With warmer weather on the horizon, outdoor home improvement projects are inevitably going to fill our spring and summer to-do lists. After months of harsh weather, problems that were hidden under ice, snow and debris, could begin to make themselves apparent. To make sure that your home is protected, we recommend inspecting your roof at the start of spring to check for any issues or damage. Should you need a roof replacement, spring is, without a doubt, the best season for roof installation.
The Climate is Ideal For Shingle Installation
Not only is it a better climate for the workers to be outside in, it’s also helpful for the shingles themselves. Asphalt shingles need to be applied in moderate temperatures to avoid major issues and damage through the application. When it is too hot or too cold, the installation process isn’t as seamless. It also gives enough time for the sealer to be properly applied and do its job prior to hurricane season and the return of winter.
At The Roofing Doctor, we do work year round, however, working in the winter and even summer can result in delays as a result of extreme weather. When you choose to replace your roof in the spring, the project will likely move at a faster pace since we will not have to pause the project due to storms.
You Get Ahead of The Curve
When you begin preparing for new roof installation early in the spring, it leaves plenty of time for you to do your proper research on the updates, products, and companies that might be a good fit for you and your home. This also gives the company you choose adequate time to get you a prompt and proper proposal and estimate.
While fall is also a great time to install a new roof, your options might be more limited in terms of companies availability to take on new projects, since everyone will be making the sprint to prepare their homes before winter strikes again. If you think you might have an issue with your roof, call in a professional roofing expert to inspect and advise.
