On average, residential siding contractors and roofing installers take about two to three days to finish a typical roof replacement project. This timeline can be shorter or longer depending on a number of factors such as the availability of materials, the scheduling of the work and the scale of the whole construction.
In addition to these factors, there are other reasons that can also cause delays in a roof replacement. Understanding these reasons can help you better prepare for them or avoid them entirely. Let our experienced roofers at Great Lakes Roofing and Siding explain the things that can often delay a reroofing job.
Aside from requiring you to schedule an appointment for a sudden storm damage roof repair, bad weather can also delay any construction done to your home. Shingles are best installed under fair weather to allow the seals to set and ensure their safety and performance. Weather forecasts are not 100% accurate but they can still be helpful when arranging a schedule for a reroofing.
It’s not uncommon for homeowners to change their minds about certain details even in the middle of a roof installation. However, doing so frequently will stray your project farther away from the original plans and cause delays in both the construction and ordering of new materials. Hash out and finalize all the details in your roof replacement plan before starting any work and, as much as possible, avoid making unnecessary changes during the project.
Sometimes, roofing contractors can uncover problems that were under the roof while doing the job. For example, a commercial roof coating could be found to be faulty, or a residential roof deck could be discovered to be rotting. These issues must be addressed before continuing the work and, because of this, your roof replacement could suffer some delays.
