Understanding The Best Time To Replace A Roof

The Big Question: When Is The Best Time of Year To Replace A Roof?

For the majority of homeowners, replacing a roof is only done when they have experienced storm damage. However, if you’re able to take the time to have a roof replacement without making a last-minute decision, it can be confusing as to what time of the year is best to replace a roof. The busy time for roofers falls between late summer and early fall but in reality, the best time to replace a roof is spring/early summer. These seasons are best because the rain has stopped or slowed down and the extreme heat of summer hasn’t set in.

The only downside of replacing your roof during this time is a lot of other homeowners are also trying to do the same as well. Timing can become harder but with a reliable contractor, scheduling shouldn’t be an issue. If you are unable to replace a roof during these seasons, there are opportunities in the other season to install a roof.

Replace A Roof In Winter?

It is possible to reshingle a roof in the dead of winter here in the midwest. Roofing contractors have few issues installing a roof during the extreme heat of summer but during winter temperatures, shingle manufacturers specify a certain temperature for application. When temperatures drop below 40 degrees, replacing a roof can become problematic. Insufficient heat or sun exposure prevents the roof from sealing correctly. It is always important to ask questions to your roofing contractor first.
