Whether you need to be home during a roof repair depends on several factors, including:

The scope of the repair: Small repairs, like patching a leak or replacing a few shingles, typically don’t require your presence. However, extensive repairs or total replacements might have to be available for access or decision-making.

The contractor’s policy: Some contractors prefer homeowners to be present during the entire process, while others are comfortable working independently as long as access is granted and clear communication is established. Please talk about this preference with your chosen contractor beforehand.

Security concerns: If you have valuables at home or prefer someone present for security reasons, being there during the repair might be crucial.

Communication and access: Discuss access points with the contractor and arrange for someone to be available to answer questions or grant further entry.

Comfort and peace of mind: Ultimately, the decision depends on your comfort level. Being present allows you to ask questions, address concerns immediately, and observe the work firsthand. However, staying at work or another location is fine if communication and access are ensured.

Here are some tips for deciding whether to be home:

    • Discuss your needs and concerns with the contractor.
    • Consider the size and complexity of the repair.
    • Plan for clear communication with the contractor throughout the process.
    • Arrange for someone to be available to grant access if needed.
    • Do what makes you feel most comfortable and secure.

Remember, open communication with your chosen contractor is critical to a smooth and successful roof repair experience, regardless of whether you decide to be present during the work.
