When installing a new roof for your home, of course, your main concern would be that everything is done properly, on time and within budget. Sometimes, we are so caught up in the nitty-gritty during a roof installation that we forget just how messy such a major project could be. While most roofing contractors will take care not to damage your property, it never hurts to be thorough. Here’s how you can protect your lawn and garden during a roof replacement job.
Before the workers arrive, it is a good idea to walk around your property and take as many photos of the perimeter of your house including your lawn and garden. Take special care to photograph areas that you would like to keep safe the most – like your prized rose bush, for instance.
When the roofing contractors do arrive, do another walk-around inspection, this time with the supervisor. Give special instructions with regards to your lawn or garden to ensure that they do not get damaged during the course of the installation.
If there are any plants or shrubs that are growing too close to the area where the work will be conducted, be sure to use a tarp or piece of cloth to protect them from falling debris. Remember, a roof replacement job can be messy work, and you wouldn’t want any dust, nails or tiny pieces of roofing materials to land on your plants.
