Your roofing system is a crucial part of your residential property. It keeps you, your loved ones and your material possessions safe and protected against the elements. So when it’s time to replace such an important home feature, you’ll naturally want to know what to expect and how long the wait will be.
In this article, your trusted roofing contractor Certified Home Improvement, LLC walks you through the timeline of a typical roof replacement project.
All reputable roofers do their due diligence before starting a roofing project. This entails a thorough inspection of the condition of your current roof, allowing your contractor to provide a precise quote and scope of work. This process generally takes around one to three weeks to complete.
Before the roof replacement process can really begin, your chosen contractor will have to secure building permits. The number of permits will depend on where you live, but the procurement process usually lasts anywhere from two to four weeks.
Once the proper approval documents have been secured, your contractor can now begin the installation. This process includes roof repair or any structural repair as needed. Installation typically lasts a day or a week, including ordering of materials and finalization of plans.
Expect the installation process to be messy. Your roofing contractor will most likely handle the disposal of your old roof, as well as all the hardware that they’ve had to remove. Collecting all the garbage and hauling it away takes one day, sometimes even less than a day. You can cut the grass on your lawn short prior to the installation so it’ll be easier for the cleanup crew to detect nails and staples using their magnetic finder.
