That depends on several factors. Of course bad weather can prolong the time frame.
An average sized home is 25 to 30 squares. If it’s a one layer tear off you can expect 3 to 5 working days depending on the pitch of the roof. 2 layer tear offs take longer as there are more shingles to tear off and more trash to dispose of.
The size of the crew is also a factor, we have a crew of 4 very experienced roofers. We may not get the job done as fast as large crews but the quality of the installation will far surpass a large crew with inexperienced installers.
We don’t tear off if there’s a good chance of rain. We also try to tear off an area and install the shingles the same day. The best way to dry a roof is with new shingles. If we do only get synthetic felt installed and there’s a chance of rain we’ll also tarp the area over the felt paper. We do everything we can to make sure your house stays dry during the installation process.
A new roof is a good investment when selling your house especially in Springfield MO where we have such extremes of weather. Roofs account for 40% of a home’s curb appeal. It’s also very obvious from the ground and could cause potential buyers to walk away.
How old is your house and do the shingles on the roof still look good from the ground ? Buyers also like buying a house where they won’t have to replace it in 5 to 10 years, or sooner if the roofs are in bad shape. Mildew, especially on the North side of the house discolors the shingles and is very common on older roofs in the Midwest.
