Roof Construction and New Roofing Installation Should be able to be Completed in Less than a Week in Most Cases
By Mark J. Donovan
||Your home’s roof is one of the most vital components of your home. The roof protects the home and its occupants from rain, snow, ice and wind. It also plays a major role in providing structural integrity to the home. The roof ties together all of the exterior walls.
Consequently when building a roof it is important that it is built properly and is structurally sound. Part of the equation in determining the type of roof, the roof pitch, and the size and location of roof trusses and/or roof rafters and joists is the local climate. Northern areas where there is large annual snow falls require heavier duty roof construction.
The actual time required to install a new roof is dependent upon two major factors, carpenter skills and weather conditions. In addition, roofing materials need to be on the job site for roof construction to occur. This may sound like an obvious thing, however many times construction materials don’t show up on the job site when planned or expected, thus dragging out or delaying the roof construction.
Delaying the installation of a new roof with these types of conditions is a recipe for major water damage to the interior of your home. It can also mean the slow decay and rot of roof framing members.
