Roofing jobs can be done at any time of the year, depending on your location and its climate.In this post, the roof repair and replacement specialist, B&M Roofing, shares when the roofing season starts and ends in different climates across the US.
If you’re situated in a hot area, mainly in the south, the roofing will start from the fall or spring season and will end during the peak of summer. You don’t have to worry about snowfall during this season, but, your roofers can’t be exposed to the sun for too long due to the extreme heat. Thankfully, they can adjust their schedules and make necessary adjustments to work around the sun.
If you’re having a roof replacement or repair in the northeast, or the Midwest, homeowners usually schedule their projects during spring or early winter. Keep in mind that working when the weather is under 50 degrees fahrenheit isn’t ideal when installing new asphalt shingles. This is because heat is required to make the sealant harden.
Windy or Rainy Climates
You shouldn’t schedule a roofing project when hurricane season is approaching. This is true for both the East and West Coast since they experience hurricanes from June to November, and May to November, respectively. Thankfully, most hurricane predictions are accurate, so it’s easy to reschedule roofing projects when necessary.
In conclusion, the best time to replace your roof is when the weather is calm, without searing heat, blistering cold, high winds, or torrential rain. Of course, your project should always be handled by a professional roofer in your area.
