It’s the most wonderful time of the year— and no, we’re not talking about the holidays just yet! Fall is in the air, meaning it’s the optimal time for any home exterior projects. Although the fall may seem like a tricky time to place your busy schedule on hold with the quickly approaching holiday season, the best time of year for a roof replacement is truly right now. Still undecided if now is really the time for you to have your roof replaced? Keep on reading to hear from our roofing specialists all of the benefits of a roof replacement in the fall season.

The Ideal Temperature

Right now, the weather outside is designed for proper roof replacements to take place due to the fairly low humidity and cooler temperatures. We’re not just talking about fall being the best weather for roofers to be out and about on the site, but we’re talking about their ability to install the roofing materials properly. Asphalt shingles, for example, require a moderate temperature (anywhere from the mid-40s to 50 degrees Fahrenheit) in order for the surface of the roof and shingle material to adhere together flawlessly. Talk about one critical benefit of a roof replacement in the fall!

Winter Is Coming

When winter comes knocking at our doors, we all definitely won’t want to do anything outside other than snowball fights and other seasonal activities! Preparing your roof prior to winter prevents a handful of problems that can be best avoided by getting your roof replaced now, such as:

● Shingles being blown off your home from rough winter winds
● Small holes and leaks enlarging and becoming more problematic from winter storms
● Shingles not being sealed tight enough to fend off freezing cold temperatures from entering your home

In recent years, winter has been extremely cold in the Northeast and having a roof that is not ready to tackle the upcoming winter season can be very detrimental. You will thank yourself in the long run for making the decision to have your roof replaced in the fall!

Save Money, Feel Comfy

Did you know replacing your home’s roof in the fall can save you money on your heating bill? Homes that have their HVAC systems installed in the attic can really benefit from having a brand new layer of protection overtop. Not to mention, you and your family will stay warm and comfortable during the wintertime thanks to a well-insulated roof!

Are you now convinced that the fall is the best time of year for a roof replacement?
