If there’s no real emergency, though, you might be wondering, “What is the best season to get a roofing replacement or repair?”
Springtime Is Best Time
Take note that there isn’t a ‘wrong’ season for roofing work, just as there’s no wrong season for a bathroom remodeling. Highly-trained roofers can handle work efficiently unless the weather or the temperature makes it too dangerous to work.
However, if you really want to choose a particular season, you might want to wait until spring is almost over. Yes, that’s right. Instead of getting into it as soon as spring arrives, waiting out for a few weeks would be wiser.
Why Not Fall?
For one, fall is considered a prime time for roofing and other home improvement projects. The weather is good and many homeowners are excited to get their projects before winter comes.
The problem with this is that in the fall, you might have to compete with other clients for a good date. You might get frustrated when you hear over and over that contractors are busy with prior commitments. And when the business is this busy, some contractors may even cherry-pick projects or even raise their prices.
Why Not Summer?
During summer, you might have limited choices because, for one, many workers are not comfortable working when the temperature gets too high. Also, working on the roof in extreme heat can be hazardous. Shingles can get damaged easier during summer. too.
It is better to get a roof replacement during spring because the weather is more predictable. When roofing work is being done, keeping the roof and your home dry is of utmost importance. Also, because it is not as busy as it is during the fall, the prices may be lower as well.
You might also want to consider getting a roof installation at the same time you’re having other renovations done, like a kitchen remodeling. This way, you’ll only need to deal with the hassles of getting home improvement once. You might also get a discount from your contractor.
Truly, though, the best time to get your roof replaced is when you are able to plan ahead for it. Instead of making decisions impulsively, it is best if you can spend time choosing a contractor you can really trust instead of going for the only one available on short notice. It would also be better if you take the time to select the best roofing material for your home.
