Home Roof Replacement: What to Expect When You’ve Hired Bond Roofing

A roof is a considerable expense for any homeowner. If you’re hiring a Raleigh roofer, you want to make sure you find one you can trust. And, of course, you want to know what to expect in the process. Here is what happens when you hire us and what to expect the day we come to your home to replace your roof. 

After You Hire Us

Congratulations! You’ve chosen an excellent roofing team. Now what? Once you’ve chosen Bond Roofing, our project managers will help you schedule your roof replacement. Most residential roof replacements take two to three days. Fun fact: We remove more than three tons of materials when doing the average roof replacement. 

e tend to schedule a week or so in advance. Our team members will coordinate with you to select a time for your schedule. But remember, you don’t have to be home if you prefer us to work on your house while you’re gone.

Rainy Weather 

We can work most of the year in North Carolina. We may delay your project’s start if the temperature is too low, but we’ll let you know. 

However, rain is one thing we can’t work through. After all, you don’t want rain coming into your house or attic. We check the forecast daily, and we’ll let you know if we need to postpone your roof work. 

In some cases, we may reschedule if it will rain only during part of a two-day job. However, when we work on a roof, we only remove as much as we know we can replace that same day, so you’re covered even if the job takes a few days. 

What Happens on Roofing Day 

So you’re all set and today’s the day. What will happen? 

On your roofing day, our site project manager will come out to get things started. During the first few hours, you’ll see crews setting up a Dumpster and organizing the materials. A crew leader is on-site at all times, and you can speak to him if you have questions. 

Our workday usually begins at 8 a.m. We finish by 6 p.m., but we might work later if we’re expecting bad weather so we can wrap or prepare your roof. 

You don’t have to be at home. If you work from home, you might want to vacate for the day because it is noisy and messy. Please keep your pets and children away from the worksite. You might want to let your neighbors know you’re having work done so they can prepare for the noise. 

Please provide or do the following:  

  • Access to power for our tools.
  • Access to your driveway (if applicable) and part of your yard. We can only store our equipment on hard surfaces such as a driveway. 

We do our best to work safely and cleanly and protect your home. But please help us by doing the following: 

  • Cover valuables in your attic. They might get dusty as we work. 
  • Remove hanging plants, garden art, patio furniture, and grills. We can move some things, but let us know if you have any special lighting, statues, or items near the roofline that cannot be moved or may cause problems. 
  • Check your wall hangings. Roofing work may cause vibrations in the walls of your home. 
  • Cover your hot tub or pool. 
  • Call your satellite dish provider. We will need to remove your roof-mounted dish. We can reinstall it in the same location, but we cannot re-align it. 
  • Remove your gutter guards. We cannot be held responsible for damage to them.
  • Remove window screens. We protect them as best we can, but we cannot be held responsible for rips or other damage. 

Our site manager will give you an update on the project as we get close to finish. When we’re done, we’ll clean up and remove all debris. 

If you have questions not answered here about working with our roofing team, let us know.
