Unlike roof repairs, a roof replacement can take longer to complete. As it’s a home improvement project that can disrupt your daily routine, it’s understandable if you want to know everything you can about roof replacements. One of the things that you should know about is the timeline so you’ll know what to expect on certain weeks or days before, during, and after the replacement project..
Here’s the typical timeline for a roof replacement project.
Before Installation Day
On the days leading up to replacement day, you can expect your roofing company to deliver a dumpster to your home. If you have plans of recycling your old asphalt shingles, you can expect a secondary dumpster to be delivered as well. Apart from the dumpsters, you can also expect them to deliver your new asphalt shingles to your home a few days before the project commences.
During the installation day, meanwhile, you can now work with your contractors on taking the appropriate measures to protect your property. Similar to roof repairs, before the project really starts, you can ask them to help you store your lawn furniture and to cover your flowers and shrubbery to protect them from debris. Make sure the gates are also open for your contractors so they can come and go as they please with equipment but ask them to close it behind them as well.
After your roof has been replaced, you can expect your roofers to do a final walkthrough of the roof with you. That way, you can determine if everything was done according to your specifications or if there’s anything they missed. Afterwards, they’ll also do a final sweep of your yard for loose nails or debris.
A Few Days After Installation Day
A few days after installation day, the roofing company will send someone to pick up the dumpster as well as a representative to collect the final payment for the roofing project.
