When replacing your roof, it’s always best to plan ahead. The life expectancy of a typical roofing system is around 16-20 years, so if your roof’s age is already within or has exceeded this range, then it’s time to get serious and start looking at roof replacement options. Of course, if your roof is in desperate need of replacement due to recent storm damage, the best time to replace your roof is now.
When planning your roof replacement project, it is important to keep in mind that most contractors have busy seasons and slow seasons. The busy season is months of heavy rainfall, storms and snow. The professional services of these roofers will be in high demand during these periods, since lots of homeowners will be needing some form of roofing work done. The slow seasons, on the other hand, are those times when the weather is actually calm and the demand for roofing services is relatively low. Summer is one of those periods, which is why it is a good time for roof replacements.
Benefits of Replacing Your Roof in Summer
If you’ve been planning to get a new roof over your head, then waiting until this summer to contact your roofing contractor has its perks. These include:
Possibility of negotiating a better price.
Less stress and frustration and good relations with the contractor
You will likely get better installation quality since the roofers have more time to focus on your roofing job
You will not have to wait a long time for your project to get started
One downside to roof replacement during summer, however, is when you are installing shingles. The intense heat can make the shingles softer and if the roofer is not careful with their nail gun, the nails can go through the shingles more easily.
