Why Is It Important That Roofers Bring A Port-A-Potty
Have you thought about the sanitation procedures the roofer and his workers will be using throughout the day? Is it OK by you to have a port-a-potty delivered to the front of your house? You should give this some consideration so that you will not be caught unaware or surprised by an unappreciated act.
Some roofers may want to deliver a port-a-potty to your property for the duration of the project. This can be a beneficial way to assure you and your neighbors that proper sanitation measures are being attended. This is not however, the way most roofers will be performing their role with the work on your property. If you prefer that they utilize this service, then they can add it to their contract. Be aware that they are unsightly and an expensive
addition. Your requests are what are to be respected in this area.
If they do not use a port-a-potty, then how will they deal with their own sanitation? It is typical that you request the roofer and his workers leave the property and visit a nearby convenience store. This is a good way for all of them to be able to purchase additional water, ice and snacks. To hide behind the shrubberies or even the use of vent stacks on the roof should never be tolerated. The reason this is being disclosed here is because other homeowners have been unpleasantly surprised in the past.
A thorough discussion on this topic should take place prior to the start of the project so that all expectations are laid out and an intolerable surprise can be avoided.
It is your property and your requests are to be respected and supervised.
