A roof repair or an installation job is one of the biggest projects any homeowner could ever take on, often affecting a large portion of the house while it happens. The area that could shoulder the brunt of potential damage would be your yard and garden. Between contractors moving around your property and materials being transported from one place to another, keeping your garden intact during a roof installation can be challenging.
A good roofing contractor will always take extra care to minimize the damage that their work might leave behind. Still, it’s important to take measures to protect your prized rose bushes against potential problems. Here are a few tips from our experts at Masters Roofing on how to keep your yard and garden safe during a roof installation:
Take a moment to do a quick visual inspection of your home before your roofing and general contractor arrives. Photograph and document what your garden looks like, taking extra care of the areas that you want to keep safe the most. As your contractor arrives, walk around the home and tell him any special instructions you might have to make sure your garden is not damaged as much as possible.
Cover them Up
Use a tarp to cover up flowering shrubs and bushes around your home. Roof installations can drop a lot of dust and debris that could get on your plants and landscaping. A tarp can help make cleanup faster and easier, as well as protect your yard from any damage.
Give Roofers Enough Space
Your roof replacement professionals will have a “flow” for materials coming in and out of your property, that is a path they will take to move around the project site. Remove anything you don’t want to be damaged away from this “flow” and place trash and disposal bins along their path to help them keep the worksite clean during the construction.
