If you’ve been thinking of getting a new roof installed, but have been putting it off for the perfect time, wait no longer. Fall is the best time of the year for a new roof.
4 Reasons to Have a New Roof Installed During the Fall
1. Ideal weather for shingles to seal
For roof installation, temperatures above 45 degrees Fahrenheit are considered ideal for the shingles to seal and settle properly.
The adhesive materials on shingles need sunlight, warmth, and dry air to activate and bond together. These conditions also help the shingles settle and lay flat. Cold weather can slow these processes down, risking exposure or damage from the elements.
2. You’ll save money on your winter heating bills
Any leaks or cracks in your roof can allow the cold and moisture to enter your attic, resulting in higher heating bills, not to mention entrance points for unwanted critters seeking warmth from frigid temperatures.
Replacing or repairing your roof before winter arrives will seal any weak points or damage, preventing exposure to the cold. A strong and healthy roof keeps heat in during the winter months, making your home more energy-efficient.
3. You’ll save money on installation costs
Winter weather can make shingles brittle and more susceptible to breakage from nail guns used during installation. Contractors at times have to resort to hammering by hand, which takes longer and requires more effort, resulting in higher charges for the project.
4. Fewer delays caused by the weather
Variations in weather (such as the scalding summer heat or the unpredictable spring rain) can increase delays and needed breaks for the roof installers. The longer the roofers can work through the day without having to take unexpected or prolonged breaks, the sooner your roof installation can be completed.
