If you are planning to install a new roof there are certain factors that one needs to consider:
- Materials used.
- Weather and temperature.
- Different roofing contractors in the area.
The first point to consider is temperature and weather in the region you stay. Usually homes in such areas have roofing shingles made of asphalt or fiberglass composite shingles. Such materials in roofing, shingles are mostly used in such areas.
When getting a new roof installed in your home a roofing contractor will be able to work when the minimum temperatures are in the range of 50 degrees. Snow and ice often make it difficult to work with shingle materials and adhesives and the setting process does not happen right. Also winter time the ice and snow make it difficult and dangerous to get any roofing work done. Again, early spring is a time dictated by rains and this is a time when thunderstorms also pick up on shingles. Hence, it is a weather condition that is not congenial for getting a roof done.
Hence, in such areas fall, summer and late spring are the best times to get a roof done or fully replaced. At such times the weather shows more stability and shingles easily set as well as ice guards adhere fast.
In prime time, however, getting a professional roofing contractor might be tricky. Hence it is best that you appoint a roofing contractor well in advance who can then decide on the best time to come in and repair or replace your roof shingles. You can also speak to more than one contractor in order to know the different materials available and what would be ideal as per your roof and budget considerations. Planning it in advance will help you appoint the right person for the job.
