We’re so glad you chose White Castle Roofing to take care of your home roofing needs. To help everything run more smoothly, we’ve put together some tips and information that will keep us all on the same page. Of course, if you ever have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us and we’ll get your questions answered and needs addressed right away.
WHAT TO DO
Once your roof has been scheduled, these simple preparation tips can help make for a smoother experience for everyone:
- Remove valuable items like photos or decorative vases from your walls and yard. While we take care to protect your property, rare accidents do happen during the shingle drop-off and roofing process. Keeping your valuables out of the yard or off the walls can help take further steps to protect them.
- Mow your lawn. This can help in the clean-up process to make sure that no roofing debris is hidden in the grass.
- Make sure your car is out of the garage and the driveway is clear on the day your roof is scheduled. The containter to dispose of your old shingles will generally be placed in your driveway early in the morning of your scheduled work, so having your car out of the garage will ensure you still have access to leave once the container has been delivered. It will be removed the next business day after your roof is completed.
- Make sure power is accessible to the outside of your house. If an outlet is only available in the garage, please leave the door open, or provide an access code. If any inside switches need to be turned on to provide power to an outdoor outlet, please make sure they are on. If no power is available, please let us know in advance so that other preparations may be made to provide it.
