How loud does the noise get while putting on a new roof?
Friday, October 8, 2021
Pretty darn loud. You may want to leave home for at least part of the time while your roof is replaced. There’s the sound of boots on the roof, scraping sounds and thuds as the old roofing is removed and new shingle bundles dropped on the roof. Then pneumatic nail gun bam-bam-bams as the new shingles are laid down. Plus, in Florida the roof sheathing has to be re-nailed to current standards if it's an older roof. That doubles the nail gun shots going off overhead. Good time to visit friends or go out for a long lunch.
