When installing a new roof, most people are anxious to find out how long they will have a crew on their property and when the roof will be completed. Unfortunately, this question is not a simple one to answer. It depends on several factors including the size of your roof, how complicated it is, the type of roofing you select and the time of year the work is done.
The first matter of business is ordering the materials for your roof. When the roof can be started will depend largely on when the roofing materials arrive from the vendor. If the product chosen is on back-order, the entire project may be pushed back by several weeks.
Time of Year
The next matter is getting the roof on the schedule. A professional roofing company in Oklahoma City knows roughly how many days will be needed to do a roof, and they will try to schedule the project so it is completed during the work week so there is no break in the work. Some times of year are busier than others. The springtime tends to have fewer jobs with late summer to fall being a busy time when you could find yourself waiting a month or more for a new roof.
Roofers have to keep an eye on the weather at all times. Sudden rainstorms can compromise a roof and they have to be ready to get a roof tarped and covered. They may postpone jobs based on the weather, potentially setting back everything on the calendar. However, remember that your old roof provides better protection than no roof. Please be patient with Oklahoma City roofers when spring downpours cause a delay in the start of a roof restoration.
Complexity of Roof
How long the roofers will actually be on your roof moving around and making noise depends on the size of your home and how complex the roof is. A simple peaked roof with two sides and no valleys will go extremely fast. The roofers may complete a job like this in only two business days. However, a more complex roof with many peaks, valleys, dormers and walls that meet the roof line will take longer to replace. Every chimney, vent and wall that breaks the roof must be treated with special care to ensure that it is waterproofed.
