Roof Replacement Schedule

As most roofs are made of asphalt shingles, it is likely that your roof also falls under the same category. It can take up to 20 years after installation before the asphalt shingles are due for a replacement. If your roof is reaching the end of its lifespan, then it's time for you toc onsider what may be the best time of the year to have your roof replaced.

 

Winter

It comes as no surprise that winter is certainly not the best time to get your roof replaced.Apart from ice, snow, and cold winds, the cold temperatures may cause the roofing surfaces to become brittle and hard. Because of this, the shingles maycrack during the installation. The workers may not be able to work in extreme weather conditions, as the tools that roofers use do not work well in cold temperatures.

Spring

If your roof is deteriorating or even has a few minor problems, these issues will only worsen over the winter as the snow and ice pile up, melt, and refreeze. However, if you aren't having any problems with your roof, spring could be a great time to replace it.

It is important to note that it is typically busier in the roofing industry during the summer and fall months, so materials and labor may be less expensive in the spring.

Summer

A great time to get your roof replaced is at the beginning of summer. However, there may be issues when the summer's heat is at its peak.The hot temperatures and humidity may make it difficult for the workers to work for long periods or even damage the materials if not handled carefully. The asphalt in the roofs may soften, making it less durable.

Fall

The best time of the year to get the roof replaced is the fall season. The temperature ranges between 45 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. The relatively cooler temperatures of Spring and Fall will allow the labor to work for longer hours without any inconvenience. The mild weather will make installation easier.

Moreover, the shingles will have plenty of time to seal effectively before the winter weather hits.

Keepin mind that the busiest time of year for roof replacement is fall or late summers. Roofing companies are bustling with clients signing contracts for either replacement or installation due to spring and summer storms.
