Can You Live In Your Home During Your NH Roof Replacement?
Can You Stay In Your New Hampshire Home During A Roof Replacement?
When Starting Your Roof Installation, There Are Some Things To Consider
Many New Hampshire homeowners wonder what the logistics of a roof replacement are – how long it will take, how messy it will be, and whether you can live in your home during the roofing project. These are great questions and valid concerns before starting such a big project.
When getting a roof replacement, you can certainly still stay at home. However, you should be told in advance that there will be some annoyances to keep in mind. Depending on your schedule and willingness to endure these nuisances, you can weigh the pros and cons and decide what will work best for you and your family.
What Are The Annoyances During A Roof Replacement?
The most apparent annoyance during a roof replacement will probably be the noise. Again, this factor will vary depending on the homeowner and the household. If you work at home or are in your home throughout the day, the sounds may start to get to you.
You’ll hear many noises, from hammering to sawing to nail guns. Because the noises are mostly from overhead, they will probably sound amplified in your home. If you live in a two-story house or more, these sounds will be much more muffled while staying on the first floor.
Other obstacles to expect are several roofing technicians at work and more vehicles on the street. However, all our installers at Jancewicz & Son are professional and work hard to respect your space and time. Plus, we always clean up thoroughly after ourselves, so you won’t need to worry about discarded shingles and debris littering your yard.
The noises and other minor nuisances may even seem relentless at times, but you can rest assured they mean your roof is coming along! You should be fine if you work out of the house or if noises don’t bother you much.
When Should You Leave Your Home During A Roof Replacement?
Finding a local coffee shop or an outside quiet place to work for a few days might be more appealing if you work from home. Roofing installers will only work during daylight hours, so you should be safe returning home in the evening.
All families are different, so if you have babies, small children, or elderly persons who need naps or quiet time, staying at home during a roof replacement might not be a great idea. For your sanity, you may find it helpful to look for another place to stay during the day.
Also, if you work the night shift or hours that require you to sleep or rest during the day, you will most likely want to find a place of peace and quiet outside your home. Unfortunately, for the safety of roofing crews and noise ordinances, they can only work during daylight hours.
Pets can also pose an issue when staying at home during a roof replacement, so depending on your animal’s temperament, you might want to consider an alternative. The noises and other new experiences may unsettle your pet. Boarding your pet or temporarily leaving your home with your pet in tow might sound more appealing.
How Long Will A Roof Replacement Take?
The amount of time a roof replacement will depend on a few factors, including the size of your roof, weather, and more. At Jancewitz and Son, we stay mindful of your time, trying to complete our roofing projects quickly without sacrificing quality.
This means most roofing projects can take anywhere from 1-7 days. Before your project starts, you’ll receive an estimate of the time frame, learn our working hours, and have an opportunity to ask any questions you need. We want you to stay informed throughout your whole process, ensuring you are back in the comfort of your home in no time.
For example, if you’re getting a roof installment or replacement on an addition or a garage, your job will likely only take a couple of days. On the other hand, if you’re getting a full roof replacement, the project might take as long as a week or more.
