Remodeling projects can be disruptive. For commercial roofing replacements, it could mean a day or two of closing up the shop, depending on the work that needs to be done. For residential construction, you have to worry about its disruptions to your day-to-day activities. This is easily resolved by temporarily moving out while the workers are doing their thing. Your neighbors, on the other hand, might not have that option.
Unfortunately, there is still no silent button or quiet setting for most heavy equipment. The next best thing is for you to give your next-door neighbors some friendly heads-up that the next morning or two might get a little too loud. Other than that, our experts at ATD Restoration suggest the following solutions.
It can’t be stressed enough how important communication is. Whether you’re doing multiple window replacement, siding installation, or even just a landscape renovation, inform your neighbors what you’re planning to do. In case the work gets too noisy, and it will, they at least won’t be finding it out on the day itself. Keeping them informed also gives them a chance to plan around your construction.
Sometimes, access to the worksite would mean cutting through somebody else’s property. Sometimes, having trucks and equipment around your house would mean denying your neighbors access to theirs. Whatever the case may be, discuss it beforehand with your neighbors. If possible, schedule your construction around their busy hours so you give as little disturbance to their lives as possible.
Safety can also be a source of concern for both you and your neighbors. This is especially true if they have small children or pets who might get in the way of your exterior remodeling and roofing contractors. Talk to your team of professionals about their safety measures and make sure to give your neighbors a friendly heads-up as well.
