Once you pick a roofing contractor to install a new roof on your home, there are a couple tips for safety and protection of your possessions and the workers on your property.
Safety of kids and pets:
The average roof can last for decades, so all the work on the top of your house can be an exciting and interesting activity that most pets and kids only get to see once. This curiosity can lead to dangerous situations for both. Before construction begins, let your children know what is going to be happening and that they need to stay clear from the work area. Make arrangements to have pets inside or away from the home. The safety of your family and our workers is our number one priority.
The area around the work area:
In Colorado Springs, most homes have small yard areas and short driveways. Cars, truck and motorcycles or any other recreational vehicles should be removed from the driveway. Also make sure the cover is on your pool or hot tub. Move grills and patio furniture away from the work zone if possible. If there are any low hanging tree branches that are directly over the roof area, they may need to be trimmed back. If it’s the holiday season or if you leave your lights on your gutters and rake edges of the house year-round, they will also need to be removed. Our workers will need access to electrical outlets, preferably exterior. If there are no outside outlets or any in your garage, an extension cord may need to be run through a door or window.
Inside the home:
While the work is being done outside your home, we suggest you remove any loosely hung wall decorations as the pounding on the roof might cause walls to shake a little.
If you have any questions on what to do or what to not do before we install your new roof please feel free to contact the office of Front Range Roofing and Siding during normal business hours. We look forward to working with you.
