Avalon Roofing believes that thorough preparation is key for a safe and successful roofing project.
The following is a “Preparation for Roofing” letter we like to review with our clients prior to their project start date.
Home Owner / Tenant Preparation for Roofing
In Preparation for Roofing, there are concerns you should be aware of and preventative measures to be taken.
Please be aware and prepare for the following:
- Noise! Noise! Noise! – There will be various levels of noise through the duration of your project. We recommend planning a day away from the house while the job is in progress.
- Protecting Unsecured Items – Vibrations from construction work may cause items to fall off of shelves and walls, please remove or secure items, such as: mirrors, plates, pictures, art, and figurines.
- Protecting Landscape & Outdoor Furniture – We will notify you if the layout of the landscape or trees and shrubbery significantly obstruct our work. Please remove all items around the house at risk of being damaged by falling debris, such as: patio and pool furniture, potted plants, gardening equipment, and grills.
- Attics and Garages – Please remove cars, motorcycles, bicycles, boats, and other storage items at risk of being dirtied or damaged. Debris can fall through spaces in roof decking, check with your estimator if tarping is necessary. Avalon Roofing is not responsible for the removal or cleaning of these items.
- Gutter Damage – Precautions are taken to prevent damage to your existing gutters and downspouts. Your estimator will notify and provide options for you if damage is unavoidable or pre-existing.
