If you want a smooth and hassle-free roof replacement, then you need to schedule this project properly. Fall is the perfect time for a roof installation. It’s the ideal season for replacing your roof because of the excellent weather. In today’s article, UHQ Construction, the top choice for exterior services in our local area, discusses the reasons to schedule your roof replacement this season.
Your Home Will Be Prepared for Winter
By the time autumn comes around, your roof has already dealt with summer heat and spring showers. Fall is a great time to inspect and replace your roof to deal with the damage caused by spring and summer. A brand new roof can easily handle colder temperatures and harsh winter weather. If you get a new roof now, then you don’t need to worry about damage to your home once the snow arrives.
It Is Much Harder to Replace a Roof in Winter
While it’s technically true that many roofing materials can be installed when the weather’s cold, we don’t recommend it. Installing a roof during winter weather requires more work and special adhesive materials. The cold weather also makes it more difficult for roofers to work on your roof. As a roofing and siding expert, we recommend replacing your roof during fall and not waiting for winter to arrive.
Asphalt Shingles Become Hard to Work With During Winter
Asphalt shingles become much more brittle and more difficult to work with during winter. Many roofing manufacturers recommend that their shingles get installed at temperatures of 26 degrees or higher. This is because shingle damage becomes likely if the shingles are cold and brittle during a roof installation. The shingles will have to be hand nailed, which will make your roof replacement slower and pricier.
