Seasoned homeowners will tell you that the best time to schedule roofing work is during the summer. They’re right, of course — this is why it is the busiest season for builders and contractors. However, you can schedule roofing work during most other times of the year. In today’s post, the local roofing contractors at Jack The Roofer discuss the reasons why roofing work in the late spring is a great idea.
More Roofing Contractors Are Available
During late spring, roofing contractors are not as busy, which means you can pick your roofer of choice at the most convenient dates; you won’t have to wait weeks or even months to start your project. Suppliers are likewise less busy and can fulfill material orders faster than they would during busy seasons. It also allows more flexibility with the project timeline in case unexpected delays occur.
There is a window of about a few weeks during late spring where the temperatures and humidity levels are just right. This can benefit roofing work in two ways:
- Certain roofing materials, like asphalt shingles, require a specific temperature range for optimal adhesion. During climatic extremes, the adhesives that help seal the roof may need more time to cure, or may not cure properly at all.
- Comfortable outdoor temperatures mean more efficient roofers. During hot seasons, installers require more frequent breaks to avoid exhaustion and reduce the risks of heat stroke.
You’ll Be All Set for the Summer Season
One of the best things about the summer season is the house gatherings — a backyard barbecue on the Fourth of July, a pool party or just hanging out on your outdoor deck. You can’t host any such gatherings if your roof is being fixed or installed. Also, roof installation typically involves adding insulation to the roof, which means it can help make your home more comfortable by helping reduce heating and cooling requirements. Scheduling roofing work during the late spring will make sure you’re all set for the rest of the year.
