When we handle a roof project we remove the existing layer of shingles. We will place tarps on the ground around your home to catch falling debris and to protect your yard. There will be a thorough clean up of the exterior of your premises, however, we can only pick up approximately 97% of the nails that fall around your home. We use a large magnet to pick up as many nails as possible. It is a good idea to cut your grass very short the day before installation, because the magnetic rollers do not do the job properly in deep grass.
Your Contract prices are determined utilizing access to the driveways for our trucks, as well as electricity. If exterior plugs are not available, please run an extension cord through a window or door.
Satellite Dish, Antennas & Solar Panels:
We cannot guarantee that your satellite dish will not need to be re-tuned after installation. Also, from time to time cable connections can be loosened during a roof installation. We are not responsible for this. Arrangements to remove and replace solar panels are the sole responsibility of the owner.
Light Fixtures, Mirrors, and Pictures:
These items can fall if not firmly attached to the wall or ceilings. We suggest that you check to make sure they are secured. If in doubt, take them down. Small cracks or crow’s feet may sometimes appear in older plaster and sometimes small particles of the acoustical ceilings may fall. We cannot assume responsibility of these items as a result of re-roofing.
Wiring & Air Conditioning Lines:
Electrical, telephone, security and air conditioning lines should not be installed directly underneath the roof deck. If you are aware of any such lines, we must be notified immediately. We cannot be responsible for the puncture of improperly installed lines or lines within three inches of the roof deck.
Trees & Shrubs:
If you have low hanging branches over your roof, some trimming may be necessary. Our men will only cut those limbs which limit our ability to do an efficient job. In some cases, you may prefer to have the tree or trees trimmed by professionals before we begin our job.
At the end of each work day and upon completion of your job, please check the interior connections of your heater and hot water heater vent pipes.
Left Over Material:
Our proposals are based on a complete job. Any leftover materials belong to us unless otherwise stated in your contract. Generally we send more materials to the job site than is estimated to make sure the crews do not come up short. In addition, our crews carry some extra materials with them. Even though it may appear that you had some extra material left over, that may not be the case.
You may notice “lumpy” or uneven shingles. These will lie down flat once the sun has had time to heat them. Inspect your roof from the ground before we come to observe natural sags or high points in decking. These are generally not structural concern and they will look the same after we re-roof your home. Rafters, decking, and houses settle over time creating these imperfections. If we discover a bad or rotten sheet of decking, we will replace as indicated in your contract.
