What Time of the Year Should You Replace Your Roof?

Roof Replacement

If you have owned your home for 10-20 years, it’s time to start thinking about the best time of year to replace your roof. Depending on the type of roofing your home has, and its last maintenance date, you may want to start thinking about when the best time would be to get this project started. Factors such as weather, temperature, climate, and appointment availability can all play a part roof replacement. While each season may have its advantages, roof replacement is a job that can be done any time of the year when entrusted to a professional residential roofing contractor.

Winter

Winter in Sacramento can carry unpredictable weather. Can you replace your roof in the winter? For sure! The winter season can be great for many homeowners since it is usually a slower time for many roofing companies. This can allow for more flexible appointment scheduling. However, depending on the forecast you need to be ready when a dry weather window presents itself. Extremely low temperatures can cause roofing materials to become more susceptible to cracking, so keeping an eye on the temperatures is important. Regardless, an experienced roofing contractor like Harlan Quality Roofing, will have processes put in place to prevent or mediate complications.

Spring

Replacing your roof during early spring as everything begins to warm is a good choice for many homeowners. The temperatures are milder, making roof replacement a great spring-cleaning project to check off your list. Roofing damage caused during the wetter; colder months is often discovered during this time of year. Also, early spring is a great time to prep your roof for any extreme temperatures you might see later in the year. However, spring rain may throw a wrench into your roof replacement plans. But, like winter, keeping an eye on the forecast will make a difference. Any quality roofing company should be able to adapt to such spring weather changes and get your roof replaced on time.

Summer

The summer is often the most desirable time for roof replacement and maintenance. The warm temperature and often predictable weather make roofing during the summer months more straightforward. However, in the Sacramento area, late summer can present higher temperatures which can pose problems for less-experienced roofers. Due to the dryer time of year, the summer months can be quite a busy season for roof replacement and repair. The roofing companies are busier during this time of year, and you will have to be more flexible with scheduling your project.

Fall

Fall is the optimum season for roof replacement. With spring’s mild temperatures and early summer’s weather consistency, fall is commonly referred to as the best time of year to replace your roof. Since this season is highly sought after, finding appointment times in the fall can become tougher and again might require some flexibility for getting your job on the calendar. Another reason fall can be a busy time for roofers, is homeowners waiting too long then realizing the rainy season is approaching and want to get their roof replaced or repaired.
