May 02, 2023

A roof replacement is a massive investment for your home. Throughout the new roof installation, you want to make sure that it is going smoothly. However, if you have not had a roof replacement completed on your home before, you may not be sure what to expect. When starting a roof installation, you want to ensure that you're prepared for the process. Continue reading to learn what to expect during a roof installation.

Prior to the actual roof installation, there will be a dump trailer delivered to your home to place all the old roofing material in during the roofing replacement process. Also, the new roofing material will be delivered before the installation date, so the technicians are prepared.

During the roof installation itself, it can be noisy while the roofing contractors are removing the old roofing material and installing the new material so be prepared for the distractions. It's also important to have a discussion ahead of time with your roofing company to set a process and expectations so you both understand how the roofing process will go.

When the roof replacement is complete, your roofing contractor should do a quick walk-around with you to make sure you are comfortable with how your roof looks. This is also an opportunity for you to ensure that everything that was supposed to be completed by the roofing contractor has been done. If you discuss the clean-up process, this is also a chance to make sure the roofing company has held up their end of the clean-up process.

In the days after the completed roof replacement, any unused roofing materials will be picked up and the roof contractor will connect with you for final payment.

When deciding on a roofing contractor prior to your roof replacement, you should discuss their process throughout the roof replacement. This sets expectations for both parties ahead of time so you both have an equal understanding of responsibilities.

There are also steps you can take to help prepare your home for a roof replacement to make the process as soon as possible.
