As the home’s first line of defense against harsh elements, your roof will suffer from everyday wear and tear as well as from rain, ice and snow, necessitating the need for repairs and eventual roof replacement projects.
Although contractors will be more than willing to work on your roof anytime of the year, some experts say it’s a good idea to schedule roof work late in spring. Here are some reasons why:
Spring generally has better weather conditions compared to summer (when it’s very hot) and winter (when it’s very cold). You’ll find that contractors are able to work better during this time as they will be able to focus on your roof, not the terrible heat or freezing cold.
What’s more, certain roofing materials need specific temperature ranges to seal properly. Spring allows most materials, such as shingles, to be installed perfectly.
You Avoid the Busy Season
Many homeowners choose to get some roof work done in spring because it’s not as busy as fall season. Most contractors are overwhelmed with work during fall, resulting in work that’s far from perfect. They aren’t as busy during spring, which allows them to focus on one client at a time.
What’s more, it’s easier to find roofers that are available for emergency work during spring.
You Might Have More Cash
Spring is the best time to get your roof inspected and repaired from damages sustained during the winter. It’s also the time when you get your tax refunds, giving you extra funding to spend on your roof.
