Reasons To Stay Home During Roof Install

Is your roof in dire need of a replacement? Are shingles falling off with the slightest gush of wind? If that’s the case, you’re probably looking to move temporarily while contractors install your new roof. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to relocate during roof replacement. In fact, there are a few perks that come with staying at home. Let’s look at a few.

1. Monitor the Progress

If you stay at home during the installation process, you can check up on the contractors’ progress and consult with the project supervisor. After all, you have invested a lot in the house, so you’ll want to stay on top of how the project is coming along. Let’s suppose you do move elsewhere during roof installation. In this case, you won’t have any choice but to consult your roofing contractor to get updates on the project’s progress. Yes, some companies may have applications that allow clients to keep up with the project’s status, but there is a chance some contractors will not be cooperative.

2. Issues Can Be Addressed Immediately

With a renowned roofing company, you stand a good chance that they won’t bother you with irrelevant changes, and everything will go as expected. Then again, issues can arise over the course of the few days that contractors install your roof. Staying at home gives you all the more opportunities to address problems on the spot. Otherwise, if you are away from the location, then it’s possible that workers will progress without your input, so when you do find an issue, it’ll be too late. In this case, staying at your home will save you time and effort down the line.

3. Cost-Effective

When homeowners plan to live elsewhere during the roof replacement process, they factor in the cost of accommodation, which increases the overall price of replacing their roof. This causes many homeowners to put off replacements. And let’s say you’re a big family; how much do you expect it to cost?  Staying at home during the process makes roof replacement much more budget-friendly than if you temporarily lived elsewhere.

4. Peace of Mind

If you’re hiring a professional, you probably won’t worry much about your personal property or other possessions. Nevertheless, the thought of not being at home while strangers move about your house can make you nervous. If you’re someone who needs to keep an eye on their things to have peace of mind, it’s best to stay home.
