Is Spring The Best Time To Get Your Residential Roof Replaced?
April 5, 2017 at 9:39 am
When is the best time of year for a roof replacement? This is a common question we receive from our customers and it’s a great question to ask. Many people don’t realize that the time of year when you have your roof replaced can change the nature of the job.
Spring Is Ideal For Roof Replacements
Spring is a great time of the year to have your roof replaced. It tends to not be as busy as during the summer, making it easier to schedule a roof replacement job during a time that is convenient for you.
The weather is also advantageous. The cooler temperature during the spring makes installation easier and shingles will have more time to seal. Extreme heat or cold can affect roofing materials and potentially cause delays in the roofing installation process.
However, if your roof is in need of replacing in the fall, it’s best to have it replaced before winter. While replacing your roof during spring is ideal temperature wise, attempting to delay a roof repair over the winter could lead to leaks and other expense roofing issues.
Now Is Always The Best Time For Roof Repairs
While spring is an ideal time to get your roof repaired or replaced, there is one caveat to this recommendation. Now is always the best time. If you have a roofing issue, especially one that could cause additional damage to your home (such as leaks), now is always the best time to replace your roof.
Avoid trying to delay a roofing project until the spring to squeeze out some more time out of your older roof. It could end up costing your more money.
