Spring: It's a Great Time to Replace Your Roof in Massachusetts

Why Spring is the Ideal Season for Roof Replacement in Massachusetts

Spring: It's a Great Time to Replace Your Roof in Massachusetts 29 Apr

When you think of spring cleaning, you usually think of cleaning the interior of your house. But it can – and should – mean cleaning and assessing the exterior as well. Take a moment to walk around and take a look at the condition of your exteriors, including your roof. Using binoculars, give it a once-over as you stay safely on the ground so you can see if anything is amiss.

Spot something? Call your trusted South Shore roofing contractor for an official inspection. If it’s determined a roof replacement is in order, spring is actually the best time to handle this project. Here is a look at why:

  1. The Weather is Mild: Thanks to the mild weather inherent in spring, this is the ideal time to take on a project of this magnitude. With no snow and bitter cold to deal with like winter, and lower humidity levels than summer, spring offers the best weather conditions possible. In summer, high humidity can result in moisture damage to roofs, and in winter, the cold, ice, and snow can make this job impossible. Spring brings a much-needed warm up, with fewer delays due to weather. While you will get some rain, the sun’s heat can help seal asphalt shingles to the new roof.
  2. There’s More Contractor Availability: Spring, especially early spring, is a slower season for roofers than in the summer and fall. If you’re like many homeowners, you may wait till the last minute to get a roof replacement. However, then you’ll be caught up in the rush to replace your roof in fall before winter comes, for example. Roofers’ schedules are tighter in summer and fall than spring, which means you have a better chance of being first in line with a project than can be done more quickly. If you wait till the dog days of summer or beginning of autumn, there’s a good chance you’ll be waiting in line as the delays pile up.
  3. It’s More Affordable: Because spring is slower, there are more contractors to choose from. And because roofing tends to be a competitive market, it can be hard to shop around for reputable companies or snag the best deal when everyone else is doing the same. In spring, you have a better chance of finding a good roofer at an affordable price. Waiting till the busy season hits means you have to take what’s available at the price they say. Roofing suppliers tend to increase their prices at the start of the busy season, which raises the roofers’ prices as well because they have to pass that extra cost onto the consumer.

In Conclusion

At the end of the day, the best time for a roof replacement is when you need it, when you are able to tackle the project, and when you have the extra money. It stands to reason that a big leak in late fall will require immediate work, even with the best laid plans of waiting till spring. However, if and when you can plan for spring, you should do it.
