Has a hail storm left damage to your roof? Hail or wind damage can be an unexpected and devastating end to your roof that requires repairs or a full replacement—but who has the time to deal with a roof fix?
In many cases, Sandy Spring roofing repair or replacement can happen quicker than you think. Depending on the weather conditions and the type of materials needed for the replacement, you could have a new roof within a matter of days.
Allowing roof damage to remain can require a more expensive (and time-consuming) fix. How long does it take to repair a roof? Learn more from DMV Exteriors!
If the weather cooperates, roof repair can take place over one or two days. Rain, extreme cold, snow, or excessive heat can cause delays in the repair process.
To ensure a quality repair, your roofing contractor should wait until they can start and finish a job during ideal weather conditions. When the temperatures are right and the rain stays away, your new roofing materials cure adequately to deter leaks or other problems after completing the repair.
The type of material used for your roof can add more time to a repair or replacement. An asphalt shingle roof requires the least amount of repair time. Most asphalt repairs or replacements take no more than one or two days from start to finish.
However, slate or concrete tiles can take more than a week to complete your repair or install a new roof.
A large Sandy Spring house with an extensive roof will take longer to repair than smaller homes. This is simply a matter of surface area, and the time it takes to properly lay decking and new shingles for a quality repair or replacement.
Does your roof have a steep slope? Count on adding a little extra time to your roof repair job.
Steep roofs typically take longer to allow the shingles to set correctly. Your DMV Exteriors roofing crew will also take more safety precautions when working on a steep roof. These extra measures can add more time to the job.
A professional Sandy Spring contractor can often repair slight roofing damage within one day. However, if a storm left severe damage through the shingles and into the decking, the repair or replacement can take longer.
For a thorough repair, you want your DMV Exteriors team to take the time they need to fix every roofing layer properly. Rushing through a repair or cutting corners can leave you with additional problems and poor-quality work.
Don’t Delay Roofing Repair
As soon as you notice a problem, talk with a quality roofing repair contractor. Fixing a leak or other damage sooner rather than later can help reduce the time it takes to complete the repair. You might also save money on a fix right away rather than waiting for the issue to become worse.
