that no unwanted branches are in our crew’s way.

Locate Multiple Power Outlets

Ensuring that your professionals can access multiple power outlets throughout the job is also important. Not only will this help to keep their tools working effectively, but it can also help them move through the task in a timely manner.

Remove Antennas and Satellite Dishes

Finally, if your roof is home to any antennas or satellite dishes, it’s important to make sure that you remove them ahead of your appointment. This will ensure that they are not damaged during the replacement process, and can be easily reinstalled afterwards.

By following these tips, you can ensure that everything is ready for your upcoming roof replacement appointment. With these steps taken care of, you and your roofing professionals can get the job done quickly, effectively – and safely!
