Having to replace your roof is never an ideal situation. With that being said, there are some things that, when you need to replace your roof, should be taken into consideration. One of those factors is the time of year at which you decide to replace your roof. In today’s blog post, the team at Bullard Roofing here in Blountsville is going to discuss a few points that can help you determine what the best time to invest in a new roof for your home will be.
PEAK SEASON VS. OFF-SEASON
The first thing that we want to talk about is the difference between replacing your roof during the peak season and during the off-season. The time of the year where the most roofs are replaced is during the fall months, mainly because temperatures are cooler and the weather is a bit easier to predict. If you wait until the fall to get your roof replaced, you may find it difficult to find a roofing company that can tackle the job in a timely manner. With that being the case, it can be beneficial to schedule your roof replacement at a different time of the year.
TIME OF YEAR
Aside from considering the peak season and off-season for roof repairs, it’s also good to take into consideration what else is going to be happening during that time of year. For example, having to dedicate time to being at home during a roof replacement during the holidays or during the summer when you’re traveling lots is not exactly ideal. If there’s a time of the year where you know you’re going to be home and don’t have a bunch of additional projects, trips, or work to worry about, schedule your roof replacement then. Not only will this make the entire process less stressful, but you’ll have enough time to dedicate to the project and ensure it’s done well.
THE EFFICIENCY OF YOUR HOME
Your home’s roof contributes significantly to the overall efficiency of your house. This is definitely something that we think is worth taking into consideration when determining what time of the year to have your roof replaced. During the summer, your HVAC unit is going to be working full-throttle, and the last thing that you want is for all of that energy to escape because of an old roof. The same can be said about the winter months when temperatures are on the lower end of the spectrum and your home is trying to hold onto heat. If you’re entirely sure that you’re going to need a roof replacement, try and get it taken care of before these seasons settle in.
SIZE OF YOUR ROOF
While the overall size of your roof shouldn’t affect too much in terms of the time of year that you schedule your roof replacement, it is something that we suggest thinking about. The size of your roof replacement project is going to be based on the overall size of your roof. Not only will this determine how many people we need working on the project or the cost of the supplies, but it’s also going to determine how long the project takes. With that being said, you’re always going to want to account for the amount of time that your roof replacement will take.
If you have a roof on the larger side, it’s always good to give yourself a buffer in between the seasons that we mentioned before so that you have more than enough time to get it done without having to deal with the change in seasons and the loss of energy.
