After scheduling a roof replacement, you may wonder whether you can stay in your home during the process. Ultimately, it’s up to you as the customer if you want to be home while your roof is replaced.

However, there are factors to consider if you do decide to stay home during a roof replacement. Keep reading as we discuss these factors so you can decide if it makes sense to stay in your home while the roof is being replaced.

Should You Stay Home During a Roof Replacement?

If you have hired an experienced roofing company like Perfect Exteriors, then it should only take one day to complete your roof replacement. With that being said, it is completely up to you as the homeowner if you want to be home during the process.

Some homeowners like to be home while their roof is being replaced in case the contractor has any questions. In addition, you might also have questions for the contractor, such as how long the project will take if they will be using any special materials, or if there are any safety concerns.

If you decide to stay home during a roof replacement, then there are a few things you should know. First off,  there will be a lot of noise due to hammering, footsteps, and other sounds. If you have young children or pets at home, then this can be disruptive to them.

If you have pets at home that have anxiety or are protective, then it may be better to make other arrangements for them while the roof replacement is being completed. In addition, if you work from home, you might want to wear headphones or go to a nearby cafe so the noise does not interrupt your productivity.

The other option is to wait at home until the roof specialists arrive so you can greet them. From there, you can make arrangements for the day and ask them to call you before they leave so you can check in on the progress.

How Long Does Replacing a Roof Take?

In most cases, Perfect Exteriors will have your roof replacement completed in one day. If it is a large residential home, then it may take two days. However, Perfect Exteriors has a large team of experienced roof installers that can quickly and efficiently complete the job.

After our team gives you a no-obligation estimate on your roof replacement, we will provide you with the estimated time of completion for the project. From there, you can make arrangements to be away for the day. On the other hand, you can choose to stay home while the roof replacement is being completed.

How Can Homeowners Know it’s Time For a New Roof?

Since Minnesota is notorious for harsh storms that cause damage, it’s only a matter of time before your roof will be replaced. But how do you know when your roof needs to be replaced?

There are some ways to identify if it’s time for a roof replacement. First, if you are finding pieces of shingles in your yard, that means your shingles are starting to wear down, and your roof will soon need to be replaced.

In addition, if you check your roof and see that there is apparent damage or your shingles are cracked or curling, then it is time for a roof replacement.

The best way to know if you need a roof replacement is by contacting Perfect Exteriors for a free roof inspection. We will be able to inspect your roof and evaluate whether or not roof replacement is necessary. From there, we will provide a no-obligation estimate and can schedule you for a roof replacement.

If your roof does need to be replaced, it’s best to do it as soon as possible in order to prevent any further damage.
