Can you be home during a roof replacement?

Is it a good idea to stay home during roof replacement? Read on to find out.

As a homeowner, one of the biggest projects you will ever undertake is a roof replacement. This isn’t something that needs to be done very frequently but there are times when the roof replacement needs to be done immediately.

The roof is the most vulnerable when it rains or snows. Leaks and cracks can make the roof weak, and a disaster can happen under the weight of snow or rain.

Not only should you check the condition of your roof before every winter, but also take care of leaks and cracks. Because the roof is always exposed to the elements, a small crack can snowball into a mishap and endanger those living in the house. A roofing job may sound complicated, but it’s actually all in a day’s work for roofing pros. If you’ve never had a roof replacement done in the past, there may be several questions swirling in your mind: How long will it take? How much does it cost? Can I live in the house during the job?

As a first-timer, there are certain things that you should know in order to make the process as smooth as possible.

How Loud is Roof Replacement?

A word of warning: every roofing project is messy and noisy. There will be debris and dust all over, and although the crew will do their best to clean up every day, you should expect the site to be a mess while the project is in progress.

There may also be delays caused by the weather because this is an outdoor job. In short, a roofing job in Louisville is not without inconvenience. So can you live in the house while the work is going on? You definitely can, if you aren’t bothered by the noise and the mess. But a better idea is to move to somewhere close by when work is underway, especially if you have pets and children.

The noise can also cause anxiety in animals and cause them to panic. If you’re going to be uncomfortable with the mess and the noise, or if pets and children can make it hard for the contractors to do their job safely, you should consider moving for a few days.

However, even if you leave your house, always be available on the phone and also be present at the site to check if the work is going as planned.
