The Roof Replacement Process: What to Expect

Replacing your roof will improve your home’s appearance, as well as its functionality. Roof replacement is a straightforward process, but it does pay to know what a typical timeline looks like so you know what to expect. Here’s a brief overview of the roof replacement process, from Sterling Exteriors.

A Few Days or Up to a Week Before Installation Day

Leading up to the agreed-upon start of your roofing project, a dumpster will be delivered to your home, as well as the roofing materials that will be used. To avoid delays, make sure you have someone at home to receive the delivery. You should also already have a set place where your dumpsters and roofing materials may be stored before installation day.

Got any special requests? Make sure they are relayed to your siding and roofing contractor before any work begins.

Installation Day

This is the day your roof replacement project will start. Most of the work at the beginning will involve removing old roofing material to make way for the new. For safety and security purposes, ensure pets and small children are kept away from the job site and that any valuables you have outdoors are stored in a safe place.

Final Day of the Project

Your roofer will showcase the finished project. If everything is in order, your roof repair and replacement contractor can now begin cleaning up, sweeping your home for loose nails and other kinds of debris.

A Few Days After the Job Is Completed

Your dumpster will be picked up. Your roofing contractor will also set a meeting with you to do a general review of the project and collect final payment. This is a good opportunity to talk about any warranty terms that may be unclear to you or any clarifications you might have about your new roof.
