How Long Does It Take for New Roof Installation in Michigan?
September 8, 2022
So, how long should you expect us to finish a new roof installation? We’ll address that in this article, and explain some of our specialty work for homes and businesses.
We know that time is money and nobody wants to have construction workers on the roof for extended periods. This is what you can expect with a roof replacement project with Rapid Roofing.
Rapid Roofing: Rapid New Roof Installation
We can get new shingles on your roof without cutting corners faster than anybody in the Detroit area. In all but rare exceptions, our crews get the job done in about a day or two. That should be music to your ears (rather than never-ending hammers to your roof).
One of the main factors that MIGHT make a roofing job take longer is the size and complexity of the home. Usually, unless your home has a lot of square footage, several slopes, and angles, or lots of structural damage, we shouldn’t need to take much longer. Sometimes, we might encounter a particularly large home, say roughly 5,000 square feet or higher, that might force us to use three to five days.
The other big factor: is the weather. We wish we could fit all our work into sunny days with no rain, but that’s impossible because shingles can’t get wet when you first apply them. Moreover, extreme heat can cause lots of problems for the materials as well.
One last note about installation pace. The best thing you can do as a homeowner is to make your roof as easily accessible as possible. Certain things like fences, overgrown trees/bushes, and other obstacles can make getting to various parts of your roof take longer.
Can You Do Roofing By Yourself?
You might be wondering: What are the prospects for me doing some of the roof installations by myself? The short answer is: No because it’s dangerous and you have to receive licensing, training, and certification to do this properly. Roofing is definitely not a DIY task.
Let us take the guessing work out of this difficult home improvement job. Our professionals have been at it for several years, and know how to troubleshoot every angle of your roof, including flashing, soffits, gutters, and every other fine point. While it’s okay to do small upkeep tasks by yourself, you should stay off the ladder when it comes to major installation work.
Don’t Forget That We Do Commercial Roof Replacement Too
Of course, residential homes aren’t the only buildings with roofs in need of replacement. Commercial roofs are a big part of our business as well. Granted, this requires significant training and expertise. Here are some of the roof installation and repair work we do for businesses in Detroit and Ann Arbor:
- Flat Roof Repair (built-up roofing)
- Grease-Resistant Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) Roofing
- 17-Point Roof Inspections
