How to Prepare your Home for a Renovation Project

There is a lot that goes into a renovation project. Upfront, you need to find the best contractor. From there, you have to learn more about the cost, as well as what you will get in return for your money.

Once your project is scheduled, it is time to prepare yourself for what is to come. While your contractor is sure to do all the work, there are still steps you should take to prepare your home.

Maybe you are getting a new roof. In this case, you want to make sure everything around the perimeter of your home is cleared out. For example, don’t leave your car parked in the driveway.

Or maybe you are having new windows installed. In this case, you need to prepare the interior of your home. Are your windows easily accessible? You don’t want furniture and other items in the way. Will you turn off the AC or furnace while the job is being completed? Don’t forget to make this decision.

When you hire a professional contractor, you have somebody on your side that can handle all aspects of the project. This will put your mind at ease from the start. However, keep in mind that there are things you can do to prepare your home for the project.

Do you have any questions about the process associated with installing a new roof, windows, doors, or siding? If so, contact us. We are more than happy to answer your questions and make sure you feel good about what is to come.

Customer Reviews

"Excellent service. Any question I had was addressed in a friendly yet professional manner. I have used Pond before for replacement windows and siding and most recently for new roofing. I highly recommend them for their responsiveness and the high quality of their work."

- Nancy P.

"Pond Roofing was very responsive and knowledgeable about the condition of our roof. They delivered before the expected date and their work was impeccable. I cannot recommend working with Shanti enough."

- Erin M.

"Easy communication with tons of photos and excellent job! Pond Roofing even came back to replace the color of the shingles to our satisfaction. The property was in McLean and they made me look great since my landlord client was very impressed. The swag cookies to our tenants was an added bonus. :-) Thanks so much!"

Laura M.

"Very fast initial response time and great customer service. Repair work was done (by prearrangement) while we had to be out of town and it looks great now that we are back. We have used Pond before and would call them first if we need roofing work in the future. Thanks!"

Scott C.

"Quality and Integrity. Terrific job on a roof repair. Called for a minor fix which was expertly accomplished. Patrick performed a complete inspection, ensuring no other damage or work needed. Perfect!"

Brian N.

"Great communication, very professional repair crew. We have a new construction house that had some issues with vent seals after 10yrs and Pond fixed 8 different areas in one day--very happy with the work."

- Ryan H.

"I recently hired Pond Roofing to check out a leak. They did a great job coming in on time and to troubleshoot the issue. Their pricing was competitive and overall service was excellent. I’m very happy with their work."
