Why Fall is the Best Time To Get You Roof Replaced
Fall is a great time for many things, like apple picking, football, hayrides, and making sure your house is ready for the winter! Winter can be difficult on any home, but it can be particularly rough on homes that need roof repairs. Heavy snow, wind, and debris can compromise your roof at the worst time, leaving you scrambling to get it repaired during the coldest months of the year. This fall, take the time to make sure your roof is ready with Feazel.
At Feazel, we like to call this season “Fix it Fall” because there is no better time to tackle those long-overdue roof repairs. The temperatures are more manageable, and there’s less rainfall and extreme weather than the summer months, allowing your roofing contractors to work longer and more comfortably. If you’ve been putting off roof repairs for a while, it’s time to kick things into high gear and prepare your roof for the winter ahead. Learn all about why fall is the best time for roof repairs with the Feazel roofing specialists below!
The Perfect Weather For Roof Repairs
When deciding on exterior home improvements, it’s important to consider the weather. A week of rain can make even the easiest home repair feel like it’s taking forever, prolonging work and costing more money. That’s what makes fall so perfect for roof repair and replacements. Fall is less rainy than spring and summer, so your roofing contractors can work uninterrupted for longer, and is cooler so they aren’t burning up while working. These factors make fall an ideal time to get your roof inspected and repaired. Generally, the milder temperatures mean work won’t get delayed and it’s usually far less busy – resulting in your repairs being done in a timely manner. Additionally, the moderate temperatures are better for the adhesives and sealants used to repair (or even replace!) your roof.
Winter is Coming
Let’s face it, the most important factor that makes Fall the best time to replace or repair your roof is the season that follows it. As the temperatures start to fall, you really need to get going on those roof repairs and fixes so your home can stay safe, dry, and well-protected once the snow starts flying. No one wants to be up on a roof in the dead of winter, fighting leaks or damage! Also, the harsh winter can make any issues your roof may have now even worse – leading to more costly issues. Heavy snow, wind, rain, and debris can all damage your roof, but it’s significantly worse if your roof was already damaged. Make sure your roof is fixed before the heavy winter weather comes.
Save Money by Repairing Your Roof In Fall
It’s often underestimated how much money can be saved by repairing or replacing your roof. An estimated 30 percent of your heating is lost through your roof, and that number only goes up if your roof is in poor condition. By repairing your roof in fall, you can save money on heating in the winter. Additionally, most people get their roofs repaired or replaced in the summer, leading to higher costs and longer wait times. During the fall, you can find the most affordable rates on roof replacement and repair services.
