Today’s situation may or may not allow roof replacement this spring, but it’s not too early to start planning for one next year. Expert Contracting shares the reasons why roof replacement works best during the spring season.
Summer is peak season for most building and remodeling contractors, especially if businesses begin picking up the slack coming summer season. Many homeowners choose summer to have their roofs replaced because it’s less likely to rain, and materials are less likely to get delayed.
Spring is far less busy, which means even if material delivery suffers a slight delay, it won’t impact the installation timeline. Also, planning your roof replacement early on can give you enough time to choose among styles and colors, perhaps even remotely consult with consultants from roofing companies.
In addition to supply lines, there are other outside factors that can cause installation delays that can result in a less efficient installation process. Paperwork such as permits often get delayed during summer because many other homeowners are applying for the same at this season. Permit applications are not just limited to roofing, which means your permit application will be queued along with those for window replacement and other projects.
With fewer homeowners having their renovations done during spring, permit applications have far less chances of getting delayed. This makes preparations more efficient: you and your contractor can use the time to arrange temporary accommodations, to clear the yard, and to protect your home against dust and debris.
Installation Errors Can Be Addressed Sooner
During peak season, contractors would have shorter gaps between installation appointments. This means in case of installation errors, it may take some time before your contractor can circle back and address such issues. Responsible roofing companies like us will, of course, make sure that we get it right the first time around through our trained installers, along with strict quality inspections.
