Factors that Affect the Duration of Roofing Replacement by Melo Construction
At Melo Construction, we try to complete every roofing project as soon as possible so that you don’t have to endure a torn-up roof for long. However, certain factors can affect the time it takes to complete a roofing replacement project. Factors that can affect the time needed to replace one are as follows:
Weather: The weather can be a significant factor in determining how long it will take to finish the roof replacement. Since roofing is an entirely outdoor job, we can perform a roofing job quicker if the weather is clear and there is no rain or snow. However, rain, snow, and storms are environmental factors that can make the conditions difficult or impossible to work in. If there is a lot of slipperiness, or the weather is too windy, you can expect roofing companies to take longer to finish the job.
The size of your home: While it is true that we can finish a roofing job within 2 or 3 days, that time is dependent on the size of your home. So, it is a no-brainer that bigger homes require more time and work to replace the roof than smaller homes. For example, if a home is 1200 square feet in size and its roofing replacement can be done in 1 or 2 days, it will take twice as long to complete the roof replacement for a house that is double the size, say 2400 square feet.
Design of your roof: Apart from the home’s size and the weather, your home roof’s design can also affect the time taken for roof replacement. If your home has a steep roof design that makes it difficult to properly walk around on or place the roofing equipment and materials, we have to use additional safety equipment and care to take longer to finish the job.
All of the factors mentioned above can contribute to the amount of time it takes to replace a roof. No fixed time frame can be given to each home roof replacement project since each home’s roof, and conditions will differ. However, when looking up a roof construction company near me, make sure to hire one with the expertise and experience needed to avoid unnecessary delays. Or you can simply get in touch with us and schedule a roof replacement.
