When it comes to roof replacement, one of the general questions that spring to mind is, “How long will it take?” The timeline relies on a host of factors. Our roofing experts discuss more here.

How Long Does It Take to Replace a Roof?

According to roofing companies, the roof of an average home (3,000 square feet or less), can generally be replaced in one day. In extreme cases, it can take three to five days, sometimes up to three weeks, depending on the weather, complexity, and accessibility of the roof.

What Determines How Long Replacing a Roof Will Take?

These are the main factors that determine the timeline of a roof replacement project:

  • The weather on the day of roof replacement. It is crucial that a roof is replaced in the right conditions. A roof must be replaced in the right conditions. Roofers do not replace roofs when it is too hot, raining, snowing, or freezing outside. So if the contractor sees rain in the forecast, the roof replacement will likely be delayed until the roof is dry enough to work on.

  • The complexity of the roofing structure. A steep roof with hips, valleys, levels, and angles is more difficult and takes longer to replace than a simple roof on a single-story home.

  • The accessibility of the roof. This refers to the ability of the contractor to access the roof. A home with a fence, rows of bushes, and no paved area near the access point of the roof can require a longer time for a roof replacement compared to a home with uncomplicated access points to the roof.
