We are all often guilty of fixing things only when they reach breaking point — such as getting a re-roof only when the roof starts leaking. But why not be more proactive rather than reactive?
We understand that many of us would rather think about holidays, barbecues in the garden and sunny trips out. But the spring and summer periods (mainly summer) are also the best times to replace your roof.
While spring tends to be a steady period for roofing contractors, summer is a quieter period. By contrast, the winter months tend to be busier, with roofers in higher demand, having to respond to emergency leaks and weather-related roofing issues. In the hectic autumn season, people are usually rushing to repair their roof before the cold weather arrives.
To avoid the winter rush, book your reputable and accredited roofing contractor during the summer when they are more available.
It is easier for a roofing contractor to re-roof your home in the calmer summer weather, especially when deploying liquid-applied products like those used in flat roofing, such as waterproofing membranes. This is because it’s not advisable to use liquid-applied products when temperatures drop below 5 degrees. Tiles can be replaced during the winter, but as stated above, roofing contractors are often in very high demand in the autumn and winter months.
If you book your roof replacement in summer, when your roofing contractor is likely to be freer, they may be able to offer you a more cost-effective quote.
If you’re after a streamlined and seamless service, summer is the best time to book a re-roof. Your roofing contractor won’t be spread too thin as they are likely to be during the autumn and winter months. Plus, they’ll probably be able to focus better. This combined with the better weather conditions means you’re likely to get better results from your re-roof.
Your roof needs to be ready for the harsher winter conditions. Instead of waiting until winter comes, why not avoid the worry and hassle? Prepare your roof in advance.
