With the change of seasons comes a host of seasonal home maintenance projects: changing filters, retiring lawn equipment, and cleaning out gutters.
Perhaps the most important part of homeownership is taking good care of your roof – it is, after all, the roof over your head! But how much time does it take to complete a roof repair, once it is apparent you will need one?
Read on to discover what you can expect when repairing your roof in Melbourne, FL.
Roof Repair Indicators
The time frame for your roofing company to complete their project depends on the extent of the damage. Some indicators that your existing roof is no longer holding, and that it is time for a free roofing estimate, are as follows:
- Depending on your roofing material, the shingles or tiles on your roof are either missing or damaged in areas, or show open patches. Shingles could also be curling or appear thin.
- Moss has started growing in the crevices of the roof’s angles. This most often occurs in humid areas.
- Granules run off your roof and into your gutter, and now your shingles lack protective qualities. The best way to observe this is during your monthly home maintenance process. Any noticeable changes in the amount of granule runoff could indicate need for a new roof.
- Any open holes in the roof can lead to water damage. You can check this by viewing the inside of your attic on a sunny day – if any light comes through, that means bad weather can enter too.
Once you have assessed the need for a roof repair, hiring the right roofing contractors is the next step. Because the choice of contractor can significantly change the timeline of your roofing project, Storm Guard Roofing provides free estimates upfront to residents of Melbourne.
The factors that affect your project’s timeline are: square footage, roofing material, method used by the roofing crew, and finally the historical significance of the home.
The larger the home, the more roofing materials and labor must be used during install. The type of material and method used can also affect timeline: asphalt shingles, steel and concrete tile all have varying timespans. For more difficult materials like metal and wood shakes, you can expect anywhere up to two weeks for the install.
Additionally, with a historically significant home in Melbourne, more care must be taken to protect the integrity of the structure. Therefore, you can expect the project to take a few more days.
The average roof repair project takes anywhere from 1-14 days, with 1-7 days being most typical. With Storm Guard Roofing by your side, expert care will be taken to ensure a satisfactory project timeline.
