Reroofing Preparation


  1. Notify your mortgage and insurance companies the day your roofing job begins. This will expedite the inspection and payment processes.

  2. 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.

  3. When shingles are delivered to your home, please check the color. Notify Evans & Horton Roofing immediately if the color is not what you ordered.

  4. Remove all loose items from wall shelves and walls: pictures, plates, figurines. Hammering may create vibrations that shake these items off of shelves and walls.

  5. Do not loan your tools or equipment to the roofers.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.Check heater vents upon completion of your roof to make sure that they haven’t 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Keep small children and pets away from the work area.

  13. 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.

  14. Make all payments to Evans & Horton Roofing. Please do not pay in cash and do not make checks payable to salesmen.
