If you’re replacing a roof in Jacksonville, Daytona, Gainesville, or anywhere in between. This blog will offer a ballpark idea of what to expect. First and foremost, breathe easy. As stressful as roof leaks or roof replacement issues are; choosing the right contractor will make the process simple, and protect the investment you’ve made in your home.
For all intents and purposes, your roof will always be completed relatively quicky. We install roofs as quickly as doing the “best” job will allow. Our first focus is to give you the best possible roof- installed as if it was going on our own home. We aim to “be quick, but not hurry,” completing the job with attention to detail. We then focus on meticulous cleanup (nails, materials etc.) of your home our business, in order to leave the property as we found it. When customers ask us how long their roof will take to be installed, we discuss the following factors…
Roof Size and Complexity:
The size and complexity of a roof are significant determinants of the time required for replacement. A roof with numerous facets will naturally take longer to replace than a simpler, two to four-faceted roof. Larger roofs, understandably, necessitate more time for replacement and are accompanied by higher replacement costs. If your roof job is straight forward, the job will be too. If there’s extras to attend to? An experienced contractor will manage expectations of how long, and what to expect.
Accessibility is a crucial aspect of roof replacement. Factors such as height and steepness of the roof affect the time needed for replacement. Higher and steeper roofs pose challenges in material transportation and require careful work, thus extending the replacement duration. Additionally, obstacles like bushes along the house can impede the contractor’s access, affecting the overall timeline. So as we discussed above, use common sense. If your roof has a unique construction, shape, or vertical rise- it’s going to take your roofing contractor longer to do the job correctly. Beware of a contractor who says they can do a job quicker than common sense would dictate. Make sure the sales rep manages expectations of how long the job will take based on your roof’s condition.
Reroofs and rain don’t go together. Weather is an obvious variable in the roof replacement equation. It’s not advisable to replace a roof during adverse weather conditions such as rain or high wind. Optimal replacement conditions include dry seasons with longer daylight hours, facilitating a quicker roof replacement process. Timing the replacement during favorable weather conditions increases the likelihood of completing the replacement within a day. If you live with in the service area of this blog Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, Gainesville (or anywhere in between) – fall and winter months typically offer less rainfall and are a perfect time to start a roofing project.
