Roof Replacement: Common Questions from Homeowners

It’s common to want to know exactly what’s going on, once the decision to replace your roof has been made. After all, this is a major part of your house. It’s going to have an impact on the quality of living in your home while the work is going on, and after it is finished.

If the roof replacement is done well, it’ll improve the energy efficiency of your house, as well its aesthetics and its selling value.

What’s more, this is likely to prove to be a serious financial investment. To not have a few questions when you’re putting this much money toward your investment is uncommon. If anything, you should want to know everything about the roof replacement process.

Although, if you hire specialists from a reputable company, perhaps you can trust leaving everything to them.

Either way, here are some of the most common questions that homeowners ask before the roof replacement begins.

How long is this going to take?

It’s common to plan a family holiday or at least a small trip away while the roof replacement is taking place, so that those living in the property aren’t disturbed throughout the entire length of the replacement process. The loud power tools involved can prove to be a bit disturbing, and it’s likely you’ll want the team working maximum hours to ensure the project is finished as soon as possible.

The installation time will depend on the size of the roof and the type of replacement taking place, but you can expect the duration of the work to last between one and 14 days. Naturally, a larger roof that needs more work will take longer to repair.

How much mess and disturbance will there be?

Noise pollution could be a worry if you’re in the home during the repairs. A bit of mess around this house is also unavoidable, although experienced teams will do everything they can to keep this under wraps. The tear-off and stripping process and can cause debris and litter to fall into the garden, for example.

Nevertheless, an experienced team will lay tarps on the floor to pick up this debris making it simple to clean up this mess.

What are some problems that could happen?

Sometimes during a roof repair, the professionals will spot an issue with the roof that is likely to cause more problems in the future. A reputable roofing company will conduct a thorough inspection of the roof to spot these problems before work starts.
