If you’ve selected an Orange County roofer to repair or replace your roof, you should be ready. This means, prepare your home and its inhabitants for all the roofing action -- and yes, for the roofing commotion that's part of the process.
A good place to start is with children and pets. Like it or not, roof work is not exactly a silent endeavor. Hammering, pounding, tearing, scraping, and other loud noises will reverberate as Orange County roofers do their job. Pets may be especially sensitive to the whirl of sound effects, finding the experience uncomfortably stressful. Therefore, homeowners should do everything possible to increase the comfort levels of the potentially affected. That may mean temporarily relocating children or pets with family members or friends. Keep all options on the table.
The pounding may affect more than your home's residents, however. When an Orange County roofing company gets to work, the loud activity may send a wave of vibrations through your home. And that means objects could get shaken from walls. Given this possibility, homeowners should remove any vulnerable decorations from their walls. Store them in a safe place until the work is done, putting them back only when the coast is clear. And don’t forget to show some consideration to your Orange County roofer. If possible, relocate your vehicle to a spot away from your home, creating a close and convenient parking space for work vehicles. This gives crew members quick access to equipment, tools, and supplies.
