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)
Most roofing experts consider spring to be one of the best seasons to replace your roof. The first best thing is its open schedule. Those who didn’t schedule a replacement during the winter season are more likely going to do it during springtime.
Another benefit homeowners can enjoy from replacing in this season is lower humidity. With the temperature dropping gradually, moisture buildup in roofs wouldn’t be much of a problem. This would lessen the chances of ruining your roof during replacement.
The only disadvantage is the possibility of rain. The wetter season can cause a delay in the timeline of the project.
Summer (June 21 to September 21)
Early summer is the better option when you want to get a new roof! This time is perfect because of the consistent warm weather. Similar to spring, lower humidity can also be enjoyed. Moreover, the warmth from the sun can help quicken the replacement process since most roofing materials and sealants work perfectly, thus making the whole process foolproof.
The later part of summer can make the working conditions of the crew unbearable. The extreme heat can affect the crew and damage the materials needed for installation.
Another disadvantage to consider is the availability of roofing crews. It may be harder to schedule a roof replacement at this peak season.
Fall (September 22 to December 20)
Gotta save the best one for last! Fall is considered to be the best time for roof replacements. The temperature is ideal for both the crew and materials, thus keeping the project timeline intact. Moreover, the timing allows the roofing materials such as shingles to seal properly.
Expect this time to be busy so it might be best to plan ahead of time to secure a spot!
