How long does it take to restore a roof?

Restoring your roof for the first time and hopefully, the last time is bound to raise a heap of questions. Because it’s not something you do on the regular, it’s understandable that you’re wondering how long it takes to restore a roof. The time it takes to restore a roof is determined by a range of different factors and that’s what we’re going to outline in this post.

Size
The size of your roof is one thing that impacts how long it will take to restore. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out the relationship between roof size and restoration time: bigger the roof, the longer it takes.

Condition
The condition of your roof will determine what needs to be done to restore it. If there are lots of broken or missing tiles, cracked pointing, rusted gutters or roof is in general shambles, then it may take a while to restore. Maybe your roof is structurally sound and only requires cosmetic attention – in this case, restoring your roof will take a lot less time. Whether or not you’re going to repaint your roof also determines the length of your restoration.

Material
Some materials take longer to install on your roof than others. Heavy materials like concrete and clay tiles require more time for preparation and installation than lightweight sheets of metal. In saying this, you shouldn’t let installation time dictate which material you use on your roof. Take your time in selecting your roof material to make sure it’s the right fit for you.

Pitch
The pitch is another factor which plays a role in how long it will take to restore your roof. Steep roofs can prove difficult to work on, with extra measures required in order to perform the task safely. Further measures may be required if your roof is difficult to access, with trees blocking the way up or down. Flat roofs, on the other hand, are much easier to work on. This will allow your roofing professionals to lay down your materials a lot quicker.

Number of workers
Finally, the number of workers on the job will also influence the time it takes to restore your roof. Here, it’s important to hire a company with a good work ethic who collaborate as a team.
