Roof replacements can be expensive and exhausting (if you don’t hire the right roofer). However, they can also be liberating and one of the best home improvement investments. If your roof is over 20 years old or has suffered extensive damage, frequent repairs can be more expensive than a roof replacement. And there’s no better time to have your roof replaced than the spring. Rain, thunderstorms and other inclement weather conditions are common during the spring, which can cause leakage and additional damage to your roof.
Therefore, you should have your roof replaced before the rainy, storm season settles in. But if you’re not convinced, below are three benefits of having your roof replaced during the spring.
Ideal Weather Conditions The mild temperatures of spring are ideal conditions for most roofing materials. Shakes, tiles and shingles perform particularly well during the season. The mild weather helps protect the materials from cracking, chipping and other damage.
Most roofers also prefer the mild weather of spring over the sweltering heat of the summer. Plus, heat can damage your roofing material and/or slow down the installation process. The spring is also an optimal time for a roof replacement because it gives your new roof time to settle before being exposed harsh summer weather. It’s also an excellent time to have your roof repaired in Alberta. If you’re unsure about your repair or replacement, consult with an expert like Great Canadian. They’ll offer advice, facts about roofing in the spring and some of the best roof repair Edmonton has to offer.
Faster Service and Completion If your roof is severely damaged and needs an immediate replacement, the spring is the best time to call a roofing contractor.
There’s less demand for roof repair and replacement during the spring, meaning less work for roofers. A roofer can dedicate more time to your roof and fix or replace it in a timely manner. This is also the best time to find a great deal on a roof replacement. When it comes to roofing in Calgary and Edmonton home and business owners trust Great Canadian to provide quality workmanship at a competitive price.
Less Stress for Contractors Obviously, the summer is a busy season for roofing contractors. Extreme “busyness” can lead to slow service and stress and frustration for many roofers.
This can spell disaster for you and your roofing project. The contractor could delay your project for weeks, provide low on-the-job performance, work with a smaller workforce and much more. Fortunately, you won’t have to worry about delays and contractor stress during the spring, as less demand means less stress and more time per project.
