Roof Replacement Tips

How Long Will a Roof Replacement Take?

When it comes to a roof replacement, if it is a clear, hot, summer day, then a crew of 5-6 experienced roof can remove and replace a 40 square asphalt shingle roof in just one day. A square is a roofing terminology for shingles. For example, 1 square = 100 square feet of shingles.

When the temperatures are mild, they can install up to 50 squares in one day. This is assuming the roof is not to steeply pitched and not architecturally complex. This is the simplest scenario, and you can calculate other jobs using this as an example.

However, there are numerous other factors that can change this time frame. Calculating replacement duration does call for some primary factors with the addition of some other uncontrollable outliers, which are weather and structural issues.

Obviously, the weather can cease the installation in its tracks, and structural repairs can prolong the job from half an hour to a complete day depending on how bad the damage really is. However, for the sake of a normal time frame, assume the weather is in your favor, and there are no structural issues to the roof.

Primary Factor – Type of Material

Because every installation is different due to factors such as style, pitch, size, and weather, it is disingenuous of us to give you a definite time frame. So instead, we have rated different roofing materials to give you a ballpark that is based on average installation times during prime conditions when dealing with an average roof.

Easy = 1-2 days,

Moderate = 2-5 days

Difficult = 5-14 days

  • Asphalt Shingles are the easiest

  • The membrane is moderate to difficult

  • Wood Shakes are moderate
