Benefits of Replacing Your Roof in the Spring/SummerMay 28, 2018
With the icy winds and subzero temperatures we’ve had this year, it’s amazing to think how a bit of sun can quickly overwrite the memories of a particularly brutal winter. However, with summer just around the corner we’re already looking ahead to all of the fair-weather projects that need doing, one of which is ensuring that our roofs are in good shape after the winter. Here at Protech Roofing, we think that getting your roof repaired in the spring/summer period just makes sense, and in this article we’ll tell you why.
The occurrence of general wear and tear is something we simply can’t avoid about our roofs, so it’s important to know when best to make repairs. Winter can be particularly unkind to roofs, what with the freezing temperatures, strong winds and heaps of snow, so what better time for some roof maintenance? The spring/summer period offers you a chance to take a look at some of these problems in a more temperate climate before winter rolls back around.
As well as adding value to your home, replacing your roof can also increase your home’s energy efficiency rating. Even the smallest crack or leak can see that rating plummet if you’re not careful – adding a great deal on to your monthly expenses – which demonstrates just what a new roof might do for your home. What’s more, if you schedule in this work for the spring/summer period before winter kicks in, your new, sturdy roof will be saving you even more money.
Low moisture levels
With snow piling up, dampening materials and freezing and refreezing happening throughout winter, it’s no wonder that roof problems are exacerbated due to moisture. In the summer, however, precipitation tends to be at its lowest, which is ideal when it comes to roof replacements and repairs. Although roofing contractors undergo specialist training to protect a vulnerable house whilst work is in progress, it’s still important for them to work in moisture levels low during a project.
Another very good reason to have your roof repairs done in the summer is that there is a much better chance that the project will go off without a hitch. The winter months can bring rain, snow and wind which can interrupt roofing contractors, and ultimately slow your project down considerably.
When temperatures approach freezing, roofing materials become brittle and difficult to lay. In the summer, however, this doesn’t apply, meaning that the speed and overall quality of the installation will improve.
