How Long Does It Take To Replace A Roof

Replacing a roof can be a hassle. Not only do you need to hire a roofing company to do the job, but you have to wait for materials to become available as well. And, if you are changing aspects of your roof, you may need a designer to come in. But, how long does it take to replace a roof?

Here are some factors that can affect the timeline of your roof replacement.

Weather Conditions

If you decide to replace your roof, and it’s going to rain on the day the replacement is scheduled, then you may need to reschedule. Certain weather conditions can make it very challenging to do the replacement. During the spring and summer is the ideal time to schedule roof repairs. 

Roofing Materials & Designs

Depending on the roofing materials you choose, you may have to wait longer in order for them to arrive. And, different materials can take longer to install. For example, asphalt shingles may take 1-3 days, but, concrete tiles may take 8-9 days. You may also need a few extra days if you choose a more intricate roofing design. 

The Size Of Your Home 

If you have a 5,000 sq.ft. home, it may take longer to replace your roof in comparison to a 2,000 sq.ft. home. This is simply due to the size of your roof, the amount of materials needed, and possibly the extra number of roofers needed. 

Roof Accessibility 

Surrounding trees, bushes, or a neighbour whose home is very close to yours can make it hard for roofers to access your roof. This may result in the individuals replacing your roof needing some extra time to plan out the best way to do it. To be proactive, you can trim branches or surrounding bushes to try and open up some space.
