Knowing What To Watch Out For As You Re-Roof A Building

by / Monday, 18 March 2019 / Published in Tips

The full re-roofing of a building is an extensive process that will take multiple days. As a result, there will inevitably be a period of time throughout which your home will be exposed to everything nature throws at it. However, there is a way to make the process as safe as possible and that is by factoring in the following:

Extreme Weather Conditions

Since your roof will be gone, the underlying materials will be exposed to the elements. Because of this, you will need to undertake the re-roofing during a time of year where rain is sparse, otherwise the decking and insulation of your home are at risk of mold and decay, which would prolong the undertaking as repairs are done prior to the commencing of the re-roofing process. You might need to call in the mold remediation services to treat the walls, attic and roof before the rest of roof repairs can be done. It will take time, but you can have mold free home.

Failure To Schedule An Inspection

Before you ever start the re-roofing process, it is important to schedule a full inspection so that any damages that may have occurred are detected and accounted for, and can be included in the planning process. As a result, the roofer will be able to plan out how many people and which materials and equipment will be needed to get the job done. Unfortunate surprises would only lead to a higher bill and extended schedule that will further leave your home exposed at the mercy of the elements.

Picking the Wrong Roofer

You shouldn’t just look for the roof repairs service in Napa who offers the cheapest deal, but also take their offered quality into consideration. Look into the materials they will use, their track record, their reputation, their warranty, and then you can consider the expenses. After all, this new roof is not just a one-time purchase, it is an investment. What good does a cheap re-roofing do you when you will be left with leaks and other damages, just a few years down the line?

Failure To Account For The Clean Up

It is important not to neglect the importance of a good clean up service. Re-roofing a building requires a lot of materials and produces a lot of debris. If left lying around, this can quickly pose a health and safety hazard since these piles of trash could include sharp roof tile shards, roofing nails, and other dangerous materials and debris. This is why it is important to choose a roofer with a track record of thorough clean up services.
