WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO REPLACE THE ROOF?
Spring and early summer are usually cost-effective times to have roof mended or substituted, as it is generally a slower period of the year for roofing industries, and the labor and resource costs tend to be lower. The majority of the roofs are composed of asphalt shingles. If the roof is approaching the end of its lifetime, it is time to think about roof replacement possibilities. But remember the best time of the year to have a new roof installed may not be what you think.
SUMMER? The start of summer is a great time to get your roof swapped. In the middle of summer, when the temperature is at the highest in many areas, it may not the best time. Many roofing companies fix roofs all summer long, but the heat and humidity make it unpleasant for the workers and also affect the roofing materials. The high heat can unstiffen the asphalt in the shingles, making them less sturdy and durable during installation. WINTER? It is perhaps assumed that winter is not the best time to replace a rooftop, for apparent reasons. Aside from the snow, the cold temperature can harden the roofing materials. Shingles could even crack while installing them. Tools that roofers use do not work quite well in cold temperatures, and sealants will not be applied as efficiently; shingles take much longer to obey to one another than in higher temperatures. SPRING? If you are planning to get your roof refurbished or substituted in spring, only if conceivable, you might as well get it done in the fall. If your roof is weakening or even has some little complications, these issues will only deteriorate over winter as the snow piles up, melts, and refreezes. If you are not having any difficulties with your roof, spring could still be a great time to swap it. It is not typically as busy in the roofing business as later in summer and the fall so that materials may be less costly.
FALL? The perfect weather of the year for the installationis in the fall. When the temperature is around 45 and 85F. The cooler temperature permits roof workers to work longer hours without getting exhausted, plus the mild climate makes installation way easier. Shingles then have time to seal successfully and are prepared to take on elements throughout the harsh winter. With that being said, it also falls one of the busiest times for installation every year. Be sure to plan and get in touch with the roofing contractor before their schedule is filled.
