This Is Why Fall Is The Season For Roof Replacements

A lot of people out there would argue that fall is the best season. Aside from pumpkin spice lattes, apple orchards, and spooky Halloween decorations, Texans finally get a break from the sweltering summer heat. Paired with the beautiful falling leaves, what’s not to like? Our roofers like autumn too, but for slightly different reasons. Fall signals the end of the stormy summer season and allows First Out Roofing to make any necessary repairs and replacements before it gets cold. No one really wants to spend a lot of time outside when it gets cold out, but the larger concern is that shingles become more brittle when the temperature drops. Since we have to be more careful not to break your shingles, roof repairs take longer to complete. While this is inconvenient, it can also take longer to complete the project which can get costly. But that’s just the start of it. Keep reading to see why fall is the best time of the year for a residential roof replacement in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. 

Comfortable Temperatures and Good Weather

One of the best ways to ensure your roof replacement gets done quickly is to schedule the job during the fall. Temperatures are milder in September, October, and November, so roofers can work at a fast rate without tiring from heat exhaustion. Not to mention, it’s just more comfortable. 

Fall also signals a break from summer storms, meaning we can work until the job is done without worrying about rain, hail, lightning, or any other major weather event. We might deal with the occasional rainfall, but it’s nothing compared to the storms you see in fall, spring, and winter. Since fall comes after the bulk of the stormy season has passed, you can also rest assured that your brand new roof won’t take any damage right after you invest in a roof replacement. 

Shingles Aren’t Brittle Yet

If your home has shingle roofing, it’s important to take care of any repairs or replacements before it gets too cold out. Cold temperatures make shingles more brittle so roofers can’t use nail guns. Instead, they have to hand nail each shingle which can make the project stretch out much longer than you may have initially anticipated. 

Proper Sealing & Save On Heating

Autumn is the perfect time for a roof replacement because it gives the roof time to bond before winter rolls around. While Texas isn’t known for terribly cold winters, we do get the occasional winter storm. It’s important to take care of any problem before that happens to avoid any leaks that could cause serious damage to your interior. 

Beat The Pests

Critters like raccoons, squirrels, and mice are more likely to burrow into gaps in your roof when temperatures start to drop. Fall in Texas is pretty moderate so you have a bit more time to seal up trouble spots on your roof. Unfortunately, if you wait to repair or replace your roof in the winter, you’re also going to have to deal with pest control. This process can be costly and difficult to do right.
