How Long Does It Take to Replace a Roof?

Getting a Roof Replacement

A roof replacement for your home can take anywhere between one to twelve days (even longer if unforeseen circumstances arise). On average, roof replacements don’t need to take too long, especially if you have a skilled team handling the job. However, there are various factors that can affect the project’s timeline.  

What Affects How Long a Roof Replacement Takes?

Several factors can affect how long your home’s roof replacement will take:  

Roof Accessibility

The ability of your roofing contractor and their team to access your roof may impact the roof replacement. For instance, if your home is surrounded by many bushes, trees, or fences that get in the way of the roofers and the equipment, it could take longer for the project to be done.

Roof Materials

There are many different roofing materials to choose from when getting a roof replacement, and some roof types will take longer to install than others. For example, metal and tile roofs are among the most durable and long-lasting roofing materials, but they can take longer to install initially as opposed to asphalt roofs which are designed to be installed quickly and replaced more frequently.  

Home Size

In general, the larger your home is, the longer it will take to get the roof fully installed. Some small homes can be done in a day, no problem, while other, larger homes will need at least a few days to complete. 


Weather, as we all know, is very unpredictable. Installing a roof is unsafe for the workers and the roofing materials when there is rain, snow, or very hot or cold temperatures. If bad weather is on its way, your contractor will have to delay the project until it’s safe to continue.
