When looking to install a new roof, consider installing it during the summer months. Summer is the most popular time to install a new roof for homeowners and businesses. There are a number of benefits to having your roof installed during the summer months. So, why should you install your new roof this summer?
First, consider the weather. Yes, depending on where you live, it can get extremely hot. But, the heat usually comes consistently clearer skies than in other seasons. When installing a roof, you want it done in a timely manner, so avoid seasons with heavy rainfall or snow to make it efficient. More rain means less time that workers can be on top of your roof and a longer wait time for completion. Also, you’re less likely to have shipping delays affect your project as well. Shipping companies can get delayed by inclement weather, so make sure to plan accordingly to have your roofing done in a shorter period of time.
Install the roof as early in the summer as possible if you can. This can actually save you money in the long run. Having a new roof will help save energy costs during the hot summer months. Select a roof with more solar light reflection to keep your home or business cooler in the summer without running up the electricity bill.
Summer heat also makes your roof more secure. Roofers have to use a tar strip to adhere your roofing. The heat will help to activate the tar and it will adhere to the structure properly. This can save you money in the long run too. When the tar can’t adhere properly, the roof has a greater chance of leaking or tearing apart in strong winds. Fall and winter bring some extreme weather conditions that can damage older roofs. A newer roof is less likely to be damaged.
Summer is a busy time for roofers, so make sure to set up a consultation and appointment early to get your roofing needs accomplished. Contact us today at Vera Roofing & Construction to learn more about our services and how we can help with your summer roof replacement.
