- It is best to arrange for small children and pets not to be around the construction site.
- So the job can be completed in a day (most of the time), expect workers to start early and end late.
- Your home will be a construction site for the day, expect there to be noise inside and outside your home.
- Your driveway will probably be blocked with equipment and / or materials. For this reason and to avoid flat tire nails, it is recommended to park your car (s) on the street during the day (s) of work.
- We recommend removing all loose items from shelves and wall walls; Photos, plates and figurines. Hammering can create vibrations and shake these elements off shelves and / or walls.

- During the roofing project, dust may fall from the beams and the bottom of the roof. For this reason, we recommend that any clothing or items that may be damaged are covered or protected; Especially in attic spaces used as storage.
