How Long Does It Take To Replace A Roof?
Depends on a several variables, from the surface area to the damage we discover after tear-off. Even weather will play a factor on what we can complete. After we get your materials ordered, we’ll schedule your replacement for a clear day. Once we get going, it happens quick.
For normal jobs, this means we’ll replace it in a few days or less. For complicated “restoration” jobs, where extensive damage is a present, roof replacement could take up to a couple weeks. Before we get going, we’ll communicate exactly what to expect on your specific job.
How Much Does It Cost To Replace A Roof? Average cost?
Good question! No job is the same and there is more to a roof than what we can see from the street. Prior to an actual estimate completed by a licensed and insured roofer, any figure or range given is a guess without much effort. From community to community, building codes are inconsistent and tend to raise the average cost of a roof in Illinois.
Even within a neighborhood of cookie-cutter homes, the estimate will be different from house to house. Therefore, you should hire an experienced local roofer who has insurance and is licensed with the state or county.
How Often Should I Replace My Roof? Best Time for a Roof Replacement?
Most roofs will need to be replaced every 15-30 years. This is heavily dependent on the materials used and weather patterns since. Even the 50 year rated shingles will have spots with excessive wear-out. We highly recommend annual roof inspections, especially once the roof reaches the age of 8-10 years old.
The best time to replace your roof is when you notice the following red flags.
- Cracked-Missing Shingles
- Gravel in downspouts
- Ceiling begins to have:
- Water Stains
- Nail Blisters
- Paint Cracking
- Water Dripping
- Drywall Sagging
- Mold or Rot
First sign of any of these, please call our team. Our team will check it out and fix it early.
How do I… Should I Replace My Own Roof?
Make sure you call a professional roofer before you start and after you finish. It’s a difficult skillset that takes many years to develop correctly. The tools required for efficient roof replacement can be expensive and an average joe will only use these once or twice. Roofing is also extremely dangerous and can be fatal.
But, if you insist on replacing your own roof, we recommend working on a team. In case an accident occurs, you can get immediate medical attention. Also, check with your homeowner’s insurance to confirm you’ll still be eligible to file a claim for work that wasn’t done by a professional.
Do You Offer Commercial Roof Replacement?
Unfortunately, we cannot offer commercial roofing, even to business that love our work. We only have a license to work on residential homes in Illinois. If you are in need of a commercial roofer, we are happy to recommend a local or regional professional that will best suite your needs.
