Let’s start with the elephant in this room. Nobody wants to have their roof replaced. It is one of the inevitable evils of homeownership. It is a common problem in homeownership, but it can be avoided by regular maintenance. If your roof is older than 15 years or you are having to make frequent repairs, it may be time to replace it.
It is best to replace your roof when you have had the opportunity to plan and prepare. There are many things to consider when replacing your roof. You should allow yourself sufficient time to plan if you work remotely, have noisy pets, or any other considerations. You can also be very deliberate about scheduling, unless your roof is in serious danger.
What are the advantages of certain seasons over others for roof replacement?
It shouldn’t surprise you that winter is not the best time to have your roof replaced. Even if it doesn’t snow or ice in Myrtle Beach can get extremely cold, which can cause roofing materials to become fragile and hard. It is not worth replacing roofs with damaged shingles. Sealants don’t work as well in colder weather. This causes shingles to stick to each other for longer periods.
Winter is the best time to begin planning for your roof and talking to roofing companies. This will give you a good idea of costs to plug into your budget for 2022. Be sure to call Greg Lilly Roofing and Restoration for a roof inspection and an estimate to replace your roof.
It is often spring when homeowners realize how difficult winter was on their roofs. You might see problem areas popping up everywhere as snow and ice melt. Even if snowfall was not a concern during the winter months it is now that spring brings with it intense winds and storms – enev hurricanes.
Good news! The good news? Spring weather is great for outside work, including for materials and laborers. Keep in mind, however, that spring can be a busy season for roofing companies. Dale’s roofing can help you get on track faster if you contact them sooner than you think, even if it takes a few months.
It’s no surprise that summer is a popular time to replace your roof. Clear weather is at its highest. The sun shines constantly and heats up enough to activate the tar strip on your shingles’ back so that they adhere properly to your roof.
However, it is better to start the summer earlier. You’re less likely than you might to encounter summer storms because the temperatures and humidity are less extreme.
In terms of popularity for roof replacement, this time of year is second only after summer. The perfect conditions for roofing contractors are milder temperatures and more stable weather. This allows them to complete work faster than they could in extreme cold or hot seasons.
