If the roof that has served your home so well for years has started to show signs of aging and you are in the process of preparing for the replacement, here are the steps that you should follow:
- Call a certified Lakewood EPDM roofer – find a reliable and knowledgeable roofer who has experience with the type of roofing that you have and schedule a roof inspection. Discuss your possibilities in terms of materials, costs, longevity, warranty and waste disposal, then ask the roofer to provide a written cost estimate. It is a good idea to get the roof inspected by several roofers and to compare their estimates to optimize the costs;
- Prepare your home and your landscape – the roofing process is likely to generate lots of debris, dust as well as traffic through your yard and garden. Remove every fragile object and furnishing items from your outdoor space, remove or cover the items that you store in your attic and take precaution measures to protect your valuables inside your home, too. Be aware that roofing replacement involves the usage of high-capacity machines that cause vibrations in the walls, so remove the pictures and decorations from your walls and put them somewhere where they are safe.
