How Long Does Roof Installation Take?

At Timberman Roofing in Valparaiso, Florida Panhandle, we often get asked “how long does it take to install a roof” and the answer isn’t exactly that simple. When installing a new roof, there are numerous factors that come into play to determine how long the roof may take to complete. Today, we’ll be discussing these various factors. Have additional questions? Interested in scheduling roof installation in Valparaiso or the surrounding Florida Panhandle areas? Contact Timberman Roofing today.

Factors To Consider

Size of Home

Typically a home under 3,000 square feet can be completed in 1-2 days as long as materials are readily available, the roof is easily accessible, weather permits and the roof isn’t extremely complex and hard to navigate. Over 3,000 square feet and it can start taking a bit longer.


Depending upon how difficult it is to access your roof or certain portions of your roof can also play a big role in how long it can take to install a new roof on it. The more accessible to the roofers, the easier and quicker the project will be. Roofs that are more steep, complex, etc. may make it more difficult to install as well, increasing the length the project may take.


This one is unfortunately out of the control of both the roofer and the homeowner (unless you have some sort of magical powers we don’t know about…) and can play a big role in delays, especially in the Florida Panhandle. Rain and moisture can compromise the roofing materials and installation of the roof, typically a nice, warm, sunny day is needed.


When it comes to materials, a few factors can play a role. Whether the materials is readily available or on backorder can greatly affect the project timeline. Certain materials are harder to install and take more time than others, typically a shingle roof is quite quick, but other materials may not be.
