If you are thinking about a roof replacement, then you have probably thought about what time of year would be best to get such a big job done. While weather is certainly one of the most important factors you should consider, other factors such as the availability of roofers should also be on your mind as this tends to change as the seasons change. Whatever your reasons for replacing your roof, whether it is to increase your home’s resale value or to fix damage, hopefully you have an idea of the pros and cons of replacing your roof in each season. 

Optimal Conditions For Roof Replacement

Getting your roof replaced is a significant project. While no season is necessarily bad for roofing, there are certainly conditions that make the process easier. With the average cost of a roof replacement at $8,000, you’ll want to do everything you can to ensure a successful end result. It is best to have low humidity and mild temperatures so the roofers can finish the job as quickly as possible while allowing the asphalt on the roof to set properly so your home stays protected from harsh weather. The season in which these conditions are most often met is of course, Fall.


Fall is considered to be the best season to get a roof replaced because it is not as hot as some of the earlier months and the dryer weather makes it perfect for shingles to set properly in time for the winter months. Because fall offers such perfect conditions for roof replacement, roofers generally describe this as the busiest time of the year. So, although the conditions may be perfect, you might not be able to get on the schedule if you wait too long. It’s these perfect conditions that make Fall the universal go-to season for roof replacement. 


What if you can’t get an appointment for the Fall? If you are unable to secure a chance to replace your roof in fall, then Spring will likely be your next best option. With Spring, the weather is still not as blistering as the Summer which makes it easier for your roofers to work. One of the downsides, however, is that the season brings more rain. This can cause delays for your roof replacement up to a couple of days.


If both Fall and Spring are unavailable, Summer should be where you aim to have your roof replaced. The weather is hot, which can make it harder on your roofers, but the high heat allows your shingles to set properly. This season is dry which helps shingles as well.


The least popular time to have a roof replaced is Winter. The cold and wet working conditions pose some challenges to roofers and the shingles. While the conditions are not always the best in the winter, this typically means that this is when roofers are the least busy. This can be a blessing for you if you are in a time crunch and need a new roof as quickly as possible.
