Can you live in your home while your roof is being replaced?
Yes, you can, and there are pros and cons to staying in your home while your roof is replaced.
Pro: Staying in your home while replacing the roof will save you money. You won’t have to get a hotel or incur extra charges on top of your roof costs.
Con: It is going to be loud. A roof may only take a few days to complete under the best circumstances, but the noise can get overwhelming, even if only for a few days. Living in the home is fine, but if you work from home and need quiet, you will probably need to find a place that suits your needs better during the day.
Some people worry that they will be in the way if the company replacing the roof needs access to the inside of the house. This is unlikely since any inspections that need to be done inside the home will most likely have been done before the work has started on your roof.
