If you need to get your roof repaired, one of your first questions is probably going to be ‘How long will it take?’ – as well as ‘How much will it cost?’. The answer to both of these questions (and, in fact, the majority of roofing project questions) is that it depends on the individual project. Every roof is different, and the requirements for one project won’t necessarily be the same as the requirements for another, so questions like these need to be answered on a case-by-case basis. We can, however, suggest a few factors that will affect the duration and cost of your roofing project, so that you can start putting plans in place.
Adverse weather conditions
While most roofing specialists try their best to work in all weathers, there are times that roofing work will need to be put on hold. This is not because roofers do not want to work in wet or icy weather, but rather that doing so could leave your home vulnerable to moisture.
The size of your property
To give you a rough idea of how long roofing repairs take on properties of different sizes, it is usually possible to repair a roof on a small home within two or three days. If you live in a larger property, it could take longer – up to about two weeks, or maybe slightly longer.
The scope of the work
If you just need a straightforward repair for one element of your roof, then this will take less time than if you need a full roof replacement, or if you need repairs to your guttering and downpipe as well. Another factor that may affect timings is your roofing materials, as some take longer to work with than others. It really depends on the elements that need repairing.
The best way to find out how quickly your roof will be repaired is to call a roofing specialist. This way, you can provide them with the measurements and specifications they need to give you an accurate estimate on timings. The time it will take to repair your roof will largely depend on the size of the roof and how much of it needs repairing – obviously, if you live in a mansion and need the entire roof repaired, this is going to take much longer than if you just need a few tiles repaired on your one-bedroom flat’s roof. If you are not sure what information you need to provide a roofing specialist with in order to get a quotation, don’t worry: they can talk you through this on the phone and answer any questions that you have.
