For most of us, the roofing season usually falls between late summer and fall. This, however, is not necessarily true in other areas of the country. The time to start a roofing project depends on the climate where you live. The roofing season in Illinois will be different than the roofing season in California.
Roofing season in the southern United States starts from either fall or spring and ends during the peak of summer. Temperatures are milder during this time, and there’s little to no snowfall. Beyond that period, roofers can’t stay outside for long periods under extreme heat. They may, however, make adjustments to their schedules and practices to work around the sun.
In the American Northeast and Midwest, most homeowners choose to schedule their roof repair and replacement projects from spring to near the beginning of winter. Temperatures below 50 degrees aren’t ideal for installing new asphalt shingles. The absence of heat prevents the sealant from being activated.
Windy and Rainy Climates
Roofing projects shouldn’t be scheduled just before a hurricane is expected. Both the east and west coasts experience hurricane seasons – June to November and May to November, respectively. Fortunately, hurricanes are usually predicted well in advance, which is why it is not necessary to avoid roofing altogether during any of these periods.
To conclude, the best time to install a roof is one when the weather is fine – no extreme temperatures, high winds or precipitation. For this project, turn to the roofing experts at Perkins All-Star Exteriors and Construction. We specialize in residential and commercial roofing services.
