Atlanta Roofing Guide wants your new roof installation to be as smooth and hassle free as possible. Here is a Roofing Project Checklist to help make your experience a great one.
Before Construction Begins:
– To accept Atlanta Roofing Guide’s contract / proposal you may call, email, or fax confirmation of your acceptance of the Contract/Proposal.
– Upon your acceptance of the Contract/Proposal, roofing material color and additional options will be selected.
– Atlanta Roofing Guide will contact you to schedule your roof project and discuss delivery of the roofing materials and disposal container. PLEASE NOTE: The container and roofing material may obstruct your driveway. We suggest you park your vehicles outside the driveway until the project is complete and the container is removed.
Then you will…
– Remove wall hangings and breakable objects from shelves, as they could fall due to vibrations caused by hammering.
– Confine pets indoors or restrain away from house.
– Cover pools and spas.
– Bring outdoor potted plants indoors or move a safe distance away.
– Park vehicles a safe distance from the house.
– Disarm burglar alarm, as vibrations may activate it.
– Move outdoor lawn furniture to a safe area of lawn.
– Please do not run sprinklers the night before, or during installation.
– Cover objects in attic and garage, if it has no ceiling.
– When shingles are delivered to your home, please check and verify color.
– We will need access to your driveway to load shingles and clean up, please keep your driveway clear.
– The roofing crew will need to be provided with a source of electricity and water.
– There will be nails and debris around the house and driveway. Please walk carefully and do not drive on driveway.
– When entering or leaving your home, exercise caution. Debris and other objects may fall from the roof.
– Please keep pets and children away from the work area.
– On wood roof tear off please expect small amounts of dirt, dust, and shingle debris to fall into your attic space. You may choose to cover boxes or valuables with plastic or sheets. Roofing crews do not clean up attic debris.
– For each day it threatens rain or snow work on your roof will be delayed. Roofers on the job are instructed not to tear off more shingles than they can replace or dry-in with felt in one day.
– Your roofing contractor is not responsible for nail pops in ceiling sheet-rock and damage to hidden AC or electrical lines that are too close to the substrate since they would not have been installed per building code.
– Your roofing contractor is not responsible for HVAC pipes that come loose or disconnected from units or water heaters due to improper installation by HVAC or plumbing contractors.
– Check to make sure all gates are closed before letting pets outside.
– Watch for overlooked nails. Nails that fall from the roof during the job will be picked up with a magnetic nail roller. Your roofing contractor will make every effort to pick up all nails. Please be advised that a few nails hidden in the grass, rocks or shrubbery may remain.
– Please leave permits posted until the city performs final inspection, if applicable.
– Check furnace and hot water vents to insure that they are connected at the units, as they may loose or disconnected when the new vents are installed.
