Making a Plan for Your New Roof

Replacing your roof can seem to be a daunting task but, if you follow a plan before during and after roof installation, you may find it to be much simplier than you imagined.

Follow a plan for new roof installation:

  • Choose a contractor who is established in your community with both experience and reputation. -- In this case the best roofing contractor to select is naturally CL Frey Construction
  • Talk to your roofing contractor abut any future home improvement project you plan to undertake (if any), since they may affect how your roofing contractor approaches your roofing project.  As an example, if you are planning on adding additional insulation to your attic after the replacement, this may affect ventlation. A good roofer will accomodate for that if they know ahead of time.
  • When your roofing contractor visits your home before beginning your new roof, ask questions.  There are no stupid questions.  CL Frey Construction needs to know that you completely understand the roofing process and what you can expect.
  • Select your shingles by considering cost, durability, style, color and what the weather is like in your area.
  • New roofing can be expensive.  Knowing your budget and roof financing options will help you choose the right roofing products.

5 Tips to Protect Your Home During Roof Installation 

  • Clear the areas around work areas.  Things like patio furniture, toys and grills should be removed to protect them from any fallen debris and for the safety of the roofers who will be working diligently to replace your roof in a timely manner.
  • Cars should also be put out of harms way.  Any visitors coming to your home should be aware of construction and urged to also park clear of the roofing construction.  Our roofers keep debris contained but just one small incident will ruin everyone's day. 
  • On the top floor of your home, you may want to secure hanging pictures, mirrors and such.
  • Roofing is loud work.  You may want to find time away from home to avoid the annoyance.  Remember that your pets may also be affected by noise.
  • Landscaping and flower beds around the roof construction area should be covered with a tarp or plastic to protect them against any debris.

Complete the Roofing Process

  • Walk your home's parimeter with your contractor to get a full description of the completed work.  Look at the details and if you have any additional concerns, now is the time to address them.
  • Your roofer should have used a magnet sweeper to remove any loose nails. If you see any loose nails on your property, ask them to re-sweep the yard.
  • Check your gutters, patios and landscaping for debris.  Your roof contractor will take care of all roofing debris.
  • Check landscaping, gutters, patios and the driveway for other debris—your contractor can help with clean up here, too.

Protect your new investment now and into the future by getting these documents in writing:

  •  A building permit
  • A written work contract and proof that your roofing project will be covered under the contractor's insurance policy.
  • A copy of your manufacturer warranty — be sure to review it before you have any future work done (even an inspection).
