Moving Out Of Your Home During A Roof Replacement

Whether moving out of one’s home during a roof replacement project is necessary or not is a common question, particularly among new homeowners. So, is it necessary?

Is Moving Out Required?

The short answer is that moving out while a roof is being replaced is not normally required for homeowners. There certainly are pros and cons for each side of the argument so what it really comes down to is choosing which option will serve your needs and lifestyle best.

Why Move Out?

If you don’t like having a lot of people around or if you’d rather not be at home after an especially severe weather occurrence in your area, you should move out during roof replacement. Just keep lines of communication open with your contractors so they can reach you if they have questions. Verify that everything your roofers need is available so they can complete their job without a problem. Note that it is especially important to work with a trusted roofing company with whom you can leave your home without any worries.

What if You Can’t Move Out?

If staying at home is your only option, talk to your contractor so you can plan accordingly. You can ask to limit roofing work to be done during the hours when everyone is out of the home. If you have small children to consider or if you work from home, pick the quietest space possible for you to stay in during the day, away from distractions. What’s great about being at home during such a time, though, is that your contractor can easily communicate with you if any concerns come up while your roof is being replaced.
