Having to replace your roof is an inconvenience, to say the least. Unfortunately, if you have to replace your roof, there is no getting around it. Putting it off can be a very bad idea due to safety issues and because it is prone to cause more serious damage. When it is time to replace your roof, odds are you’ll want to know how long it will take so you can plan around the installation accordingly. The time it takes to install your roof will depend on the following three factors.
1. The amount of work that needs to be done
A full roof replacement is going to take a lot longer than a partial roof replacement. Not to mention the size, slope, and material needed will all factor into the time it takes. For example, installing a new tile roof is going to take much longer than it will to install a new asphalt one. Additionally, if a new roof deck needs to be installed, extra time will be needed to complete the project.
2. The weather
The weather can’t always be predicted. Your roof can’t shouldn’t be installed in the middle of a rainstorm, which means certain weather events may delay the work. Delays due to weather may be more likely to happen if your roof needs to be replaced immediately in the middle of winter.
3. The level of roof detail
The level of detail refers to the features on your roof. The more skylights, vents, chimneys, and other details that need to be worked around will add to the time your roofer is up on your roof.
There are many factors that contribute to how long it will take to install a new roof. These are three of the main variables you should keep in mind. A good roofer should be able to estimate how long it will take to install your new roof based on the size of your roof, its slope, the level of detail, and the materials being used.
