It is important to consider the dimensions and area of a building when estimating the length of time it will require to complete a roofing or tearoff project, more help? A commercial building of one million square feet will obviously take more time than a small home or office.
A typical reroofing task can be completed within a few short days. Most of the time, weather-permitting of course, we are able to reroof any 5,000 sq. ft. building within two working days.
There are some very large roofing firms that can do this type of tear off in one single day. But that’s only possible because 50 employees may be on site. Roofers should have the ability to complete a project of up to 5,000 square-feet in just two days.
Contractors use a phasing method to handle large-scale projects. It means that when a roof is bigger than the usual size, a certain amount of it will need to be taken off each day.
A phased-project is one where a part of the roof is removed every morning. That same portion is then reroofed in the afternoon. In the evening, the waterproofing of the new seam marks where all work for the day has ended. In the morning, you will begin by tearing off the newly installed water seam.
