One of the most commonly heard questions in roofing is, “How long does a new roof take?” And, while the process depends on certain factors beyond our control – like weather, the simplest answer is one day or more. For a simple roof layout, when the weather is cooperating, we can finish the job easily in one day. As the roofing complexity and slope increases, the time needed for completion goes up to as much as three days or longer.
The best answer to, “How long does a new roof take?” is one specific to you and we understand that. So, to try to make it even easier to estimate the time needed for your new roof installation, think of a normal single-family residence containing three bedrooms and around 2,200 interior square feet. That roof would take our team a day to finish with good weather. Now, expand that up to a three-flat with a good deal of obstruction on the rooftop – antennae, satellite dishes, HVAC units, piping, ductwork, etc. That kind of job may take longer, perhaps two days, due to the need to work around the objects in our way without damaging them.
If your home has a high slope with adornments and multiple angles, the job could take up to three days or more. That’s due to the need to remain safe while moving the materials and laborers around the roofing. The more time it takes to shift equipment and manpower, the more time it will take to get to the finish line. No matter what, if the weather holds and you hire a reputable Tyler roofing company, the answer to “How long does a new roof take?” is one to three days – anything longer and you’re probably facing a mistake on the roofer’s part.
