If you’ve been putting off roof replacement for a while, you may wonder if now’s a good time to start. Well, it is. Summer, especially the beginning of the season, is an ideal time to have your roof replaced primarily due to the favorable temperatures. Starting the summer off with a brand new roof adds value, comfort, energy efficiency, beauty and durability to your entire property.
Check out these reasons why summer is a great time for a roof replacement in New England.
1. Nice Weather
Summer is a lovely time of year for all kinds of outdoor projects, and roof replacement is no exception. Winter has snow and ice, spring has lots of rain, and fall can start to get quite cool. This leaves summer with the most desirable temps for a roof installation job, especially early in the season. Aside from the occasional thunderstorm, summer has the most consistent weather, making it unlikely that the roofing crew will be sidelined by weather events.
Asphalt shingle roof installation requires temperatures that stay evenly in the mid-to-high range temperatures for a long period of time, another reason why summer is an ideal time for this type of project.
2. Extended Daylight
Summer is the perfect time to book roofing work. With just spotty chances of rain, summer temperatures are more consistent which allows the materials to remain stable with fewer technical problems. Plus, the longer days of extended daylight means your roofers can work later in the day to complete the job quicker. Just as a comparison, if you have roofing work done in winter, your roofers have to wrap up by 3 p.m. to be able to clean up and leave by 4 p.m. when the sun starts to set. In summer, it’s light till 8:30 p.m. or so, which means no one has to rush.
3. Affordable Rates
Spring and early summer are peak times for roofers. When roofers are very busy, they raise their rates. When they start to slow down, such as toward late summer, they may lower their rates, giving you a better deal. That’s because they want to remain busy and are looking to use up their products and materials before the slow season starts.
In the end, the best season to replace your roof is whatever works for you. You can’t always choose the season, especially if you have storm damage that results in a huge leak. When time isn’t on your side, you have no choice when to book work. But if you do have a choice, you can’t go wrong with a roof replacement in summer.
