When you pay for a service, clearly you’d be expecting a job well done, but this also includes quality aftercare, for instance, cleaning up after any work is done. A roof replacement project can be messy, but there is no reason that your yard can’t be left in the same, if not better, condition than before the work began.
At Polaris Roofing Systems, we treat your home as we treat your roofing project, with a high standard of care.
Here are a few things that you should expect from a company when they clean up after a roofing job.
Clear The Debris
It sounds simple, but too many companies don’t do this to a high standard.
There are a lot of small pieces that can fall from the roof during any construction work, and with the likes of nails, sharp shingles, as well as decking edge, you will want to ensure that the company doing the job cleans up properly.
One complaint about non-reputable companies is that their roofers leave nails in the yard, which is hazardous and unprofessional.
Making It Easy On Themselves
A lot of mess can be avoided by taking some simple steps before the work is started.
Keeping a dumpster nearby makes cleaning up as you go along easy. Also, placing tarpaulin on the ground underneath the construction area makes it easy for a lot of debris to be removed.
Careful roofing companies will also use magnets as they go around the property after a job.
This is an extra layer of safety that they take to make sure the yard is free from nails. Attention to detail is everything in the roofing process, as well as in the cleanup.
Due Care of The Greenery
If there are shrubs around the general area that roofing work is being undertaken, then extra care should be taken for them as well as any plants, and grassy areas.
If for any reason, plants or grassy areas are affected by the work, then the company should act to ensure they are returned to a condition that is suitable.
Of course, accidents are not uncommon when more extensive work is being undertaken on the home. Roofers are only human, and there is a degree of heavy lifting involved. If you notice anything untoward, then be sure to mention it before the job is complete.
Don’t Be Afraid To Ask
A good company will be easily approachable, so asking for the roofer to do a final check around the property should not be a problem.
If the roofers left a mess, be sure to let them know about it!
Only once you are satisfied with the work and the condition of your home and yard should you sign off on the job.
Roofing is a highly skilled, but sometimes messy job. At Polaris Roofing Systems, we want to put your mind at ease. When work is ongoing, it might look as though your home isn’t going to be the same, but we won’t leave until the area is in excellent condition.
