At some point you are going to need a new roof. Roofing replacements account for a significant share of the North American roofing business, accounting for more than 90% of both the market’s volume and value. When you do decide to replace a roof, when should you do it to get the most out of your new roofing installation?
When Should you Replace the Roof?
The greatest time to start a new roofing installation is in the fall. Rain, snow, heat, and humidity may all have a significant influence on the process of your roof replacement. These weather conditions may also have an impact on how quickly your job is finished, and starting in the fall is the best way to plan around the weather. Apart from the weather, you should think about how convenient it will be to get a slot on the roofing crew’s schedule since their availability varies substantially during that time of the year.
The move to lower weather creates an ideal opportunity for roof replacements. Temperatures vary from 45 to 85 degrees, providing decent working conditions for the roof installers and enabling them to finish the task on schedule. Because certain storm seasons are in force, autumn may bring greater precipitation than summer, but rain delays are much less likely to be a concern if you take advantage of September weather. Perfect temperatures, low humidity, and little rain provide your roofing materials the time they have to fully seal before the winter months arrive.
The Cons of Fall Roof Replacement
With ideal roofing replacement weather conditions in the autumn and homeowners’ last opportunity to repair their roof before winter arrives, this is often a highly busy period. Because summer is such a busy season, summer work sometimes runs over into the autumn months. This may mean you might not be able to have your roof rebuilt next week. However, throughout the summer and autumn, installers may work longer with fewer bad weather day delays, enabling work to be finished early and the contractor’s replacement timetable to continue on track.
Your new roofing installation will save you possible major roofing emergencies. Make sure you check your roof often and make sure you choose the right people to do the job and plan on replacing your roof in the fall.
