5 Reasons Why Summer is the Best Time for Roof Replacements

We are all often guilty of fixing things only when they reach breaking point – such as replacing a roof only when it is leaking. But why not be more proactive rather than reactive?

While we understand that many of us would rather think about holidays, sunbathing and barbeques in the garden and sunny trips out, the spring and summer periods are actually the best times to replace your roof.

Why is Summer the Best Time to Re-Roof Your Home?

  • Less demand – While spring tends to be a steady period for roofing contractors, summer is a quieter period. This is in contrast with the busier winter months when roofers are often in high demand, having to respond to emergency leaks and weather-related roofing issues and the hectic autumn season when 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.

  • Easier conditions – 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 is 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.
  • More competitive prices – roof replacement, re-roof, Ploughcroft, summer 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.
  • Increased efficiency – If you’re after a streamlined and seamless service summer is the best time to book a re-roof as your roofing contractor won’t be spread too thin as they are likely to be during the autumn and winter months. You roofing contractor is also probably going to be more focused. This combined with the better weather conditions means you’re likely to get better results from your re-roof.
  • Staying ahead – Why not prepare your roof for the harsher winter conditions in advance to avoid worry and hassle in the winter?
