What a beautiful week it’s been and we’ve been enjoying roofing in the fall weather. Right now is the perfect time to get your roof inspected, repaired, or replaced, and we promise it’s not just for our sake. Here are three big reasons why fall is the best time to schedule in your roof care appointments!
Now that the weather is cooler and not as hot or humid, it’s the most ideal climate for installing new roofs. Whether that’s too hot or too cold can affect the integrity of shingles and their ability to properly bond. That doesn’t mean that your roof will be installed badly (we are professionals, after all!) but ideal temperatures will ensure that your roof replacement will go as smoothly and swiftly as possible.
Additionally, less rain means fewer chances of inclement weather postponing your roof care. Roof work can be done in light rain, but heavy rainfall and storms can postpone your appointments. When you schedule your roofing to be done in the fall, there’s less chance of your schedule being pushed around.
The biggest reason to prepare your roof in the fall is to get it ready for winter. Inspections ensure that any small damages are repaired and that there are no leaks for when the rain or snow comes. Even if a small area of damage doesn’t seem like a big deal, we highly recommend getting it repaired as soon as possible. Any cracks or open crevices in your roof can be widened by freezing rain or ice, potentially causing leaks. Additionally, pests may use these areas to take shelter in your attic. If that happens, it will be a much bigger problem that will be both expensive and a headache.
