In preparation for exterior repairs, here are some items and preventative measures that residents should be aware of. These notes will help prepare you for what to expect during your exterior repairs.
Estimated Time of Arrival
Unless the job is scheduled as a 1st stop (8-10am start time), we are unable to give an exact time the repairs will take place due to unforeseen issues that may arise. Often, our crews encounter additional work beyond original scope once they start a project. Please understand there are variables that can come into play once we begin a job, such as weather, unforeseen rotted wood, changes to orders. Please give our office a call and we would be more than happy to give you an approximate time the day of the scheduled repairs. No hard time will be given due to changes in scope of work. Our goal is to complete the work on the date we schedule with you.
There will be various levels of noise through the duration of your project. If you, other family members, or even pets have a sensitivity to loud noises, we recommend spending some time away from your house while the job is in progress. You may also want to warn the neighbors of the impending temporary increase in noise and traffic.
Protecting Unsecured Items
Vibrations from construction work may cause items to fall or slide off of shelves and walls (ex. mirrors, pictures, figurines or plates). We recommend that any valuable items be removed prior start date. You may want to perform a more thorough walk through before any roofing activity commences. *The floor level directly below the roof is the most susceptible.
Attics and Garages
Please remove or review configuration of cars, motorcycles, bicycles, boats, and other storage items at risk of being dirtied or damaged. Debris can fall through spaces in the roof decking. C2 Operations is not responsible for the removal or cleaning of these items.
Rotted wood is a typical hidden defect related to exterior repairs. We will promptly communicate any changes in price or scope of work due to wood replacement.
Please be aware when entering or existing construction zones, always keeping small children and pets away from the work area.
We will perform daily clean-ups removing equipment and properly disposing of debris. A magnetic roller will be utilized to pick-up metal debris, but please be advised that a few nails, hidden in the grass or shrubbery, may possibly remain.
Inclement weather may force delays in our production schedule. We require an adequate window of clear weather to work safely and efficiently.
Roofers are not electricians! Therefore, existing electrical mounts or electrical work may need to be addressed by a Certified Electrician for us to safely complete the roof work. Our estimator will notify you of any necessary electrical work. For example: If a new power fan is being installed, electric must be connected for it to work.
Prior to skylight work, it is recommended to move or cover the interior area below the skylight with cloth, towels, or sheet. Some debris may jostle loose and fall into the area beneath a skylight when it is being replaced. These items are not complete as there are other considerations that could happen. In our experience, these are the main considerations that occur and we want all customers to be aware.
