How Long Does Commercial Installation Take

Flat Industrial Roof

Your commercial roofing system is a critical part of your building and is your major defense against costly leaks and weather damage. As time goes on, eventually, even the most durable and well-built roofs will need a new commercial roof replacement.

If your roof is due for a commercial roof replacement, you may be wondering how long the replacement will take.

How do I Know My Roof Needs Replaced?

From severe weather to damage caused by debris falling onto the roof, there are several ways your roof can become damaged, requiring repairs or replacement. Signs your roof may need to be repaired or replaced include:

  • Leaks
  • Drafts
  • Standing water
  • Suffered through severe weather

At ACR1, our experienced team of commercial roofers will evaluate the damage to your roof and make recommendations for repairs or replacement based on the evaluation.

Factors That Affect the Length of Your Roof Installation

We often have customers ask us how long their commercial roof installation will take. We understand that roofing projects can be distracting for you workers who have to deal with the noise of the roof installation. Typically, our crew will work as efficiently to provide you with a new roofing system, but it is important to keep in mind that there are several factors that can affect the length of your roof installation, such as:

Square Footage of the Roof

The square footage of your commercial roof is one of the leading factors that can affect the length of your roof installation.

Timelines for installation will vary based on how large or small the building is.

Current Roof Design

There are a variety of roof designs, and ACR1 has worked with many different designs, large and small. From flat roof installation to customized roof jobs and everything in between, ACR1 has seen it all! If you have a roof with several sections and various heights, it can take more time to install the roof. Additionally, if your roof has a complex design, it can take longer to replace.

Type of Roofing Materials

Your commercial roof replacement timeline will rely on the type of materials that are currently on your roof and the type of materials that will be used for the roof installation.

For example, if your material base is metal, it will take longer to remove than a roof with shingles.

Weather in Your Area

Weather affects almost anything in life, and it can delay your commercial roof construction. Severe weather, ice, or rain could cause a delay in the timeline of your new roof construction.

If your roof is blown off by severe storms, removing those materials safely can also cause construction delays. As the construction starts, we may also come across damage caused by the storm, which could also delay your roof installation.

Monolithic Roofing Options for Your Commercial Roof

At ACR1, we offer a monolithic roofing system that is installed as one complete piece. This means there are no seams giving you many advantages and a longer lifespan for your commercial roofing system.

Our commercial roofing system is 3-4 times thicker than the materials our competitors use and is flexible to the movement of the building to prevent damage. This material offers durability for protection against maintenance damage or items falling onto or being thrown onto the roof.

With its self-flashing feature, there is no need to cut and glue the roofing material to accommodate 90-degree angles and around circular items on the roof. This means that no seams are created, so there is no need to worry about seam failure like with other roofing materials. There are also highly reflective maintenance coatings we can apply to help lower your cooling costs.

Commercial Roof Replacement Timeline

Every roof has its own set of needs. Depending on the state of the current roof and the materials that are available, you will need a custom plan to determine the exact timeline of your commercial roof replacement.

The experts at ACR1 can provide you with a custom commercial roof replacement plan when you work for us for your commercial roofing needs. Contact us today to learn more!
