If you are considering replacing your roof, you may be wondering when the best time of year is to have a roof replacement done. There are a few weather factors that affect roofing. Here is what you should keep in mind when scheduling a roof replacement.
The absolute worst time to replace a roof is in the cold, wet months of winter. The fact is that most Oklahoma City roofers won’t even consider doing a tear off and installing a new roof when the temperatures are too low and there’s the ever-present threat of snow. If you run into problems with your roof during this time, call experienced roofers to have the roof repaired temporarily. We can take steps to protect your roof and your home until the weather breaks and the roof can be repaired properly or replaced.
The ideal time to replace a roof as far as weather is concerned is in the late summer and fall. The weather is more stable, there are fewer rain storms, and the temperatures won’t cause any problems with the ice guard adhering or the shingles making connecting well. But one thing to keep in mind is that this is also the busiest time for roofers. It’s not uncommon to call for roof repairs during these peak months only to find that companies are booked weeks in advance and can’t come out even to do repair work.
The late spring and early summer are ideal times to have a new roof installed on your home. The weather has to be watched carefully, and any roofer you hire has to be prepared to quickly cover the work area in case of a storm. However, you can usually get scheduled relatively quickly and this time is before the annual price increases come down from the manufacturers.
