Lowcountry Roofing: Quality Roofers in Charleston SC
At the outset, doing a roof tear off seems like an overwhelming job. For this reason, many choose to leave the job up to Charleston roofing professionals. But, the truth of the matter is, if you do a little research and some preparation, it’s something that can easily be done by a homeowner in a couple of days. As with all things, success is contingent upon having the right tools and having those tools easily available.
When it comes to a roof removal, the first place you’re going to want to start is with purchasing a receptacle for the garbage that is going to come from the old roof. Have that receptacle positioned as close to the roof as possible, perhaps in the driveway. In order to protect your driveway, put a few sheets of plywood down under the wheels of the trash receptacle.
If you have bushes or trees around your house, cover them with plastic. This is going to prevent debris from falling and damaging them. This is also going to make the cleanup process a whole lot easier. When it comes to windows and exterior walls, take a few sheets of plywood and lean them up against the walls and windows. This is going to protect the walls from damage and the windows from breaking.
Now that you have the basic prep work out of the way, you can begin removing the old shingles. This is a step where having the right tools means everything. Using a tear off shovel is going to make the job so much easier.
