Getting Your Roof Replaced During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Many people believe that the current COVID-19 situation means that they can’t or shouldn’t get a roof replacement or repair. However, that is not true.

In fact, if both you and your roofing contractor abide by safety regulations, getting a new roof or fixing your current one will be as easy as it is in normal circumstances.

Why Getting Help for Your Roof Is Essential

A leaky roof can cause many problems. No matter how small the damage seems, it is vital to fix it quickly. That way, you will prevent water damage, bigger leaks, mold, and mildew.

In addition, you will also save money. Leaving your roof unattended will most likely make the damage worse, resulting in higher repair bills. Something small that could have been fixed with a repair might become so severe you need a new roof entirely in just a few days.

What Safety Protocols Do Roofing Contractors Need to Follow?

In most cases, safety regulations vary from contractor to contractor. However, all of them should base their protocols on advice from the WHO and the CDC.

Thus, you should expect the contractors to wear masks and maintain social distancing at all times. Since most of the work roofing contractors do is on the outside of your home, you won’t have to worry about being in physical contact with them.

In addition, you will make any transactions and sign any contracts digitally, to minimize contact. So, you will not have to pay in cash or sit in a room to sign a contract. Everything will be done remotely.

Can You Do Estimates Remotely Too?

Though it might seem impossible, you can actually do the entire process up to the replacement/repair via phone. Here’s how:

Firstly, you research roofing companies. You look for someone reliable and experienced in your area who has an excellent track record and positive reviews. It is crucial that your contractor has a No-Contact-Service sign on their site, so you know they will abide by all safety rules.

Then, it is time for a virtual meeting. During this conversation, you will talk about the state of your roof, the estimate, and whether a repair or a replacement is a better choice. You should ask any questions you may have about the process, and you can even request further info via email or text.

Your contractor might also ask for photos or videos of your roof, and it would be great if you could provide those. Once they have an estimate for you, you will get to review it from the safety of your home. All contracts, payments, and agreements will be made electronically, so there is no unnecessary exposure for anyone.

Finally, yours is only to relax as technicians come and work on your roof.
