How Long Will It Take To Repair My Roof?
Installing a new roof can be a costly roof repair, but it’s a common practice for many homeowners. When you install a new roof, the goal is to not have to do it again for 10 to 20 years, but how long does it take for roof replacement?
Is this something that takes hours, days, or longer? Many factors determine how long a roof takes to replace with Shingle Tech. We’ll examine some of these factors and give you an idea of average timeframes.
Your roof is vital to the safety and security of your Washington home, so you don’t want to rush it, but you can’t wait a long time either.
With Roof Repair, Size Matters
One of the biggest determinations on installment time is how much roof needs replacing. A small one-bedroom home can be done quickly, but a sprawling five-bedroom Washington mansion can take much longer.
If the home is small, then a roofing company can install it on a single day. They need to remove the existing shingles, check for damage, and Shingle Tech crews replace them. The steepness of your roof also matters.
A steep roof or one that is higher up may take two or three days to complete. It’s a mix of additional complexity and worker safety. If your roof has lots of flashing that needs replaced, then it can take longer as well.
How Much Damage to Sub-Roof?
If you called the roofing crew after you noticed a leak in your home, then there is likely damage to the sub-roof. If there is extensive damage, then the parts of the sub-roof must be removed and replaced in addition to the shingles.
A Leak can take a circuitous route between where it originates to where it finally drips from your wall. Along the way, it can rot and warp the wood it travels across. The damage could be minor or extensive and roofing contractors won’t know until after they have removed the shingles.
This could add days to the project as they repair the damage before shingling your Washington home by Shingle Tech.
We Can’t Predict Mother Nature
Ideally, there are several days of good weather a roofing company can use to replace asphalt shingles, but that’s not always the case. Roofers check the weather reports, but if it rains or is too windy, they can’t work. This may delay your roof completion.
When a roofing company provides you a free roofing estimate, they assume there will not be a weather delay and they are taking an educated guess as to sub-roof damage, but the timeframe from the estimate should be accurate.
How Long to Replace A Roof?
If your Washington home is small with little sub-roof damage, then it can be done in a single day. Larger homes with significant damage can take a few days or a week. It’s best to contact a roofing company to inspect your Washington home and give you an estimate.
