The new year is a time for new beginnings, or it can also be a perfect time to get a new roof! However, the term “best” can be subjective since homeowners have their roofs replaced at their preferred time and season.
If you’re thinking of getting a roof replacement, make sure to plan for it. This is an important decision as it would be a costly investment. As a homeowner, you should start by choosing the right roofing contractor that would help you during the replacement process.
Taking the season into consideration is also vital in this project since rain, snow, heat, humidity, and other weather conditions can largely affect the job.
Learn the benefits and disadvantages of each season to determine the best one for you! Winter, spring, summer, or fall: What is the best season to replace your roof?
Winter (December 21 to March 19)
Winter is one of the least busy seasons so the biggest benefit to installing at this time is the roofer’s availability. Roofing problems can be addressed at an earlier and more flexible schedule! Moreover, roof replacements usually cost lower at this time of the year.
However, the duration of the project may take longer than expected. First, putting roofing materials may be harder than usual. This can result in the cracking of these materials. Second, sealants may not adhere properly when temperatures drop lower than 40℉. This will require manual sealing techniques from roofers. Additionally, the temperature can interfere with the crew’s progress.
Spring (March 20 to June 20)
