Many homeowners wonder what to expect in terms of the amount of work required to install a new roof, as well as the usual timeframe. Typically, it takes experienced roofing professionals anywhere from a few days to a week to install a new roof, depending on the type and size of the roof. Why does it take so long?
Building a new roof involves several steps, including:
- Removing the old roofing system
- Installing the drip edge
- Applying of the underlayment
- Covering a roof with felt paper
- Waterproofing the roof valleys
- Applying starter shingles
- Installing the shingles
- Installing the flashing
- Capping the ridge
- Sealing any exposed nails
While this general outline is followed by most roofing professionals, the length of time to complete each task varies depending on the size of the crew and their efficiency. Working with a roofing contractor that has a strong team and implements an efficient strategy will minimize the time required to complete the roof. At Golden Eagle Roofing Services, our owner is present on every job, ensuring each roof is installed with precision and timeliness.
Whether a roof is being installed on a new structure or as a replacement roof, careful thought must be given to the type of roofing materials that will be used. The right roofing materials can drastically enhance the appearance of a home, as well as save money on energy bills. Some homeowners may prefer to pay more initially for longer-lasting materials, while others may wish to choose something more economical to fit a tighter budget. Style, of course, is a huge factor in selecting a roofing system. Everyone wants a roofing system they can enjoy looking at – a roof that matches their preferences and personality.

Project: Install Asphalt Shingle Roof – I had Edvin do two of my houses. The first was a basic 40 year shingle, however my primary house was done with high end shingles and I was very, very impressed with both his company as a whole and all of his employee’s. All very professional, cleaned up after themselves, no mess was left at the end of the day and he did not cut any corners. I’m very meticulous and all the detail was taken care of from begging to end. Most owners just come and go during the day, but Edvin rolled up his sleeves and worked along side his employee’s from morning into the night. In the dark. Very impressed with all aspects of his work and business.
