The replacement of the covering on a standard, 1,000-2,000 square foot building takes around 3 days, but the actual duration of a roof replacement project is influenced by many factors – here are some:
- The weather – even the most accurate weather report can be wrong, the forecast might say tomorrow will be sunny, but when you wake up in the morning, you see a solid curtain of rain. Bad weather is a major hindrance in roof replacement, one that can prolong the process significantly;
- The complexity of the project – a roof that slopes in multiple angles and has features that make roofing work more difficult usually takes longer to replace than simple roofs. The installation of roofing ornaments and skylights slows down the installation process, so make sure to prepare for adding a couple of days to the project duration;
- The number of layers – some types of roofing materials, such as metal panels, can be installed on top of the existing roof without requiring the old layer of roof covering material to be removed. If your roof permits the installation of a second layer, the replacement process will be significantly shorter as well as cheaper, allowing you to save on debris removal and cleaning after the completion of the roofing project. It’s always a good idea to call a roofer San Antonio supports to find out a more accurate time frame depending on the condition of the roof and what is needed.
