How to prepare for roof tarp

Your roof repair needs should be handles by an experienced roofing contractor with the right equipment. However, there are things that can be done by do-it-your-selfers while you wait. Still, a roofing company expert would perform these tasks for you or advise on action that need be taken, has proper safety equipment, and insurance. We [again] do not advise anyone to take any action outside of reasonable safety measures before calling an expert, but you may:

  • Precious attic items: We often overlook items stored in the attic. Be sure to any remove valuable items that could otherwise suffer damage from water or falling debris
  • Post process dust cleanup: Lay down paint floor sheets in the attic to make the dust cleanup easier after the roof install or repair.
  • If you’re garage roof is attached: Setup interior tarps to protect falling shingles or dust from scratching precious items in your attached garage
  • Prevent window scratching: Cover windows to prevent scratching during this process
  • Remove wall decorations: Remove paintings and other wall hung decorative items that could be shaken loose while workers hammer away above
  • Don’t break out the fine china: Your most fragile items need to be put away somewhere safe and covered to prevent falling damage or scratching to themselves and any physical harm to you.
