How to prepare yourself and your home for a shingle roof installation


Sooner or later the day will come when you will have to replace your roofing system with a brand new one, we at Choice Solutions Roofing & Exteriors know this very well. In this blog post, we will talk about shingle roofing system to be precise since shingles are one of the most common roofing materials. They are popular because they are light in weight, they are easy to work with, they are available in many colors and patterns, and they are budget-friendly roofing material. So let’s say that you have already opted for shingles as your roofing material of choice, you have already picked a color, and you have reviewed the extent of the work which will be required to finish the project. Roof installation project will turn your home into a construction site for some time, and there are steps you can take to make yourself and your family prepared for what’s to come during the roofing project.

You need to free the space around your home

Roofers will have to get close to your home in order for them to get up on the roof. All of their tools and materials will also have to be as close as possible to your home and your roof. Make sure that you clean out anything that might be in the way of roofers and ensure that you free-up the driveway. Park your car little further from home so that your roofing contractor can easily access your home and your roof.

Pets and kids

It is always highly recommendable to keep your children and your pets away from the project site. It would be best if they were to stay indoors or away from the job site. There are many things that can go wrong if you have pets and children running all over the roof construction site, and nobody wants that to happen. Safety is always the priority.

Roof preparation

You don’t have to worry about the debris falling on your lawn or in your yard. Professional roofing company will always collect all the debris once the project is done. The thing you should do instead is to cut off the power to any attic ventilation fans and if you have some valuable things stored in the attic make sure to adequately protect them since the dust will be falling all over the place. You can cover them with something, or you can even relocate them to another room.


Talk to your neighbors and let them know that you have a roof installation project on hands and that you hope it won’t be a problem for them. Hammers, nailguns, nail and other tools will be continuously used, and they will make loud noises. Prepare yourself and your close neighbors for that.

Once the project is over, your roofing contractor will inspect your roof to see if everything is okay. Once the inspection is over, roofing project is finished, and you can enjoy your brand-new roofing system.
