Ways to Minimize the Mess During Home Exterior Renovations

One constant with any kind of home renovation work is the mess that results from it. This doesn’t mean, however, that you need to resign yourself to it. After all, there are ways to minimize the messiness. Added to that is the fact that working with local roofing and siding repair pros like us means you’re afforded our cleanup services as part of the process.

Here are some ways you can contain the mess and prevent potential damage to your property while getting some exterior home improvement work done.

Move Your Outdoor Valuables

Outdoor furniture, potted plants, lawn ornaments and any other item found on your deck or patio can get hit by falling debris during a roof replacement. Before the roofers begin their work, move your outdoor valuables a minimum of 20 feet away from your home.

Drape Off Work Zones

When you’re tackling a siding repair or replacement, make sure to cover the flower beds and shrubs alongside your home to protect them from the construction dust and debris that can settle on them. By laying down plastic sheets or tarps, the pros can more easily contain the mess during cleanup.

Ensure a Tidy Work Zone

When renovating a certain part of your home, it doesn’t have to feel like you’re living on a construction site. See to it that workers contain their tools and materials to the areas in which they’re currently working.

Make a Path

It’s to be expected that crew members will be coming in and out of your house when working on a home exterior renovation. This will likely result in dirty and possibly damaged floors, which is why it’s a good idea to lay down tarps or plywood to protect your floors and the pathways outside your home.
