  • “What a pleasure dealing with your company for the replacement of the cedar shingle roof on the Southampton Baptist Church. What stood out most was when we were discussing the type and thickness of the shingles. Five companies gave us estimates and you were the only ones to mention the need for class C fireproof shingles. The first questions from the township inspector was whether the shingles were fire rated and did we have a permit. In a time when contractors do not return calls, do not follow through, and many times do not do the job without creating other problems for the customer, Eiseman Construction was definitely a breath of fresh air.”

How to prepare your home?

Once you’ve received your door notice it is time to prepare your home for the construction process.

  • Move your car to a common area before 6:30 am the morning work is to begin on your building.
  • Move any outside deck or balcony furniture or flowerpots inside or away from your building (approx 30′). If you do not move your personal items, Eiseman Construction will move them as needed, however, Eiseman Construction is not responsible for damages to personal items.
  • It is recommended that wall hangings such as artwork, pictures, etc. are removed as they may fall due to construction vibrations. Screens are also recommended to be removed as they may tear.
  • If you have a satellite dish installed on your roof, we will be removing it and placing it on the ground. Please contact your satellite dish provider to reinstall the dish and adjust it properly. Note that the satellite cannot be mounted on the new shingles as that will void your warranty.
  • If you store items in your attic, we recommend they be removed or covered since some light debris will fall inside due to the replacement of plywood.
  • If your skylight is being replaced, please move furniture or place a sheet/tarp under the area as light debris may fall through the opening. Note that there may be some interior work required on the drywall after the skylight is replaced and that is not included in the cost of the skylights.
  • We ask that you treat your home as an active construction site until completion. Please refrain from the use of your deck until your building is completed and our crews have performed a thorough clean-up of construction debris.

What do I do when I need to leave my home?

Call the office at 215-345-9159 if you need to leave or enter your home at least 5 minutes before necessary. The office will contact your onsite manager who will knock on your door when it is safe to leave.

What if I find nails or other debris on my property?

Removing and replacing roofing materials is messy business. We do our absolute best to pick up all debris, but as this is a large construction process, smaller debris can be missed. In addition, thousands of nails will be removed from your building. Please park your car in the alternative areas until your building is complete. Please contact the office or your onsite manager if you notice that an area needs extra attention.

What if I find damage to my property?

Due to the nature of construction, mistakes can happen and there can be damages. Please call the office with any concerns. Your onsite manager will be sent to evaluate and we will determine how to set the situation straight.

Please note that pre-existing conditions, such as nail pops or seam cracks on interior drywall, or not preparing your property as detailed previously are not covered.

If you have any questions about this policy please call the office to discuss with our highly qualified customer service team.

Will my pet be distressed by the construction project?

The re-roofing process is noisy when working on your home and this does distress some animals. Some customers do choose to make arrangements for their animals during the days their roof is replaced.

Our crews do their best to clean up daily, but stray nails are possible. Please be cautious when walking your dogs, especially in areas that are under construction or have just been completed. Call the office if you find any areas of particular concern.

How will my landscaping be protected?

This is a major construction project and we do our best to protect plants with plywood structures and tarps. If you have any specific plants that need extra attention, please call the office and we will make the necessary arrangements.

We also suggest waiting to conduct new landscaping until after your building is completed.

What do deliveries of materials look like?

  • Large boom trucks deliver materials to each build
  • It takes approximately 2-3 hours per delivery
  • Some materials will be left on the ground in designated staging areas
  • Dumpster roll-off trucks will be delivering and removing cans as needed
    • Please note: The dumpster is for construction use only

How will my home be protected on the exterior?

  • Plywood is utilized to protect gardens/shrubbery as well as windows and glass doors
  • Tarps are secured to the eaves of buildings when shingles are removed
