Roofing Installation: How Long Should it Take?

Roofpro Baltimore Washington New Roof Replacement Roof Timeline

Thinking about roof installation? Wondering how long it could take? This is a great question that, unfortunately, does not have a straightforward answer. There are many factors that can impact how long it could take to complete your roof installation project. Of these factors, two of the most important ones to consider are whether you are installing a new roof or replacing an existing roof. Either way, the size of your roof, your choice of roofing materials, the season and weather, the complexity of your roof, and the experience level of your roofing team can each have a drastic impact on your roof installation timeline.

This post will further explore the impact of these various factors on how long your specific roofing installation project will take. However, for the most accurate estimate, reach out to the professional roofing contractors at RoofPRO today.

New Roof Installation Timeline

Though there are many factors that can impact your roof installation timelines, the industry standard for new roof installation seems to be anywhere from one to four days, or longer for larger, more complex roofs. When it comes to roofing there are many things that are outside the control of your roofing company (e.g. the weather), but there are also some simple things that an experienced roof pro can do to expedite the process. For example, ensuring that all materials are on site prior to starting the roof installation project can significantly reduce costs and time.

How Long Does a Roof Replacement Take?

When it comes to roof replacement the timeline doesn’t change much. It should still take roughly one to four days to replace an average sized roof. However, there are two factors that are unique to roof replacement: the potential for hidden structural damage and the decision to tear off or recover.

It is not uncommon for unknown roof damage to be discovered during a roof replacement project. To ensure the integrity of your roof, any underlying issues must be fixed before proceeding with the project. This can add on days or even a week to your project, depending on the complexity of the issue. The decision to either tear off and replace your existing roof or to simply cover it with a new roof is a complicated one as well. Recovering is typically faster, but may not be best for your particular situation. Before starting your roof replacement project, the experienced roofing professionals at RoofPRO can walk you through both options and provide you with a recommendation for your roofing needs.

Other Factors to Consider When Estimating Your Roofing Installation Project Schedule

As with any job, there are many additional factors that can impact your roofing project’s timeline. Some of these cannot be controlled, but others can be prepared for and mitigated. Increased roof complexity and size will obviously add construction time. The average roof is 3,000 square feet. For larger roofs, expect to add roughly one additional day for every additional 1,500 square feet. Your choice of roofing materials can also increase the duration of your roof project. However, it is important to remember that faster is not necessarily better. At RoofPRO we will always work with you to determine what is best for your specific situation. Our roofing teams are designed to ensure timeliness without compromising quality.
