Ask the Expert: “How Long Will My Roofing Project Take?”

Clock face and calendar composite

Replacing a roof is a big undertaking that is usually preceded by plenty of thought and planning on the homeowner’s part.  There are plenty of reasons to have new roofing in Omaha, NE installed.

  • Purchase of a new home with an old or aesthetically outdated roof.
  • Noticeable signs of aging like cracked, warped and curling shingles.
  • Damage after a major storm or other weather event.
  • High heating and cooling bills and temperature that is uneven between floors of a home.
  • Leaks in the attic during and after heavy rainfall.
  • Need to increase resale value of a home before it goes on the market.

Crunching the Numbers

Depending on the motivation for replacing a roof, homeowners may have different needs and expectations for the timeframe within which they’d like to have the job completed.  That’s why customers often ask how long the average roof replacement takes.  We give them a ballpark figure of anywhere from one day to two weeks. The exact answer depends on a few factors, including:

  • Square footage of the roof. As common sense dictates, replacing a 2,500 square foot roof will likely take longer than it would for a 1,500 square foot roof. It may mean a difference of a day or two.
  • Weather. Since the condition of your home, the integrity of our workmanship and the safety of our workers are Roofing & More’s main priorities, we reserve the right to postpone or pause the work on a roof replacement in the event of bad weather (rain, snow, hail, etc.). A factor that’s out of our control, weather can make a project take longer than planned.
  • Complexity of the project. Sometimes a simple roof replacement turns into a not-so-simple larger-scale home repair. When contractors run into structural problems that weren’t evident during the initial assessment, we alert the homeowner to the extra time and cost required to address the unforeseen issue.

At Total Construction Services, our goal is to communicate clearly with the homeowner throughout the process so that in the event that the job takes longer than expected, the homeowner knows why. We complete any roof replacement in Omaha in a timely manner with thorough excellence. Call today to schedule a free roof assessment.

Beware of Companies Pretending to Be Total Construction Services Inc

Here at Total Construction Services Inc, we are proud of our reputation and our relationship we have with our customers.  You can imagine our surprise when we received a number of Better Business Bureau complaints about our business saying that we made appointments that we didn’t show up for, that you call us and we don’t answer back, we telemarket phones, etc.  These were not us at all!  We have found out that another marketing company is using our name and website as their own to solicit leads and sell them to other remodelers in the Omaha area.

This other telemarketing firm often calling themselves “Total Construction Marketing” is NOT affiliated with Total Construction Services, Inc in any way.  It has been reported that this company solicits setting an appointment for storm damage and they are often rude when given an “no” to their inquiry.  Their phone number is often non-traceable or non-valid if you try to call them back.

Total Construction Services, Inc’s landline phone number is (402) 572-7457 and we encourage you to call this number if you have been contacted by “Total Construction Marketing.”  Ask for Kevin, Mitch, or Patty as the main contacts at Total Construction Services Inc.

We are dedicated to our customers and the residents in the Omaha, NE area and we hate that these scammers are taking advantage of our reputation and good name.  Please let us know if this happening to you so that we can continue to build a case against this group and stop their scam.

Sincerely,
