Lowcountry Roofing: Quality Roofer in Charleston SC
If you are planning on removing and replacing your roof, more than likely, there are a few questions crossing your mind. One of the primary questions that people ask is how long will it take to remove and replace my roof. Obviously, the answer to this question is going to vary depending on who is doing the job and how many people are doing the job. If the job is being done by Charleston roofing professionals, it is possible that a roof of up to 1500 square feet can be removed in just one day. Similarly, a group of three or four hardy do-it-yourselfers can complete the project in approximately the same amount of time.
There are some things that you should consider if you are going to do a do-it-yourself roof removal. One of the first things that you should think about is pacing yourself. The goal should be to only remove as much of the roof as you are going to be able to safely protect from weather on the same day. This is especially important if you are doing the roof work on your own or with just one other person. Remember, it is always going to take you longer to protect and weatherize your roof than it will to remove old shingles.
Something that will make this do-it-yourself project easier is if you start to tear off in the position that is the farthest away from the trash container that you are going to use. This way, the felt paper that you lay down will not be damaged as you are removing the remaining shingles and debris off of the roof and into the trash container.
