Will My Roofer Leave a Mess?

Whether it’s a two-bed terrace, three-bed semi or a larger detached property, everyone wants their home to look great. That’s why it’s only natural to be concerned about mess when contractors are making repairs or improvements.

Roofing is no exception, with homeowners worried about their loft as well as the area surrounding their home. In this post, we’ll discuss the mess caused by roofing and how to make sure it doesn’t become your problem.

Mess is inevitable

There’s no two ways about it – roofing is a messy job. Whether it’s repointing your chimney, pulling off old guttering or replacing old tiles and rusted nails, there’s bound to be some dirt, dust and debris lying about at the end of a roofing job.

This could be in your loft directly under your roof, or around your property, such as your garden or driveway. Whatever the case, it shouldn’t be up to you to clean it up. A trusted roofing company will always set aside time at the end of a job to make sure any mess is cleared, leaving your home exactly as they found it – albeit with a perfectly functioning roof.

Avoiding a messy situation

Unfortunately, there are some roofers who will happily leave your roof space, driveway or garden covered in debris. This can include rusty nails, which are obviously a hazard for children, pets or even yourself.

If they’re happy to leave it that way, chances are they won’t be keen on coming back to clean up if you get back in touch. The result is you having to spend hours sweeping around your home or up in the loft – not to mention cleaning anything you had stored in there.

With that in mind, it’s best to make sure your roofer is committed to cleaning up any mess before you agree to let them work on your roof. Ask them whether cleaning is included in your quote – and make sure they add it in if not.

This is a must when you’re comparing different roofing quotes, as you won’t want to go for one that’s cheaper only to be left with a messy home when the work’s complete.

It’s also worth checking if anything needs to be moved to avoid damage or dirt. That could mean pulling things down from your loft, covering them up or just moving your car off the driveway.
