Roofers have access to your roof

The North Myrtle Beach roofing contractor that you hire must have access to your roof in order to complete the job.

Clearing sidewalks and driveways is also necessary to protect your outdoor items and ensure that roofing contractors work efficiently. To protect vehicles and other items from falling dust, you should move them away from your driveway as soon as possible.

Keep Valuables in the Attic

Experienced roofing contractors will work hard to minimize the dust and debris created by the roof installation. It is clear that roofing can be messy and dusty.

Make arrangements for children and pets

Be a good neighbor

It is also a good idea to let your neighbors know that you will be having people work on your house. You should be aware that installing a new roof can be noisy and messy, which could cause disturbances to your neighbors, especially if you have children or pets.
