Is The Roofing Company Responsible For Cleanup
There can be a tremendous amount of trash and debris that gets generated during the process of installing a new roof. This is all to be dealt with by your roofing contractor. A professional roofer is equipped to handle the cleanup arrangements necessary to put your property back to the original condition it was in prior to the start of the roofing project.
The entire roofing project is to be done with your approval. The cleanup part, though it may sound simple, can be quite the undertaking. There is a tremendous amount of weight involved with the old roof as well as the scrap material left over from the new roofing products. The proper equipment necessary to remove the debris will be a large truck or a contracted roll-off canister placed in your driveway. Care should be taken with either of these so damage does not occur to your driveway. Damage such as leaking oil from trucks or deep scratches and gouges from the placement of the canister are to be prevented.
A full discussion should take place with regard to how he intends to deal with all the removal of debris so arrangements can be made that will not cause intolerable inconveniences to occur and damages will be avoided.
The roofer maybe using a number of toxic materials so it is important that he be in charge of all the cleanup arrangements for his generated debris. The State or municipality will have regulations for the different classifications of trash he will have. A professional roofer will be fully aware of these rules and will have to properly dispose of all this debris to stay within compliance. Some municipalities require records be kept by the roofer as to how he removed the debris and the locations used for the disposal.
Always make a full inspection of your property during the process of the roofing work and at its completion. Always check the flower beds and lawn for the smallest of roofing debris that could cause problems with your lawn care as well as your children's well-being. Leaving your home clean of trash and debris each evening is the hallmark of any professional roofer. Anything less
can be worrisome and frustrating.
