Roof restorations. Don’t sound like the most exciting thing ever, do they? But you know what is exciting? A crisp new look for your home and increased property value – just two of the perks that come with roof restoration.

Preparing your home is important to get the most out of your roof restoration. And don’t worry – it’s not going to be one of those situations where you clean the whole house before the cleaner arrives!

Preparing for a roof restoration involves a few simple, quick tasks that take little effort, but increase efficiency of the whole process. Here, the team at Royce Roofing explain how to prepare your home for roof restoration:

Consider your children and pets

Young children and pets are often curious about what’s going on up on the roof when your roofing team is performing a restoration – but be mindful that they should be kept inside when the magic is happening! While the chances are low, there’s always a risk of a broken tile slipping off the roof and falling onto the ground, which is why we keep the area clear.

Remove your cars

The last thing we’d want is for your precious baby to get hurt during a roof restoration! That’s why we ask all homeowners to park their cars off the street or in the garage, and not on the driveway, during a roof restoration. We do this to prevent dirt and debris from landing on your car during the high-pressure cleaning of your roof.

Place outdoor furniture and equipment under cover

The same goes for your nice outdoor patio furniture… our job is to give your roof a makeover, not the rest of your home! Place your outdoor furniture out of the way of the potential blast zone, or cover it in tarps to prevent it getting dirty.

Prune back obstructive trees

If you want to be super helpful, you can prune back any obstructive trees that block access to your roof. This will let your roof restoration team work faster because they’ll have easier roof access and won’t have to be as mindful of navigating tree safety.

Be mindful of the weather

Look, we all know what Melbourne weather is like. Sure, the forecast says stuff… but it’s rarely accurate! Just be mindful that Melbourne weather can be unpredictable and, sadly, it can slow down your roof restoration. Being mentally prepared for this possibility is much appreciated.
