The contractor in charge of your roofing service will agree on a time that works for you and your family, you don’t have to be present, but it doesn’t hurt if you are. They’ll also take care of any necessary building permits, so you don’t have to be worried about being charged fines.

Before a new roof is installed, the roofing company will have to carefully uninstall all your old roofing materials to preserve the integrity of the new one for a long time. After uninstalling the old one, they’re able to install new ones.
Before the installation, you have to move your vehicles away from the house, so the roofing company will park their equipment very near the house, which makes it easy to do their jobs fast.
Move patio furniture and toys. They can become tripping hazards or be damaged when roofing materials fall on them. You should also keep your children and pets out of the way and prune your trees ahead of time if you have any.
