Once you have your quote and written estimate from your chosen roofing professionals, they will give you a start date for their work (sometimes weather messes with this, as you don’t want roofing going on during poor weather).

Oftentimes roofs need building department permits and such—which takes some time—so plan ahead about two weeks. Your roofing professionals should get all permits ready for you.

Roofing material and a dumpster will be placed in a convenient location—somewhere easy for them to access but not in your way.


Most roofing projects are finished in 1-2 days.

Your roofing professionals should put tarps and other fixings in place to protect your lawn and the sides of your home. After they remove your old roof, repair underneath, and install your new roof, they should perform a good clean-up of debris around your home.

The dumpster and any other surplus material should be picked up at most a day after the project is finished. Your roofing professionals will give you a receipt and a note about your warranty on any of their materials and service you agreed upon before the project began.

Many good roofing professionals will schedule a follow-up to get feedback and to make sure the roof is serving you well.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Who will be at the work site?
A: Your roofing pros, of course. But, more specifically, there should be a project manager or owner of the company supervising your roof installation. This is for quality control.
Q: Do I need to be home when my roofing pros come to do the job?
A: Not necessarily. But you may want to be around in case they have questions. In any case, always talk to your roofers beforehand about where they should park and what work they will be doing. Double-check with them to make sure you don’t need to be home for the project.
