New Roof

Installation Times

“How long will it take to install my new roof?” As a Chicago roofing contractor with decades of combined experience, we’ve been asked this question at least a thousand times and every single time we give the very same answer – it depends. Honestly, we’re not being smug. Your new roof installation will depend on a variety of factors and until they’re known it would be irresponsible of us to give any other answer. One simple rule of thumb: the larger and more complex the roof, the longer it will take.

For those with simple roofs – where the layout includes no irregularities or added complexity – we can usually complete the project in a single day. That’s assuming that the weather cooperates and no access problems are encountered. So, a good answer to “how long will it take to install my new roof?” is a minimum of one day. However, that doesn’t really answer the question, does it? So, let’s start with a one-day project for simple roofing and extend that out for roofs that are larger and more complicated.

There are a great many factors that can play into the time it takes top complete your new roof installation. In Chicago, these include:

  • Roof Size
  • Roof Complexity
  • Weather Patterns
  • Access Problems
  • Material Delivery
  • Structural Damage
  • Insurance Claims

You can always use the size of the roof, its complexity – meaning any obstructions present, and the materials you wish to use as a guide to determining how much your roof will cost. You can use these same metrics to gauge the time it will take to complete the work. If a simple roof can take only one day when the weather is cooperating then a more complex roof may take up to three days. Anything longer than that and you might be facing a problem with your roofing contractor. No roofing project should take longer than a week to complete from start to finish – weather permitting.
