Over the years as a roofing contractor in the Montgomery and Central Alabama area, we have compiled a preparation for re-roofing document that delineates a few tips which property owners should review before the start of their roofing installation.
- Properly secure any loose or fragile items. This mainly applies to items hung on walls, sitting in cabinets or on shelves. This will protect said items from vibrations from roofers and material during the re-roof process. It is the homeowners responsibility to remove any items inside the house that could be damaged while the work is being completed.
- Please allow us to access electrical outlets during the installation process. This allows us to install the roof quieter because we are not running generators on the property - Neighbors really appreciate this one.
- Keep children and pets indoors during the installation. The backyard is usually safe for pets provided they can stay at least 20 feet from the house. If anyone must pass underneath the work to access the house during installation, please be aware for nails and falling debris.
- Please offer our technicians the right of way. Try not to park in the drive-way and stay clear of the roof perimeter. Though we’ll protect the vehicle as best we can, all vehicles parked in the construction area will be the responsibility of the owner.
- Guyette Roofing is not responsible for pre-existing structural defects which may be exposed as a result of standard roofing practices. This includes settling cracks in paint and drywall as well as uneven framing, decking, or fascia. Also, while we are very good at roofing, we are not magicians, our new roofing will following the contours of the roof. We’ll try to do the best we can within the scope of the project, however if there are depressions or low spots in the roof because of structural issues, they will more than likely still be there after the new roof is installed. These issues are very rare and are only present in about 1% of re-roofs.
- At no point during the installation should a homeowner climb up a Guyette Roofing ladder unless a Guyette employee has given permission.
- Before each job our supervisor will introduce himself. If at any time during the installation process you see an issue or have ANY question, ask the supervisor, that’s what he is there for.
