There are many reasons that your roof might be damaged. Perhaps there has been a recent storm that caused tiles to fall off or something to fall into your roof. Maybe the roof you have is old and has fallen into a state of disrepair. Or, maybe it’s just one of those things that needs fixing. No matter the reason, having a home with a roof that is damaged or in need of repair is less than ideal and can make your living situation way less fun. Here we will look at how long it takes to replace a roof.
How long does a roof replacement take?
There are a few different factors that can affect the length of time it takes to replace a roof in your home.
The size that needs replacing
Some homes are, naturally, bigger than others and as such it will take more time for the roof to be replaced. There will be a more complex process that take place, more materials needed, and manual time taken to remove the old roof and fit the new one. If the home is small, a roof replacement could take around 2-3 days. But if you have a very large house, this time could extend to a couple of weeks.
The weather and time of year
It can be dangerous and very unpleasant for roofers to fit roofs when the weather is bad, such as windy and rainy. This means that work could get called off on certain days when the weather doesn’t allow for it. If you are having your roof replaced in winter, it will inevitably have more time with bad weather days. So, it can take longer than a roof replacement that takes place during the warm summer months.
How big a job it is
As well as size making a difference, the type of roof you have and the complexity of it can also make the roof replacement take longer to finish. You might have more complicated materials that they need to work with. Or, perhaps you need your downpipe and guttering repaired and replaced too. These can all contribute to it taking longer than you might have thought for it to be replaced. The best way to know the timing is to speak with a professional.
