What is the Typical Length of a Roofing Project?

by Jan 3, 2019

There are many factors that you have to take into account when trying to figure out the length of a roofing replacement.  Some of the factors to consider are:

    • The square footage of the roof (Average home size is 2,600 square feet)
    • Pitch/Slope of the roof (2-12 would be low slope and 10-12 is steep slope)
    • Number of layers being torn off (Most homes will have 1 layer)
    • Style of roof (Gable, Hip, Mansard or a combination of all)
    • Type of roofing material being installed (Composite Shingles, Clay Tile, Wood Shakes, etc.)

This being said the average home has a 6/12 pitch with a style combination of Gables and Hips and 1 layer of shingles being torn off.  We are assuming that a standard Composite shingle will be installed.  With this roof set up you could assume a full day to a day and a half.  This is with a reputable company and crew size of 6-8 members.  All roofing projects are different, but this will give you an idea of what to expect.  We Hope this helps you when planning your next roofing project.
