What Time of Year Is Best to Replace a Roof?

Having a new roof installed is a big job and needs a great deal of planning before work can even begin. Deciding if a roof replacement is necessary or not is half the battle. The next big question you have to ask yourself is when to schedule the replacement.

One of the best times of the year to schedule your roof replacement is in the fall. Here are some reasons why fall roof planning is ideal and why you should schedule with Sunshine Contracting Corp for this fall.

Better Weather Conditions

The fall has the best weather for replacing your roof. In the spring and summer, the weather can be very unpredictable, with storms that come out of almost nowhere and high temperatures. These unpredictable changes in the weather could cause delays and other issues during installation. High summer temperatures may require the installers to need more frequent breaks to stay hydrated and to avoid working during the hottest times of the day.

By scheduling your replacement in the fall, you avoid most of these issues. While no one can fully predict the weather, it is much more predictable in the fall. The rainy season is ending and temperatures are going down. The installation team won’t need to avoid working during certain hours of the day and aren’t as likely to be delayed by weather concerns.

The Spring and Summer Took Their Toll

The unpredictable and sometimes harsh weather of the spring and summer takes a toll on your roof. With heavy rain, possible hail and strong winds, it can do a lot of damage to your roof. Even the sun does its part on an older roof. Depending on the type of roofing material that was used, your roof may be taking extra damage.

Since the best time of year to replace your roof is in the fall, it’s important to begin considering whether you need a roof replacement during the summer. If you find that your roof took some damage and may not make the whole way through another year, it’s definitely time to schedule that replacement.

Prepare for the Winter

The fall does give your roof a break after the spring and summer, but it doesn’t last long. After fall comes winter, and with it, even more damaging weather. Heavy snowfall could put a great deal of pressure onto your roof. As the water freezes and unfreezes, it could damage the shingles on your roof. All of this stress on an aged roof may lead to leaks and other negative effects.

Replacing your roof before the winter even begins steels it for the coming weather. No matter what foul weather comes, your new roof can resist it. Your roof replacement will also benefit you in other ways during the winter. Newer roofing materials are more energy-efficient. There’s a good chance that you’ll save money on your energy bill once winter starts.
