How long will it take to complete my roof?

Roofer in Austin TexasThere is no definite answer to this question. The time required depends on a variety of factors, including:

• Whether existing roofing materials must be removed
• The area to be roofed
• The type of roofing system chosen
• Whether decking and other roofing system components need extensive repair or replacement
• Roof design, such as slope and the number of peaks and valleys
• Whether materials can be off-loaded directly to the rooftop or will need to be hand-carried by the crew
• The number of crew members dedicated to your job.

When a contractor evaluates your site, he can provide you with an estimate on how long the job will take. Every job is different, but expect it to take two days to roof a home of average size with asphalt shingles. If you are having a metal roofing system installed, the job can sometimes take up to three times longer.

With commercial buildings, it is impossible to provide even a ballpark estimate. There are just too many possible variables. For example, is it a flat-top or pitched roof? What materials will be used? How much rooftop equipment will be in the way? Most importantly, is the building a 10,000-square foot office or a 250,000-square foot warehouse?

Another issue that must be considered when estimating the time required for a job is the weather. Roofing contractors monitor weather forecasts, but predictions are not always accurate, especially in Central Texas. An unexpected storm, whether it entails rain, sleet, hail or high winds, can force your contractor to halt work until conditions improve.
