There comes a time when the roof’s got to be replaced. You’ll know you have to call the Billerica MA roofers when the shingles are cracked, your roof has bald spots, and there’s leaks in the house. One of the most common questions homeowners have is “Can I stay in my house while the roof’s being replaced?”
Generally the answer is yes – but you might not want to. Roofing a home is a major construction job, and even the best, most professional crews are going to make noise. If this noise is problematic – and it very well might be, if you have babies or small children, elderly family members, or anyone else living there who may be startled and upset by sudden loud noises. Don’t forget about your fur babies – even the most calm kitty can get pretty stressed out when the roofers are there.
Another factor that can determine whether or not you want to stay in your home while roof repairs are being done is whether or not you work from home. Many people in the South Shore area do have an office at home. While this is normally convenient, the noise associated with having a roofing crew overhead can make working at the coffee shop suddenly seem a whole lot more appealing.
The good news is that working with an experienced Billerica roofing contractor means you’ll have your new roof in place quickly and efficiently. Depending on the size of your roof and what you need to have done, your new roof can be in place in a relatively short time – ranging from a few days to just over a week for larger homes or complex roofs. The really good news is that once your new roof is in place, you’ll never have to worry about having this job done again.
