Due to the amount of work that needs to be done during a roofing project, your home’s outdoor areas can become dirty and messy. Old materials, such as nails and shingles, would be removed. These things could end up on your lawn, patio or garden beds or cause damage to surfaces.
To ensure your garden and home exterior are protected during the entire roofing process, make sure to follow these tips from the experts at Thompson Roofing and Construction.
Determine the Areas or Items That Needs Protection
Have a look at your home’s exterior and outdoor areas. Note the things that would require protection while your new roof is being installed. Typically, these would be your swimming pool, vegetable garden, play areas, flower beds, etc. Make sure to cover these areas before your contractor starts working on your roof.
Cover Your Lawn Using Tarps
You can use tarps to cover up your yard and protect it from falling debris. Smaller plants near the work area should also be covered. You can ask your roofing contractor if they would be able to provide tarps. Otherwise, you would have to ensure you have enough tarps to cover all the areas that need to be protected. Additionally, make sure to check wind forecasts to know if you’ll be needing to secure your tarps.
Place the Trash Bin at a Good Spot
Find a good spot for the trash bin so that the roofers can throw old roofing materials and construction waste in an efficient manner. Oftentimes, the driveway is an ideal location for the trash bin. If you will be placing the bin in your driveway, make sure your driveway is also protected. You can use plywood sheets to keep the area safe from dents, scrapes or other kinds of damage.
