An attractive, well-maintained roof is one of the strongest features of your home’s curb appeal. Imagine a beautiful and well-cared-for home…with a sloppy, leaky (even ugly) covering on top. And of course, as with anything, the key to maintaining a healthy roof is prevention. Inspecting your roof several times each year will go a long way toward helping you catch potential problems before they spiral out of control and become significant, costly repairs. But when it inevitably does need some attention, you don’t want those repairs taking over the rest of your busy life.
Repairing or re-roofing your home can be a lengthy (and loud) process. Some people even opt to move out for the time period that their roof is receiving repairs. An experienced, qualified contractor will provide you not only with a cost estimate, but also a firm timeline for what you can expect. Even so, you should consider any timeline an estimate, and understand that the most seasoned providers will offer you a range for their installation or repair time, just to allow for bumps in the road.
The length of time it takes depends on how large your home is, the time of year, and the type of material you choose for replacement.
One of the most difficult challenges roofers face should be fairly obvious: Weather. This factor is mostly influenced of course by the time of year during which repairs or replacement are required. Roofers and their teams work as quickly as they can to finish any roofing project. But of course, interference from bad weather is a constant threat. Serious professionals know that during the entire period they’re working on a roof, any open areas should be carefully covered each night with a tarp, even just as a precautionary, preventative measure.
