How Long Does Roof Restoration Take?


How Long Does Roof Restoration Take?

Dec 29, 2021

A handy guide on the roof restoration process and an approximate time required for it.

Roof restoration has long been considered a wise investment for keeping a home safe and secure. The roof of your home should be able to withstand the test of various weather conditions. But as with anything, it has a life cycle. A few years after it reaches its prime, it becomes susceptible to many problems that could bring about hassles to its occupants.

It is important to hire a reliable restoration contractor's services to get the job done right. The contractor should be able to address any issue that might affect the roof and ensure that it will last for a very long time.

How long does the roof restoration process take?

For most, roofers usually finish the entire process within 7 to 10 days - but it really depends on the size of your roof.

Melbourne Quality Roofing experts break down the entire process into two phases.

Phase 1 involves the cleaning, repair, and other needed actions on the current roof deck.

Phase 2 involves replacing any damaged and missing roofing material, installing ventilation materials, flashings, nail base, ridge vents, and anything else that may be necessary to complete the restoration of the roof.

Let's take a bird's eye view of what is involved in the roof restoration process and how long it takes.

Visual Inspection

In the first stage of a roof inspection, roofers will check if there are any damaged areas and leaks on the roof along with attic inspection and also, pay attention to the condition of the house's ventilation and insulation.

An initial visual check will yield valuable information that is needed to determine what type of repairs need to be done and how much you should expect to spend on them.

The roof inspection report will also include other elements like a ventilation inspection where mould growth, water stains and strange odours might be identified. By getting these areas checked early, you can take care of them immediately.

Consult roofing experts for estimating the overall roof restoration costs.

Once the initial roof inspection is completed, roofers will take requisite measurements and consider the calculations in order to provide you with an estimate of the overall roof restoration costs.

The most important factor which can influence the costs to a great extent is the roofing material. If you use materials that are not easily accessible or are very heavy and bulky, you will end up paying extra for transport, labour and equipment. Moreover, if repairs are needed in areas not accessible by normal means like ladders or scaffoldings, it would require extra costs.

Ensure Warranty

A roof restoration is a major financial commitment, so knowing what the warranty covers is important. Different contractors can offer different terms. Some warranties might only cover new materials, while others might cover both new and existing materials. It's advisable to check whether the period is measured from the installation date or work completion date.
