Understanding Roofing Project Timelines: What to Expect from Start to Finish

At Kore Roofing, we understand that undertaking a roofing project can seem daunting. One of the most common questions we get from homeowners is about the timeline: how long will it take from start to finish? In this blog post, we’ll break down the typical timeline of a roofing project, from initial inspection to final cleanup, and offer tips on how you can prepare for each stage.


A clear understanding of the roofing project timeline is crucial for managing expectations and ensuring a smooth process. By knowing what to expect at each stage, you can better prepare your home and family for the work ahead.

Initial Inspection and Consultation

The first step in any roofing project is the initial inspection. During this phase, our expert team at Kore Roofing will thoroughly inspect your current roof to assess its condition and identify any issues that need addressing. This is also the time for you to ask questions and discuss your needs and preferences.

  • Time frame: 1-2 days.

Selecting Materials and Signing Contracts

Once the inspection is complete, the next step is selecting the materials for your new roof. We offer a wide range of options, including asphalt shingles, metal roofing, and more. Our team will help you choose the best material based on your budget, aesthetic preferences, and the specific needs of your home.

  • Time frame: 1 week.

Scheduling and Preparation

After selecting the materials and signing the contract, we’ll schedule your roofing project. Preparation is key to ensuring everything goes smoothly. We’ll provide you with a detailed schedule, and you can prepare your property by removing any items near the work area and ensuring easy access to your roof.

  • Time frame: 1-2 weeks.

Removal of Old Roofing

On the scheduled start date, our crew will begin by removing the old roofing materials. This process involves stripping away the existing roof to inspect the underlying structure. Depending on the size and complexity of your roof, this can take a few days.

  • Time frame: 1-3 days.

Installation of New Roofing

With the old roof removed, the installation of your new roof begins. This is the most critical part of the project. Our skilled team works diligently to install the new materials with precision and care. Weather and roof size are significant factors that can influence the duration of this phase.

  • Time frame: 3-7 days.

Inspection and Quality Assurance

Once the new roof is installed, we conduct a thorough inspection to ensure everything meets our high standards and local building codes. This step is crucial for guaranteeing the longevity and performance of your new roof.

  • Time frame: 1 day.

Final Cleanup and Homeowner Walkthrough

After the inspection, our team will clean up the worksite, removing all debris and ensuring your property is left in pristine condition. We’ll then conduct a final walkthrough with you to review the work and answer any remaining questions.

  • Time frame: 1 day.

Potential Delays and How to Handle Them

While we strive to adhere to the timeline, unforeseen circumstances like inclement weather or unexpected repairs can cause delays. Maintaining open communication with our team at Kore Roofing is essential to address any issues promptly and minimize disruptions.
