Let's take a look at some of the benefits of staying at home during roof repair so you can make an informed decision. We'll also explore some of the drawbacks. If you have someone to stay with without incurring any additional costs, such as a neighbor on the same street, then that's great. That way, you can still reap some of the advantages of staying close to home without all the negatives.
When it comes to roofing companies, it's important to take your time and choose the right one. Make sure you get references, review their past work and get recommendations from people you know. This way, you can trust that the team is reliable. Staying at home during roof replacement may be more convenient than having to take all your stuff somewhere else for a while, get away from work and put up with other inconveniences.
If you can endure some of the inconvenience of being at home during the roof replacement, many of the other aspects of your life will not have to change much. A self-respecting roofing company will take special care to ensure that it does not cause any inconvenience during the time of replacement. Regardless of whether you need to repair the roof or replace it, this is a fairly extensive home improvement project that takes time to schedule, good weather and money. So, do you need to move while the new roof is being installed or while a roof repair is being done? The simple answer is no.
Replacing a roof in an average detached house will only require a few days of time. Typically, the time period for a complete roof replacement is between two and three days; however, it can usually be done in less than a week as long as there are no serious weather incidents or the need for major repairs. Most professional roofers work during the week when most people are at school and work, so there is minimal disruption in daily activities. However, if you're sensitive to noise or have pets that are easily disturbed by loud noises, it's best to leave your house while the roof is being replaced.
Don't be like me and listen to people online who say “it's not that bad” - it is that bad! My dog went crazy when someone was making loud knocking noises in her space. Bad weather and a good homeowners insurance policy can help you get a significant discount on your roof repair or replacement. In Phoenix, we have monsoons which are very strong windstorms that lift up a lot of dirt, debris and dust. Evaporative coolers are also common in Phoenix because they are cheaper to run than air conditioners but are less effective and make the air very humid.
It's also important to remove any photo or photo frame from your walls before the roofers arrive as they may fall off due to vibrations from the work being done. Additionally, if someone crashes through your ceiling during repairs or replacements, make sure an HVAC person goes out and fixes it and checks that the pipe isn't damaged. In conclusion, staying at home during roof replacement has its benefits such as convenience and supervision of work being done by professionals. However, if you're sensitive to noise or have pets that are easily disturbed by loud noises, it's best to leave your house while the roof is being replaced.
