How Long Does It Take To Replace a Roof?

Roofer installing asphalt shinglesA roof replacement project temporarily turns your home into a construction site, so it’s natural for you to wonder how long your life will be impacted by one. Though the roof replacement timeline varies based on several factors, it’s probably shorter than you think. In fact, some roof replacement projects can be completed in as little as one or two days.

As you try to determine how long it will take to replace your home’s roof, here are some factors to consider:


If your roof only has a few different facets, then it likely won’t take too long to replace it. If your home is larger or your roof features multiple angles, hips, and valleys, or an overly steep pitch, then don’t be surprised if it takes a few days to replace.

Ease of Access

Ideally, the roofing company can park its trucks and a dumpster in your driveway to speed the tear-off process and make it easy to get the new roofing materials up on the roof. If your home is surrounded by lush landscaping, or there are tree branches hanging near your roof, it’s going to take the crew longer to complete the job.

Factors Out of Your Control

The unexpected can also play a role in how long it takes to install a roof. While most roofing companies will try to plan your project for times when the weather is expected to be good, Mother Nature might have other ideas. Additionally, during installation, it may be discovered that the damage to your roof is more extensive than originally thought, which could add to the timeline.
