Should You Move Out of Your Home During a Roof Replacement?

If this is your first time investing in a roof replacement, then you should know it will be a messy and noisy process. There’s no helping it–your roofing system is one of the biggest components of your home. But with the right preparations, you can make the experience easier for you and your family. Some homeowners, in fact, even move out of their home temporarily until the work is done. But is it the right decision for you, as well? Polar Bear Exterior Solutions, the area’s trusted roofing contractor, answers that here.



Moving Out Might Be the Better Decision

We’ve already mentioned it–replacing your roof will be a loud and messy affair. Staying on-site will be a test of your patience and resilience. There will also be a number of people going to and from your property throughout the day, which might make you feel like you’re losing a bit of privacy. And then you have to think of your children and pets. Are you sure they’ll be able to handle all the noise and activity?

If your budget allows for it, you might want to stay somewhere else–a hotel or rented apartment–until the roofing project is completed. This way, you and your family will be in relative comfort, there’s less disruption to your daily activities, and your roofer can continue doing fast and efficient work without having to worry about the safety and well-being of the family living on-site.

But You Also Don’t Have To

If your budget is a bit on the tight side and you don’t mind the hammering overhead, you can opt to stay at home during your roof replacement. You should, however, take appropriate measures. These include making your small children understand about the work, and designating specific spaces (away from the work site) where they can safely stay and play. You can secure your pets by having them stay in the basement, a spot where it’s quiet and they can have a little relief from the noise.
