Here in the great state of Michigan, we have limited time for outdoor activities, as far as warm weather goes. If you live here, you understand where we are coming from. We have to maximize the time in shorts and t-shirts because we know there will be five inches of snow on the ground before we know it.
The same goes for roofing companies: we have limited time to put up new roofs and make repairs, so you need to think ahead if the lifespan of your roof is nearing its end.
Typically, we look at April through October as the ideal time to do work. But as we get closer to the end of summer, the weather tends to be more cooperative, so that window of time is really ideal for work, so you have to consider that.
We’ve talked before about how heat affects your roof. Obviously, you don’t want your shingles to curl or warp. The longer they sit in the hot sun, the greater the chance that will happen. If we’re installing your roof in cooler months, the shingles can luxuriate in the cool, dark air overnight, which makes them able to handle when the sun comes out.
When you decide you want to replace your roof in the fall, don’t hesitate to schedule it.
We are taking on projects right up to the holiday season. Before we can schedule a roof replacement, we recommend to our customers that they get a free estimate where we provide a detailed description of our materials and methods, three tiers of pricing, and easy instructions on how to schedule your project. Our estimator can be in and out of your home in 20 minutes, in most cases. Plus, it usually only takes a minute to request the quote and get the project moving.
Of course, sometimes your roof has a problem pop up in the middle of winter. When that happens, you (obviously) can’t wait until the weather warms up to get it fixed. But if you are tracking the lifespan of your roof, you can try to prepare the fix when the weather is reasonable and all of the factors are in your favor.
