5 Reasons Why Fall is the Best Time to Take Care of Your Roof

Snow, ice, rain, and wind – winter weather takes a toll on your roof. A roof in poor condition can cost you in more ways than one. That’s one reason why fall is a great time to consider repairing or replacing your roof. Act now and take care of your home before it’s too late. Here are the top 5 reasons why fall is the best time to maintain your roof: 

  1. Summer storms and winter snow can delay roofing projects. Stormy weather causes delays and cancellations. With fewer storms to interfere with inspections and construction, fall is a great time to repair or replace your roof. During fall, there is also a lower risk of a hailstorm damaging your brand-new or freshly repaired roof. This also helps you avoid the risk of needing to file multiple insurance claims back-to-back if multiple severe storms occur.
  2. Fall brings ideal roofing temperatures. Not too hot and not too cold. Fall brings ideal temperatures for a lot of things, especially roofing.
  3. Protect your home from winter weather. With harsh winter weather conditions lurking right around the corner, fall is the perfect time to think about your roof. Ice and snow can cause leaks and make existing problems worse, leading to costly repairs later. Take care of your roof now and complete any repairs before it’s too late!
  4. Save on heating costs. A damaged or leaky roof can allow heat to escape during winter, causing your energy bills to rise. New and properly maintained roofs are more energy efficient because they provide better insulation. 
  5. Cold weather can make certain materials difficult to work with. Some roofing materials, like asphalt shingles, can become brittle in cold temperatures. When temperatures reach 40°F and above, asphalt shingles are still pliable, they adhere better, and they will form a good seal. Roofing in fall allows new shingles to form a solid bond before winter sets in. This will protect your home from potential leaks and cold drafts. 

With winter right around the corner, homeowners should act now and take care of their roofs during fall. Fall is a great time of the year for roof repairs and replacements because there are fewer storms and more ideal temperatures. By taking care of your roof, you protect your entire home.
