Roof Replacement and
Roof Repair Specialist(703) 475-2446
There are several variables to be considered, but since our roofing crews are very well experienced they will get most jobs done in one day. This may come as a surprise to you! The benefit of using a roofing company that has 40 years replacing and repairing roofs is that efficiency has become second nature.
There are not many obstacles that slow us down. On a typical shingle roof without damage to the actual roof structure, we will have the new roofing materials on your home and your property cleaned up by the end of the day. A roof on a new constructed house will be completed in a single day, unless you have chosen specific roofing materials that require more time to install. When you roof has complications, obviously there will be extra days involved. The first time we go to see your roof we give it a thorough inspection to determine the full extent of the damage. Shingles with cracks or curled up edges, or mossy covering are a sure sign your roof has been leaking for some time.
We look for evidence of sagging, rotting and deterioration of the roof deck, trusses, soffits and fascia board. Anything that has lost its original integrity needs to be taken away and rebuilt. The condition of the attic is another important aspect of a roof inspection. Poor ventilation leads to serious water damage and roof leaks, so we include the solution for those problems in your roof replacement. The initial inspection includes checking for leaks around objects that penetrate the roof deck. Chimneys, vent pipes, roof vents, roof fans and skylights are common areas where leaks occur. Before we lay down the waterproof barrier all rotted wood must be replaced. A new roof should last for at least 15 years. Its life expectancy will be greatly reduced if new roofing materials are installed over a questionable base.
Keep in mind there will be advance preparation before the day of the actual construction. We will guide you through the process of choosing the colors and styles you prefer. We will also do a walk-though of your home with you to point out ceiling fixtures and other precious items that should be taken down temporarily. We’ll show you how to protect your ornamental lawn plants and gardens from the additional traffic. Our crews are sensitive to the disruption the construction will cause to your normal routine, so we work with quick precision. This should answer the question, “how long does it take to install to install a new roof,” but please call us if you have other concerns.
