How long does a roof install take? This is the number one question our clients ask! Read on for the answer.

How Long Does a New Roof Take to install?

Whether you are planning a new remodeling project, preparing your home to put on the market, or simply have an aging roof, at some point you may need a new roof on your home. The number one questions our clients ask us is “how long does a roofing install take?”

The good news is that it doesn’t take long!

We’ve streamlined our process over the years to make each installation as efficient and long lasting as possible. Let’s take a look.

How Long Will It Take Until I Get a New Roof?

The actual roof installation takes 1-3 days. Oftentimes, the longest part is carefully removing the old roof, especially if it’s a very large roof or has multiple layers of old roofing beneath it. Don’t worry, we supply the dumpster and take special care to remove all previous roofing components.

Once we remove the existing roof, we inspect the roof decking below. If we uncover rot or mold that wasn’t visible during the initial inspection, we’ll make sure to take care of those supporting materials first so that your new roof investment is installed on a solid foundation.

Next we’ll complete the new roof and install other new roofing components, such as skylights or new gutter systems. You don’t need separate contractors – Golden Group Roofing can do them all! Then we’ll finish up with your new roof, with a thorough clean up of the ground below.

How Long does the Roof Estimate Process Take?

First, you will need a consultation to get an estimate on the work that needs to be done and the materials that should be used.

Gone are the days of “ballpark estimates” – we use cutting-edge technology and satellite images to get exact measurements of your roof so we can prepare a detailed project plan for you to evaluate.

Once you’ve decided to start the project, it usually takes 1-2 weeks for us to prepare everything for your scheduled installation date. We’ll arrange for your materials and equipment to make sure we have everything we need once we come onsite.

Our preparation also includes pulling permits for you! The Commonwealth of Massachusetts does require a permit for a new roof because it is modifying the structure of the building. We start the process for you so you don’t have to worry.

How Long Until The Roofing Process is Done?

Your roof installation may be physically complete, but we need to close out the permits at the end. This permit protects you the consumer, and you should expect nothing less from a professional contractor.

Last but definitely not least, the homeowner should receive a registered warranty for the roof. You should always expect a premium warranty from your roofer within 4-6 weeks after the roof is complete. This warranty adds a strong layer of extra protection for you as the homeowner, but beware – not all warranties are created equal. Some provide little protection at all. Check out our guide to roof warranties before you make any decisions.
