How long does it take to replace a Roof?
Whether replacing a Commercial Roof or a Residential Roof, it is a labor-intensive project, and depending on the type of Roof, could take anywhere from a few days to 2 or more weeks. The time involved is substantially affected by the weather, as well. Wind, snow, rain, or even just the threat of one of these and will slow the process considerably. We at Coast Roofing pride ourselves on getting the job done in the most efficient and time-friendly manner.
For Built-Up Roofs, removing and replacing the Roof will probably proceed at a rate of approximately 1,500 square feet per day. For single-ply Roofs, the rate is closer to 2,000 to 4,000 square feet per day. Careful planning and close project management can reduce some of the delays caused by bad weather.

Can I replace missing and damaged tiles or shingles without calling a Roofing Contractor?
It is always recommended that you use a Professional Licensed Roofer, but in the event of an emergency, it is possible for you to replace the shingle or broken tile yourself. If you have any doubt or uncertainty, Contact Coast Roofing to perform a Professional Roofing Inspection in the area in need of repair.
- Composition Shingle Replacement:
For composition shingles, roofing cement can be used to repair torn or curled shingles. Stabilize repaired shingles with nails or a heavy board until the cement has dried. To replace a composition, carefully lift the shingle above the missing shingle, then trim and place the new shingle underneath so that it doesn’t catch on any edges (it may be necessary to remove excess staples or nails). Carefully nail the new shingle into place.
- Wood shingles or Shakes Replacement:
For wood shingles, repairs are best done with an aluminum piece that can be slid under the shingle. This should protect the exposed area, while not being visible from below.
To replace a wood shingle requires a special tool, a shingle ripper, to slip under the shingle and hook and cut the nail. The nail can also be cut with a hacksaw, but is difficult to do. Slip the new shingle into position, but leave it ¼ inch longer than the other shingles. Then nail it into place right below the end of the overlapping shingle above. Finally, with a block of wood against the shingle butt, drive it up the last ¼ inch to bend the nails under the shingle above.
- Tile Replacement:
To replace a tile, remove all of the broken pieces, then gently lift the tiles and slide the new tile into place until it hooks over the batten.
