How Long Does It Take to Install a Roof Replacement?

A roof replacement is a major job. It can be a daunting prospect when you realize your home is in need of major roofing work. However, with a team of professionals on your side it can be a totally different experience. The team at Roofers Elite are experienced professionals who have experience working on all manner of roofing projects from large to small – and everything in-between.

Unfortunately, there’s not a straight answer when it comes to determining how long it will take the team at Roofers Elite to replace your roof. There are a number of factors that will determine the time it takes to replace your roof which we will discuss further in this short guide.

The Deciding Factors that Impact Replacement Time


The harsh winter weather may slow down work on your Southern or Central, Maine, home. If your work is being undertaken in the winter, it may be necessary for additional time to be taken. If there’s heavy rain or snow forecast, it’s likely that your project will have to be put on hold. In short, inclement weather is likely to have an adverse effect on the time it takes to replace your roof. As such, it’s essential to keep an eye on your attic for any issues.

Roofing Materials and Design

The design and material that your new roof is to be made of will have a significant impact on the time it takes to complete your project. For example, if your new roof is made of asphalt shingles, you should expect it to take a day or two, whereas if it’s made of concrete tiles, it may take a week, at least, before it’s finished. Another thing to factor in is the design in which you would like the shingles to be laid. More complex designs will take longer than a traditional horizontal layout.

The Size of Your Home

The larger your roof, the longer a replacement will take. A small home will be completed significantly quicker than a larger building with a garage attached. The team at Roofers Elite have experience working on homes throughout the Southern and Central, Maine, area and will give you a rough idea of how long you should expect it to take based on the size of your home.

If Your Roof is Damaged

If there’s structural damage, for example, after bad weather, it will take contractors significantly longer than just replacing the shingles. The more work needed to restore your roof to a safe state, the more time you should expect the work to take.
