What Do I Do About My Roof?
We get that you’re not always keeping tabs on your roof, so when you finally have to deal with it you have a lot of questions that need to be addressed, which is why we are providing a few answers to frequently asked questions:
Step 1: Preparation
Debris and dust falling from underneath the roof is inevitable, we suggest covering all important areas in the space as well as covering any equipment you may have near our work area.
This work also produces some noise as well as vibrations, which can disrupt things such as ceiling fixtures or items hanging on walls. Please temporarily remove or protect these items. It may be beneficial to temporarily move any employees who may be disrupted by the project.
Please inform us of any building or parking lot restrictions that are in place.
Step 2: Delivery
Materials are delivered about two days before the scheduled project time, and they are commonly kept on the property. While usually delivered straight onto the roof, some circumstances require the material to be stored in a parking lot or surrounding area. In this instance, please secure an area for the material and communicate to us where this is.
Roofing material takes up space, so please be sure the storage area is out of the way so we do not disrupt any day-to-day operations.
Step 3: Installation
It’s time for the installation of your new roof! Our team will arrive at the agreed upon time and begin this process.
If possible, we suggest having your main contact person on location. Though, if this is not possible that is okay and we assure you we will be working hard to complete all of your roofing needs!
Step 4: Cleanup
Our goal is to keep the project area as clean as possible as we work, but we do go over the area again once the project is complete.
We use a magnetic tool to pick up any leftover debris from our project as well.
We are happy to provide assistance in moving any items back to their original spaces, which were moved in anticipation of the roofing project.
We hope all you will see once we are done is a new or improved roof and no other evidence of us being there!
Step 5: Peace of Mind
The roof is complete and any worry can be set at ease. After the installation, there may be small granules that will be washed out through the gutters. Please know this is completely normal.
Sit back and relax and know your home is now more safe and secure with a new or repaired roof!
We want to be completely transparent and to keep you confident and knowledgeable throughout our time together.
Our roofing experts at Top Roofco are happy to walk you through the whole process and will help with making the best decision for you and your family.
