Need a Roof Replacement Fast?
Portland’s rainy season is quickly approaching. With so many people still working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important now than ever to keep up with roof maintenance and required roof repairs. No one wants to find themselves with a leaky roof on a rainy day or to have their project delayed by the rainy season. Learn more about the factors that influence the time it takes for a roof replacement in the following article. We’ll also cover signs that you need a roof replacement rather than roof repair so that you can schedule your project before the rainy season!
Factors That Affect Roof Replacement Times
There are many different variables that affect roof installation time, including the scope of the project, the weather, materials, insurance claims, and other special requirements.
Scope of the Project
One of the most important factors affect the amount of time your roof replacement will take is the scope of the project. The size and pitch of your roof can greatly affect the project time. Additionally, the complexity of your roof’s design affects the roof installation time. If the roof replacement is a tear-off replacement versus a roof covering replacement, it’ll take more time to complete.
It goes without saying that your roofer can’t replace your roof in the middle of a storm. That’s why we suggest that you schedule an estimate with us here at Executive Roof Services before the rainy season is in full swing. Weather delays can prolong the duration of your roofing project which can certainly be frustrating for all involved.
Roof MaterialsCertain roofing materials are easier to install than others, so the roofing materials you select for the project can also affect how long it takes to complete. A standard asphalt shingle roof will be a quicker project than custom cedar shake shingles. However, a talented roofer such as the professionals at Executive Roof Services know efficient ways to install all kinds of roofing materials. Call us today for an estimate!
If you are using insurance to pay for a roof replacement, your project can get held up due to complications during the claims process. Each insurance company is different and the claims process can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to resolve itself. Contact your insurance agent to find out how long it could take and if any holdups in the claims process can disrupt the project.
Sometimes other requirements may hold up a roofing project such as those from a Homeowners Association (HOA) or historical society. If your home is a historical landmark, there may be extra hoops to jump through when it comes to permits and inspections. Your HOA may require certain styles of roofing or notification before a roofing project can begin. An experienced roofer can help you anticipate any of these issues.

How Do You Know If You Need a New Roof or Roof Repair?
If you’ve never had roof issues before, it can be hard to tell whether the problem is fixable or if it means you need a total roof replacement. Here are a few indications that it’s time for a roof replacement rather than roof repair:
If your roof is leaking water into the home in more than one spot, chances are that you have significant issues with your roofing system. You may need a total roof replacement to prevent water damage to your property. A professional roofing contractor can inspect your roofing system and recommend any needed repairs or replacements.
Multiple Damaged Shingles
It’s not too difficult to replace a few damaged shingles. However, when multiple shingles start curling or cupping, it’s time to replace them. A typical asphalt roof lasts between twenty and twenty-five years. If your roof is old enough to go to college, it might be time to consider a roof replacement.

Sometimes there’s nothing you can do to prevent roof damage. Maybe a tree limb falls onto your roof during a storm, perhaps hail does a number on your shingles. While plenty of roofing problems can be fixed, sometimes it’s more cost-effective to replace the roof rather than repair extreme damage. An experienced roofer can perform a roof inspection and let you know their opinion.
If you look at your roof from the street and it looks like it’s sagging, it’s definitely time to call the roofing contractors at Executive Roof Services. In many cases, a sagging roof indicates severe roofing issues that need to be addressed. It’s possible that a sagging roof needs replacement.
