The summer months offer a perfect opportunity to install a new roof. The warm temperatures allow for even work on the shingles. In addition, the dry conditions allow for less risk of leaks and other problems. Lastly, the increased sunlight in these months also means that you can get more work done in the day. If you’re ready to get a new roof this summer, check out these three reasons why you should do so now!
You Can Get More Work Done in the Day
The summer months mean that you can be outside more often. This means that your roofers will be able to get more work done in the day, not just because of the warmer temperatures but also because of the increased sunlight.
Being able to get the work done more quickly means they can take on more jobs. This means that you might get a better price because they are able to take on more work. If you’re looking to get a new roof this summer, you may want to bear this in mind!
It’s a Dry Summer
The summer months are often drier, which allows your roof to be installed more quickly. There usually isn’t a lot of time wasted waiting on materials to dry or for the weather to be sunny and dry enough to get up on the roof and work.
This can also mean less leaks. During the spring, winter, or fall, changing temperatures and rain or snow can cause the roof to expand and/or contract which can lead to leaks. By installing a new roof in the summer, you ensure even temperatures for an extended period. This lets the roof “settle” before the colder months and reduces the chances of leaks forming.
Roofing Costs are Cheaper
When you install a new roof in the summer, you can take advantage of the sun to activate the tar sealant that adheres the shingles to the roof. This sealant prevents leaks and keeps shingles from flying off later. This means lower labor and materials costs.
If you chose to have your roof installed in the winter instead, the roof might need to supplement with hand-sealing techniques, which means higher labor costs and more materials to pay for.
There are three key reasons why you should install a new roof this summer. The first is that the timing is right, as the summer months are warm and dry. The second is that you can get more work done in the day and the third is that the costs are cheaper. If you’re ready to get a new roof, these are three reasons why you should do so now! There’s no better time to get a new roof!
