Roofing demolition is an undeniably dangerous procedure, requiring lots of equipment and safety precautions every step of the way.
Despite the danger, it’s something that every residence must go through every 20 to 30 years depending on the materials used. Even if the roof is not worn out or damaged, many people decide to update the look of their home by starting with the roof.
No matter the reason, it is imperative to plan out the process from start to finish before beginning.
Here are some of the guidelines to follow:
- First, choose a reliable and experienced roofing contractor. A professional assessment will determine what materials need to be replaced, what materials should be used for the new roof, how long the whole project will take, and what local and state permits are required to complete the project.
- Next, take an honest look at your budget. Your roofing contractor should be able to give you a rough estimate of the cost of different materials and the labor to install them, but it may not be immediately apparent what is needed on the layers that are not observable prior to the start of demolition. Take into account that some of the cost of equipment needed to haul away all the old roofing materials for recycling or upcycling will also need to be included.
- Block off some time. It can take a while to source all the materials needed to demolish and replace a roof, and the weather may be a factor as well. Additionally, it is important to be able to hire expert roofers to make sure the job is done right. All this can take time to pull together.
