- Notify your mortgage and insurance
companies the day your roofing job begins.
This will expedite the inspection and
- Be prepared for the noise! There will
be constant hammering for one or more
days, depending on the size of your roof.
You may want to plan a day away from
the house while the job is in progress.
- When shingles are delivered to your
home, please check the color. Notify
Evans & Horton Roofing immediately if
the color is not what you ordered.
- Remove all loose items from wall shelves
and walls: pictures, plates, figurines.
Hammering may create vibrations that
shake these items off of shelves and
- Do not loan your tools or equipment
to the roofers.
- Remove all items from around the house
where roofing debris or bundles of shingles
might fall: patio and pool furniture,
potted plants, gardening equipment, and
grills. Leaves or blooms may be knocked
off plants near your home during the
job. We try to protect the plants but
many times the layout of the landscape
prevents us from doing so.
- Precautions are taken to prevent gutter
damage. However, there are instances
when damage to gutters is unavoidable,
especially on very steep roofs or ones
that are completely surrounded by gutters
or homes with rusted gutters. Your homeowners
insurance should cover any damage.
- Check heater vents upon completion
of your roof to make sure that they havent
become loose in the attic. Also check
hot water heater and stove vents. The
roofer will do this for you if allowed
access to your attic.
- Occasionally, we will use power tools
to cut decking or shingles. When we do
so, please check your power breakers
and outside electrical outlets to make
sure they are operating correctly.
- For each day it rains, work on your
roof will be delayed. Evans and Horton
roofers are instructed not to tear off
more shingles than they can replace in
one day so that your roof is not exposed
to inclement weather.
- We will need access to your driveway
to load shingles and clean up. Please
park your cars, motorcycles, bicycles,
boats, etc, out of the driveway/garage.
- Keep small children and pets away from
the work area.
- Nails that fall from the roof during
the job will be picked up with a magnetic
nail roller. We will make every effort
to pick up all nails. Please be advised;
however, that a few nails, hidden in
the grass or shrubbery, may remain.
- Make all payments to Evans
& Horton Roofing. Please
do not pay in cash and do not make
checks payable to salesmen.
you - it is nice to be abl to trust
people to do what they say they will
