Blue Sky Roofing, we understands the importance of keeping your Florida home protected. But with a complete roof replacement, a common question pops up: should you stay put during the project or find alternative accommodations?

This blog will explore the advantages and disadvantages of both options, empowering you to make the decision that best suits you.

The Roof Replacement Project

Let's face it, roof replacements are loud. The hammering, sawing, and general construction can be disruptive, especially for those who work from home or have little ones. If peace and quiet are a must for your day, then staying elsewhere during the project might be the sweeter choice.

Flying Debris

Safety always takes center stage. During the removal of your old roof, debris can fall from the work site. While Blue Sky Roofing prioritizes a clean and contained workspace, opting to stay elsewhere eliminates the potential risk of encountering falling materials.

Protect Your Landscaping and Outdoor Furniture

Florida's beautiful landscaping deserves some TLC. While our roofing professionals take great care to minimize disruption, dust and debris can settle on your prized plants and furniture. Consider temporarily relocating these items to your garage or covered patio, or opt to stay elsewhere during the project to avoid any potential damage.

Utilization of Your Parking Space

Depending on the size and complexity of your roof replacement, parking access might be limited in your driveway. If you have multiple vehicles, or rely heavily on your driveway for parking, staying elsewhere during the project can ensure you have convenient access to your car.

How Long Will This Take?

The duration of your roof replacement can vary depending on the size and complexity of your roof, as well as Florida's ever-changing weather patterns. Generally, most residential roof replacements in Florida are completed within a few days.
