A roofing installation project involves a complex process that requires an experienced, professional roofing contractor. Roofing installation can be pretty messy as it involves tearing off your old roof before installing the new one. For this reason, you’ll need to take a few measures to protect your lawn.
In this article, Fine Design Builders shares some tips to keep your lawn (and your sanity) intact during a roofing installation.
Tip #1: Consult With Your Roofer
Reputable roofing companies and tile contractors have preparation and cleanup policies in place to minimize the mess on every project they undertake. Make sure that your chosen contractor is as dedicated to protecting your property as they are to installing your new roof. Confirm that the roofing crew will take extra measures to protect your lawn during the installation.
Tip #2: Protect Your Garden
If you have any fragile plants or trees in your yard, you’ll want to take measures to protect them. You can place bins or boxes over flower beds. For trees that need protection, talk to your contractor in advance to make them aware. You can also tie a ribbon around any trees that need special care.
Tip #3: Get Your Tarps Ready
Lay down tarps and blankets over the grassy areas of your lawn as well as over your outdoor tubs or pools. The purpose of the tarps is to catch any errant nails, roofing shingles and other debris from the installation. This will make cleanup a little bit easier.
Tip #4: Use Plywood
Cover your driveway with protective plywood to keep the pavement dent-free throughout the installation project.
