RoofLifeB016-129 Podcast Transcription:
Shayla: You are listening today to the Roof Life of Oregon Podcast and I’m talking with Jerry who is a roof specialist at Roof Life. And, Jerry, it’s a great time to be planting grass, new landscaping in front of our homes, but, tell me, when should I think about doing that, especially if I’m planning a roofing project?
Jerry: If you are planning a roofing project, please wait to do any kind of landscaping, planting of grass, planting of plants of any kind, unless it’s away from the home. When you do a roofing project, all that stuff that’s on you roof is going to come crashing down. It is not pretty, it is damaging, it causes problems, it’s dirty, it’s nasty, and so we don’t want that to land on your brand new landscape that you just put out, especially the grass. When you first plant grass, you don’t want to walk on it, because it’s brand new. It’s little baby sprigs, and you don’t want your roofer trouncing all over the place, just destroying all that money that you just put into the landscaping.
So if you have a roofing project, which this is the busiest time of year for roofs to be installed onto homes, and this is also the busiest time of year to plant grass, please hold off on landscaping until your roofing project is complete. You will save yourself a ton of money and a ton of headache just by doing things from top from bottom on your housing projects.
Shayla: And we’ve talked, Jerry, however, that Roof Life does go out of your way a little bit more than the other companies to protect your home, right? I mean, you guys leave no trace when you’re done at the end of the day.
Jerry: That is correct. We do go above and beyond making sure to protect everything that’s out there. And we understand sometimes the timing just doesn’t merit to do the grass project after the roof. And we will do everything we can to make sure we don’t destroy those things. But it is very, very difficult. So, yes, we are going to go above and beyond to make sure things are protected. We just ask you to, if you’re able to, start those projects until after the roofing project is completed.
Shayla: As you heard Jerry say, it is a busy time of year at Roof Life of Oregon. You want to get on their schedule as soon as possible. If you have any more questions about what we’ve talked about today, please reach out to Roof Life of Oregon. Thanks, Jerry.
