Roof Replacement Delays

What Could Delay My Roof Replacement?

The average time between signing a contract and starting the job is four weeks. Once the job has begun, we can guarantee you’ll get the highest quality roof around. If we run into a delay before your job is set for installation, it will be for one of these reasons:


Weather is the roofer’s arch nemesis. We battle it every day when we’re out on a roof whether it is the baking heat or freezing cold. But ultimately we put our workers’ safety above all else. That means gusty winds or slippery conditions are a no-go. Once we start tearing off the roof, we have to install the new one before the rain comes otherwise, it could seriously damage your home. We try to schedule installations around the weather. Unfortunately if it rains or snows, multiple homes could be pushed back throwing everyone off schedule.

Previous Jobs

We know how frustrating it can be for contractors not to show up when you want them to. That’s why we make it a priority to stick to the schedule. But if any ongoing jobs cause us to shift our schedule, you’ll be the first to know about it. We usually schedule one day in advance to prevent false promises and to make sure previous jobs are finished.

Hidden Structural Issues

We do our best to learn everything there is to know about your roof before we get to work on it. But sometimes we only discover a structural problem after we’ve removed your old roof. If there are any underlying problems that are either dangerous to our workers or could send your roof tumbling down in the future, we’ll need to fix it before we do anything else.

Special Order Materials

We’ve got great relationships with our vendors, so we rarely run into trouble with getting materials on time. But since their inventory is out of our hands, we sometimes need to wait for them to get a shipment before they can send it to the job site. We do everything we can to get all the materials to your home at the same time, so we can be in and out as quickly as possible.
