     Getting a new roof installed on your house is a great way to update your home and improve curb appeal. It's not just about enhancing aesthetics but also ensuring the safety and longevity of your abode.

Here’s a simple outline of what you can expect in the days leading up to, during, and after your new roof installation, ensuring a seamless and satisfying experience for you and your home.

Before Installation: Preparing Your Home

The days leading up to the roof replacement are crucial for a hassle-free experience. First and foremost, be aware that vibrations can occur during the removal, loading of materials, and installation of your new roof. To safeguard your belongings, remove all breakable items from walls, ceilings, and cabinets. Clear your driveway the afternoon before the project starts to avoid getting trapped in the garage during construction. The driveway will be occupied by a dump truck and materials, making it inaccessible. If you require access, inform us in advance.

Your lawn should be cut short before installation day, making it easier to find the approximately 15,000 nails that will be removed from your roof. Remove outdoor hanging items like plants and wind chimes that could be damaged during the process. If you have specific landscaping you want to protect, point it out to us, and we will take extra care.

On the Day of Replacement: Managing the Process

On the actual day of the roof replacement, a few more steps are necessary to ensure the process goes smoothly. If your satellite dish or antenna is on your roof, it will be taken down. Remember to schedule its reinstallation promptly. Ensure that gates are unlocked, and pets are safely secured away from the work area. Alert your neighbors in advance about the excess noise and increased traffic around your home. A friendly message on your neighborhood group, perhaps on Facebook, can work wonders. Consider going out for the day and taking your pets with you to minimize stress.

If your home has HVAC lines installed under the roof deck, inform us in advance to avoid potential damage. Safety is our priority, and your cooperation is invaluable.

Upon Completion: Enjoying the Results

After the hard work of our roofing crew, your home will be transformed. On average, a new roof adds 5% more value to your property and enhances its curb appeal significantly. We take immense pride in our work, ensuring your complete satisfaction. Your positive feedback and recommendations mean the world to us, so please consider writing a review online to share your experience.

Understanding the Roofing Crew's Hard Work

We also want to highlight the extraordinary dedication of our roofing crew. They embark on a demanding job, working diligently all day on your roof. It’s essential to understand that they might take short breaks, including a lunch break, and find shade to rest under. If you happen to see them sitting, it doesn't mean they are not doing their job; they are resting. Roofing can be physically taxing, especially depending on the weather conditions, so these breaks are essential for their well-being and efficiency.

At Georgia Roof Advisors, we understand the importance of your home and aim to make the roof replacement process as smooth and efficient as possible. Trust us to protect your sanctuary and enhance its beauty, ensuring you enjoy a secure and aesthetically pleasing home for years to come.
