ROOFing is a messy business. Here's how we minimize that, and what you can do to prepare

K. Howard Contracting offers you exceptional quality and personal attention.  We feel you will be better served by us if you know what to expect when you have your roof replaced.

ATTIC:  Cover items in your attic with tarps or sheets, as dirt and particles will certainly sift down,.

NAILS:  When we are ripping shingles from your roof, hundreds of nails will be removed at the same time.  We do our best to pick up as many nails as possible after the job, using rakes and magnets, but it is inevitable there will be some left when we leave.

PROPERTY PROTECTION:  Tarps are used to shield the sides of the house during rip-off, and to cover shrubs and plants close to the house.

CATHEDRAL CEILINGS:  The roof is only inches above a cathedral ceiling. Although K. Howard Contracting takes utmost care to “tread lightly”, vibrations from footsteps and nail guns can cause nail pops and a shifting of drywall tape on your cathedral ceiling.  KHC is not responsible for this minor damage, and you may need to spackle and repaint after the job is finished.

LENGTH OF TIME NEEDED:  Most jobs take 1-2 days to complete.  Larger or more complicated jobs will take longer.  Ask me about yours.

WHAT WE NEED: An air generator is used to power most of our equipment, but we do need a source of electricity. If there is no outside source, please let me know so we can make arrangements to access an outlet.  On very warm days, access to a water hose is useful to keep the shingles cooler as they are being applied.
