What to expect during the Re-Roof of your home:
Your home is a big investment and taking care of it is our priority. We would like to remind you that a roof replacement is the removal of a major structural component of your home. Did you know that when removing a roof there can be as much as 7000 pounds being removed and replaced? As in any big construction project, there are some risks.
Below is a list of tasks that will help us to make your roofing experience go more smoothly:
The following is a list of tasks that are recommended that you do prior to and during the job.
o Please park any cars you use daily on the street or at the end of the driveway closest to the street so they will not be blocked in during construction.
o Important: We will need to cover your air-conditioner unit in order to protect it from falling debris. Please do not run your air during the time the unit is covered to prevent damage to the unit.
o During the project we will need access to an outside live power source in order to use our equipment/tools.
o Please remove all items from the exterior perimeter of your home that might be in risk of being damaged from falling roof debris.
o Please mark any underground sprinkler nozzles that are within 20’ from the house with brightly colored stakes.
o Please cover all items in the attic with plastic. Small pieces of roof debris and dust may fall into the attic or through skylight openings and cannot be prevented. (Our bid does not include cleaning the attic.)
o Please remove any items from walls and shelving that might become dislodged from vibration and break.
We cannot be held responsible for any damage of personal items within the home.
o A dumpster or a large truck will be placed in close proximity to your home in-order to removing the existing debris from your old roof. Depending on the area you live in, the dumpster and/or truck will either be placed in the street, the alley or the driveway. We will always attempt to place this equipment as close to your home as possible. **Due to the scheduling of the refuse company, it may become necessary for a dumpster to remain before and/or after completion of the job for a short time.
o Please remember to keep all animals inside during working hours for the safety of your pet.
o Please be aware of nails around the home while the job is in progress and until our cleaning crew has gone over the area. (Nails in the grassy areas will be difficult to see and we cannot be held responsible if one is stepped on.)
What to be aware of during removal/and install of your new roof:
It is extremely rare, but the following is a list of items that may occur during the construction and Cottonwood Roofing Company cannot be held responsible for. We will to the best of our ability keep any of these items from occurring but feel it is our responsibility to forewarn you of the risks:
Possible cracks and nail pops in the sheet rock from vibration.
Minor damage to plants and shrubs.
Breakage of old, soft, or rotten siding during roof flashing installation.
Dents in existing gutters.
Shifting or breaking of rafters or walls due to the improper construction of home or aging of the home. It is the homeowners responsibility to have the integrity of the home checked if you are concerned due to age or construction.
Scuff marks on siding.
Marks or cracks in the driveway due to the weight of the delivery of roofing materials or dumpster.
Indentations in wood decks.
