In some cases, like after severe storm damage, you have to replace your roof as quickly as possible. However, in most cases, you are able to plan your roof installation. This allows you the freedom to choose when you want the installation to occur and choose the best time of year to replace your roof. Aside from choosing the right roofing professionals and getting the weather to cooperate, the season that you choose to have your roof installed during can impact the final installation.
What Is the Best Time of Year to Replace Your Roof?
In general, the best season to replace your roof is the fall. Benchmark Roofers goes above and beyond to ensure a perfect installation regardless of the season, but fall typically has less rain, no snow and lower heat and humidity. The temperatures will not be so hot that the materials could be impacted and the mild weather reduces the chance of any delays. Because Maryland is so humid, the break from the humidity in September and October as the weather changes is the perfect time for installing roofing.
It’s important to note that choosing the best time of year to replace your roof might mean that you are up against plenty of competition. It’s a good idea to schedule your roof installation as early as possible to ensure that you get preferential placement on the schedule. If you want an installation in October, June isn’t too early to call ahead and schedule it!
What Other Times of Year Are Appropriate?
Spring is another good option for roof replacement, and some homeowners think this is the best time of year to replace your roof because there is typically a more open schedule. Spring also has lower humidity levels, which is fantastic. It also does not have the high temperatures of summer. The roofing materials can be up to 20 degrees hotter than the temperature on the ground, and asphalt shingles can soften when it’s hot and humid and lead to damage. However, spring in Maryland often means plenty of rain, so scheduling might require some flexibility in the event of rain delays.
Don’t Wait for an Emergency
It’s important to note that when you consider the best time of year to replace your roof, the most important thing is the health and safety of your family. If there are known issues with your roof, it’s better to sacrifice some convenience or the chance of rain instead of waiting for an emergency. Our roofing professionals can inspect your roof and give you an idea of the condition of your current roofing. This gives you the information that you need to make an informed decision about when to schedule your new roof installation. If you wait until an emergency happens to have your roof replacement, you might need to perform water remediation and additional services instead of just investing in your new roof. We are always here to help.
