Metal Roofing Installation Time vs. Traditional Roofing …


Metal Roofing Installation Times

How long does it take to install a metal roof as compared to traditional asphalt shingles? Well generally there are some factors involved in determining installation times for both. On average our professionally trained crews can complete metal roofing installations on average sized homes (See Picture) in 2-3 days with complete customer satisfaction and adhering to our Double AA Roofing installation Checklist which is mandatory for each job.

Factors for Installation Time:

1. The size of the roof.
The major factor here is size, the larger the roof the more time it will take a professional crew to install the supplied material.

2. The slope of the roof.
12:12 pitch roof will require fall protection, loading the roof requires more effort and care. A 3:12 roof doesn’t require fall protection, loading the roof is a breeze and materials stay where you put them.

3. The size of the crew.
Our crews work in teams of 3, with a lead installer on each job to ensure our workers complete the job well and work as a team.

4. What kind of prep work is required?
A metal roof can be installed over existing shingles, but if you go with a shingle install it will require a tear-off and extra trip to the dump while a metal roof won’t.

5. There are various types a metal roofing.
Double AA Roofing carries a variety of metal roofing products including standing seam and rib steel which comes in large panels which can be installed much quicker than our metal shingle roofing products.

6. How many angles does the roof have?
A simple Gable roof is quicker while a roofs with dormers and a couple of chimneys will definitely add some time with all the extra flashing and drip edge.

7. Weather.
We sometimes have to wait in the dug-out to see what the weather is going to do before we can start working again. Often times our crews work in light rain and straight through the winter months. On days with severe weather we error on the side of caution.

7. How experienced is the crew?
Double AA Roofing crews have been working strictly with metal roofing since 2005, our workers have all the proper WSIB insurance and have professionally trained in our manufactures materials.
