How long does a new roof take?

Ordering a new roof can be an intimidating experience if you've never done one before. Even if you've done an asphalt shingle roof, the method and time frame might feel different than with our metal roofs.

In this article, you'll learn what to expect during each stage of purchasing and installing your new metal roof.

Step 1: The Estimate

Before we can get started on your roof, we'll need to give you a free estimate. During our estimate process, we will survey your roof, measure it, and determine how many specialty features (like peaks and valleys) there are. We'll also look at the structural integrity of your current roof.

Step 2: Order time frame

After you've accepted the estimate, we need to order roofing materials. Because a metal roof is higher quality than asphalt shingles, it can take some time for your roof replacement to arrive. Before the pandemic, orders would take just a few weeks.

Depending on color and supply chain, your metal roof might take some weeks to months to get here. We can perform repairs if needed in the meantime. While you're waiting for your roof replacement, we'll also be able to schedule when your metal roof will be installed.

Step 3: Metal roof installed - How long does it take?

After all of that, we'll be ready to go! If necessary, we'll tear off the asphalt shingles on your current roof before laying down any materials for new metal roofs. Our roofing contractors have years of experience, and our roofing company prides itself on great work.

Many people wonder how long does it take for a roof to be installed? The average roof will take less than a week to install. Installation time will vary based on things like:

  • Whether we're doing a full roof replacement or just roofing over an existing roof
  • Whether we need to remove wooden shingles or asphalt shingles
  • The weather conditions! We can't install your new metal roofing in high winds or when it's wet outside.
  • In the winter months, it might take longer for us to replace your roof roof because cold weather and adverse weather are hard to work around.

There are many factors that decide how long it takes to replace or install your new metal roofing. But whether it's a few hours or a few days, our roofing crew is dedicated to making sure that your job is done correctly.

Step 4: A lifetime of enjoyment

Metal roofs are made to last a lifetime. They rank high in energy efficiency, they prevent structural damage, and they look great, too. By investing in a metal roof, you're increasing your resale value, and making sure that you don't need to worry any more about your roof.
