Your roofing system will eventually require replacement, and one challenge with this kind of major home improvement project is figuring out when is the best time to do it. Fall is arguably the best time of the year to undertake any roofing projects because the weather is generally quite mild. Read on as Winfield Builders discusses more.
Fall Is the Interim Season
Once fall arrives, your home will have experienced everything from relentless spring showers to the searing heat of summer. Fall is comparatively mild, with temperatures typically above 45 to 50 degrees, making for ideal conditions to install asphalt shingles. The weather during fall is also relatively tame, hence why it’s an interim season between the harsh heat of summer and the chilling cold of winter.
We suggest you do your preliminary roof inspections near the end of summer when the temperatures are starting to cool. As your trusted local roofing company, you can count on us to offer in-depth roof inspections. We’ll identify the things you need to address once fall is in full swing.
Shingles and Sealing
Your roof’s shingles need to be properly sealed before winter arrives. This is necessary because proper sealing ensures that the shingles are airtight and moisture-resistant, which means they will be more resilient to the cold winds when winter arrives.
Winter Replacements Are Hit or Miss
Don’t push your project off until winter. First of all, you want to make sure your roof is in good working order before temperatures plummet. Secondly, winter brings harsh weather that could cause delays in a roof replacement project.
