Planning to hire a roofing company to do some work on your home? For the sake of your well-being and your satisfaction, our team at Couvreurs DM offers you some practical advice to prepare you well for your roof repair. Happy reading!

Comply with All the Required Formalities:

  • Check with your municipality about the permits to be obtained for carrying out the work

  • Talk to the roofing contractor to find out who takes care of this obligation (him or you)

  • Check that the company you are doing business with is reliable and that its work is covered by liability insurance

  • Make sure you comply with roof ventilation standards – discuss this with your trusted roofing professional

Free the Access Points:

  • The team of roofers will surely pass through your courtyard: try to facilitate the comings and goings of workers and remove bulky items or objects that could be damaged

  • Dogs are our friends, on the other hand, to prevent them from escaping or anyone being bitten, consider putting them on a leash or keeping them indoors

  • Workers sometimes need access to the loft (attic): make sure you know where the entrance is and clear it

Protect Your Property:

  • If your contract does not include the protection of your flower beds, cover them with tarpaulin or hessian before the roofers arrive

  • If the work requires going through the loft, keep the objects near the entrance protected from dust and keep fragile items away

Remain Available:

  • To avoid schedule related issues or bad surprises, ask about the estimated duration of the work to be performed in advance

  • Open the door to the roofers and guide them if they have to go through the interior of the building

  • Stay on site or be available by phone to answer any questions that may arise during an inspection, repair or restoration of your roof
