While roofing systems can be replaced during most seasons, summer is the perfect time to do so. The following are the reasons you should have your roof replacement scheduled in the summer.
Roofs are ideally installed under dry conditions to minimize the chances of moisture getting trapped in areas where it can potentially cause damage, such as between the underlayment and roof deck, or between the shingle layers. The clear weather also helps ensure proper installation of components that could be affected by moisture, including attic insulation and starter strip insulation.
The clear weather also minimizes the chances of your roof replacement getting delayed. Materials get delivered on time, installations are completed on schedule and roofers can stay on top of their scheduled installations with zero backlogs. As a GAF Master Elite® contractor, Century Roofing and Siding has the added advantage of sourcing the materials straight from the factory, which further minimizes the chances of a delayed installation.
Early Preparation for Harsh Weather
The sooner your new roof is completed, the sooner you’re prepared for storms and other harsh weather conditions. The time between summer and winter is just enough for the new roof to settle. By the time winter comes around, your new roof will be ready to keep your home warm and comfortable.
Least Amount of Disruption
Any kind of roofing work tends to be noisy, dusty and basically a lot of people going back and forth through your home; given the nature of the work, that can’t be avoided. During this time, temporarily relocating the family would be the best option, especially if you work at home, or have young children or pets that may get upset because of the noise.
Temporary accommodations won’t be as difficult in the summer. School-age kids would be on summer break, so you can send them to camp or to a relative’s place. By the time they get back, they’ll enjoy the renewed comfort of home thanks to your new roof.
