Top residential and custom metal roofing installer Arrowhead Roofing shares some thoughts on whether or not homeowners should move out during a roof replacement, as well as what should be done to help keep everything running smoothly–on their side and yours.
The Short Answer
There’s no requirement for you to leave your home as your roof is being repaired or replaced. Certain preparations need to be made either way, but as long as you have a trustworthy contractor assisting you, the entire roof replacement process should run fairly smoothly.
If your home requires storm damage roof repair or replacement from Arrowhead Roofing and you decide that you’d rather move out while your home is still in bad shape, make sure to discuss your preference with your contractor right from the beginning. Details like how your roofers can access the power supply when they need to should be ironed out before you leave. You’ll also have to keep a line of communication open in case something urgent comes up and your approval becomes necessary for your contractor to be able to carry out their job.
Not Moving Out
If you prefer to stay in your home while your roof is being replaced, let your contractor know this too. If you’re unaccustomed to having construction work going on around you, you can opt to stay out while the work is being done and come home as the workers are ending for the day. If you work out of your home, pick the quietest spot you can find and make that your temporary office. You’ll also have the benefit of speaking to your installers face-to-face whenever you need to.
