We often hear clients ask how long it takes for the roof replacement? Understandably, people do not want to have a roof installation take time out of their busy schedules and impact their daily life. That is why we have made a list of factors that you will want to consider while you are planning your roof replacement.

Continuous roof repairs will save you money because the longer you can maintain the condition of your roof, the longer you can wait to have to replace the roof and, in turn, save money. A company like My Florida Roofing Contractor is knowledgeable when it comes to roof repair. Below are a few issues you can look out for to detect if it's time to call on a professional to service your roof.

The Season

It will take time to redo a roof, depending on the season. Roofers have busy seasons like every other industry and an off-season, too. If you plan with plenty of time in advance, you may schedule during the off-season or the wintertime. Usually, your job will be at the top of the list during the off-season and can get done quickly.

However, other factors may affect your wait time. If you are scheduling a roof installation during the hurricane season, you may have to be prepared for the job to take longer than the average estimate. Also, high temperatures in the summer may affect wait times, depending on the roofing material. If you’re planning to use shingles, they can melt in the high temperatures we often get here in Florida.

Unpredicted Hold Ups

Life doesn’t always go as planned, and that goes for roofing jobs, too. Sometimes things come up or get in the way, which makes things take longer than expected. Here are some reasons why a roofing job may take longer than the contractor estimated before starting the job.

A complex roof with many angles will slow down a roof replacement because it will be more challenging to work on all the hips and valleys and could take as many as three days. On the other hand, a simple roof with only two or four facets will go more quickly and finish up in a day.

The landscaping around your home may make it difficult to get the crew and materials in the proper position to make a job go faster if there are a lot of bushes, trees, or a fence near the best access point. Easy access to the roof will make it easier for the contractor to get the job done and done well.
