When is the Best Time to Replace Your Roof?

Roofing Season

While researching roof replacements, you might be wondering when is the best time to start this project. All the seasons have their pros and cons, but a big factor at play here is where your home is located. Some would argue that the summer season is the best time of year to have your project scheduled, but the extreme heat could make it really hard on the crew to complete the project. Additionally, summer is usually the busiest time of year for the roofing industry so availability could be limited. Spring is also a popular season to schedule for due availability being a little more flexible and temperatures in most areas do not scale on the extreme side; however, some areas in the US are quite wet during this time so it would be much harder to schedule. Fall is also a preferred time to schedule a roof installation. It tends to be on the cooler side without being too cold for other operational problems and less busy during the fall season too. Arguably, winter is the worst time to have your roof replaced.

Year-Round Install Teams

If there is an emergency, you might not have much of a choice, but the good news is that winter is usually the most available time for roofing crews to complete a project. Wintertime is a bad time for installations due a few different reasons: roofing materials harden and become brittle, shingles could crack, shingles take longer to adhere than in warmer temperatures, and sealants wouldn’t be applied as effectively. Shingles can only be installed in 40-45 degrees Fahrenheit so any colder than this would be the roof would not be properly installed. So really the best time to replace your roof is up to you!
