The Size of Your Home: It makes senes that the larger your home, the more materials required to construct a roof. So expect if you have a larger home to have longer construction times, and vice versa.
Type of Roof Material: As shown in the examples above, some roof materials are easier to work with, while others require special expertise and extra equipment. Heavier materials may necessitate additional framing.
Weather: Weather plays a huge factor! Workers can’t complete a job in the rain or snow. Similarly, in the blistering heat, crews will need to take frequent breaks. Pray for optimal conditions!
The complexity of Roof Architecture: Roofs come in a wide variety of sizes, angles, and designs. make installation easier or more challenging. Not very steep roofs make it easier for the crews to get around on, which speeds things up, whereas steep pitch roofs make the job naturally dangerous, slowing things down dramatically. In addition to the angle and steepness of the roof, there is the overall design. Some houses are unique with artistic divots, dips, and other features that add aesthetic. At the end of the day, each house is different and so is each roof replacement.
Historical Significance: Was your home built in the early 1900’s? Did any notable movies or people live in it? Well, if so, your home may be considered historically significant by your state, county, or city. This could extend the time to get permits and process the proper paperwork.
Prior Damage: If the decking, attic, and overall integrity of the home have been damaged then you can expect to have a longer construction period and (possibly) incur higher prices. Your professional crew may need to repair more than the roof if your home has sustained significant damage from a natural disaster, fallen tree, heavy snow, etc.
