What Time of Year Is Best for a New Roof Installation?

It is always a good idea to plan ahead, and roofing jobs are no exception. If your roof is aging and you know that the need for a replacement is fast approaching, you may want to start looking for a reliable area contractor and thinking about when you want to schedule the work to be done.

Angie’s List recently published an article by Jon Montes entitled When is the Best Time to Install a Roof? that you may find helpful when planning your new roof installation. This article provides a lot of useful information that can help you deciding on good timing, such as:

    • The busiest time of year for most roofing companies is late summer and fall because the rainy season is over and they days are less hot than in early and mid-summer.
    • Keeping your roof dry is a big concern for roofers so if it is raining a lot, they will not be able to work and the job may take a long time.
    • Roofing supplies tend to cost more between April 1 and late fall, so this may result in higher roofing costs for you.
    • If the winter weather is amenable, it is a good time to have the work done as most roofing companies will not be especially busy.
    • Manufacturers’ warranties do not change based on installation temperatures, but thermal sealing requires temperatures of 40 degrees Fahrenheit or greater.
