There is not a one-size-fits-all answer when you are trying to determine the best time of year to replace your roof, but here are some things to consider to help you figure out when to schedule your roof replacement.
Things to Consider In Determining When You Replace Your Roof
Condition of Your Roof
In an ideal world, you would be able to plan ahead for your when you are going to replace your roof. You would be maintaining your roof well, saving money for the replacement, and everything would go as predicted. But life doesn’t always go as planned. Sometimes you don’t get the novelty of planning your roof replacement months ahead of time because there was a terrible hailstorm, your roof is actively leaking, and you need a replacement now. Try your best not to wait until you are in an emergent situation to schedule your roof replacement.
If your roof is in very poor condition, the answer to your timing question is to get it replaced as soon as possible! If you know you need to get a replacement soon, but it is not an emergency situation, keep reading to take these other factors into consideration.
Wait Times in Busy Seasons
Fall tends to be the busiest season for roofers because people are trying to get their repairs and replacements completed before winter hits. Spring is also busy because often winter left roofs with some damage that needs to be taken care of. Take this into consideration when you are thinking about when to get your roof replaced because the busy times are going to mean longer wait times. When you can, plan ahead. Sometimes busy seasons also bring higher prices, so beware of that as well. Waiting until May is a good idea to avoid the spring rush and Colorado summers aren’t quite as harsh as many other states, making it a great time to replace your roof.
In Colorado, we can have some very cold days as well as some harsh winter storms. It can be beautiful, warm, and sunny one afternoon and snow that evening with our sometimes unpredictable and quickly changing weather. That can make replacing your roof a bit tricky because snow, ice, and cold temperatures can make roofing materials brittle and hard, causing shingles to crack during the installation. Even when your roofer is doing everything properly, the weather prevents the sealing from being as effective and shingles won’t adhere to each other as quickly as they should. Winter brings all of those complications but beware of those freak snowstorms in the spring in Colorado as well.
Your Preferred Roofer
Don’t sacrifice quality for convenience. There may be a roofer that can start on your replacement immediately, but if they are not a roofer you trust with a long list of quality reviews to back up their claims, it’s just not worth it. Do your research. Plan ahead, get price quotes from different companies, and most importantly, make sure they have a good reputation.
