Ask Roofstar: How Long Does Roof Installation Take?

If you think you may need a roof replacement, one of the things on your mind is probably how long the process will take. Knowing how long it will take to get your roof finished is important, so that you can plan around it and make sure you and your family are inconvenienced as little as possible. So today we’re asking Roofstar: How long does roof installation take?

Roofstar Says:

As with most roofing procedures, the total length of time it will take to install a roof depends on multiple factors. Weather, for instance, can cause significant delays. But most of the time, roof installation will take about a day or two, up to three or four in less than ideal circumstances.

How Long Does it Take to Install Shingles on a Roof?

When it comes to a re-roof – that is, installing a new layer of shingles on top of an existing layer instead of replacing it entirely – the timeline tends to be a little bit faster than a full roof replacement. However, a re-roof isn’t always an option – for example, if you have already had a re-roof performed, it will not be possible to do one again. And in some circumstances, a roof replacement is ultimately a safer decision, even if it is longer and more expensive.

How Long Does it Take to Take off and Put on a New Roof?

A full roof replacement, where the roof is dismantled and completely replaced, usually takes one to two days. How long it will take exactly depends on several different factors, such as the materials used, the size and shape of your roof, and the weather.

Can a Roof Be Installed in One Day?

It is possible for a roof to be installed in one day, especially if the area of the roof is small and simply shaped. However, when you’re planning for a roof replacement, it’s smart to account for at least two days, as unavoidable delays – for example, involving weather – cannot always be predicted.

Should I Stay Home During Roof Replacement?

Whether or not you stay at home during a roof replacement is completely up to you. Roof replacements are very noisy, and even with the best roofers there is a risk of debris falling as they work, so it’s recommended that you stay somewhere else for the duration of the replacement. But if you wish to stay at home and can tolerate the loud noises, you are more than welcome to do so.
