Roofing contractors work year around to install or repair roofs. Since the roof isn’t really a seasonal project, homeowners face roof repairs or replacements most of the time without warning. However it is always better to plan a roof replacement far in advance to properly finance and plan for the project. However, when homeowners plan ahead they often ask if there is a better season to repair roofs. Nickerson Roofing will answer this question to give homeowners a handle on when to plan to have the roof replaced or repaired.
Roofing Season VS Off-Season
Roofs can be worked on all year long. However, there is a “peak season.” Many roofing contractors typically prefer working at the end of summer through the fall. During the peak of roofing season sometimes homeowners have to wait a month before their roof can be worked on. If the replacement or repairs are dire, waiting a month is sometimes too long of a wait. One of the worst times to schedule a roof repair or replacement is during the rainy season of March and April. When a roof is being replaced, your home will be exposed to all the rain which can lead to internal damage of the home and roof. This is why roofing companies off season is early spring. Each state will vary due to the climate and weather conditions. It is important to consider the weather before you plan a roofing project, especially a full roof removal and replacements. Where late summer and fall is the peak of roofing season, there is is still one down side. The suppliers of most roofing companies are aware of this busier season and sometimes increase their prices. This means you will be paying more. Due to the inflation of roofing material costs, some homeowners will wait until winter to tend to their roof.
Is it OK to Reroof in Winter
There are two major advantages of planning to have your roof worked on during the winter. You will have your choice of roofing contractors and cheaper roofing materials. Greater Truckee, CA’s winter snow usually arrives in Early November and sometimes even late October which means you have a short window before the snow hits hard to get your roof repaired or replaced. You may be able to get the roof finished before heavy snow hits, but you don’t want to wait until the snow is too thick to begin your roofing project. If your roof is having structural problems you definitely want to get the roof done before winter.
Summer Roofing Work
Another option is early summer and just after the rainy season has ended. You might be able to schedule a contractor before the heavy roofing season and hopefully before materials go up in price. In most cases when you plan to schedule a roofing contractor, expect two to three weeks before they can come and begin repairing your roof which is why you will want to get an early start. You may want to contact a roofing contractor around late spring to hopefully get in before the rush.
