The average roof replacement can take between a few days and a few weeks to complete. However, don’t take this blanket estimate to heart. There are several things to factor in when it comes to the length of time your residential or commercial roof replacement will take.
At Concord Roofing & Construction we believe in the importance of honest expectations and delivering the best results to our clients. Here are some of the factors we take into consideration when we estimate how long it will take us to properly have your roof replaced.
The Size and Design of Your Building
The basic dimensions of your rooftop have a huge impact on how long a roof replacement will take to complete. If you have a roof with a larger amount of square footage, then it’s going to take longer to replace than a roof of a smaller size.
For the average home that is less than 1200 square feet, roof installation can take a day. As the square footage increases, you’ll have to simply expect to wait longer for an efficient replacement.
Also, aside from the size of your roof, the actual design of the structure plays a key role in completion. A plain, flat roof, will be a lot easier to replace than a roof with complex design that juts out in angles or has multiple extra elements involved like the steepness of the roof.
The type of roof material you choose to work with also has a significant impact on your project’s timing. Some materials like asphalt shingles can go up rather quickly, while concrete tile could take between 8 and 9 days with a sizable crew on the job.
Your contractor will be able to walk you through your material options and give you a clear idea of what timeline you should expect from the decision you make.
Even if you’ve got your roof replacement planned out to the “T,” Mother Nature can always rear her rainy head and add on some unexpected interruptions for your replacement deadline. Rainy and snowy days aren’t safe conditions for a crew to be scaling a rooftop. Even a high chance of precipitation can prevent most workers from taking such a risk.
The Experience of Your Contractor
If your roofing contractor is new to the industry or just doesn’t have the experience your roof needs for a job well done, it could take some time to get your roof where you need it to be. If areas need to be re-replaced or fixed after the fact, not only will your roof take longer to replace, but it’s going to take even more out of your budget than originally planned.
