When is the best time to replace your roof?

If you’ve noticed signs of aging on your roof, such as shingles lifting, bare patches or cracked shingles, it’s time to think about replacement. Be aware that if you neglect your roof, insurance companies may deny a claim in case of damage.

 

So it’s important not to put off replacement for too long as this could jeopardize the structure of your home. As well as giving added protection to the house, a new roof will increase its value.

 

What are the best seasons for a roof replacement?

Certain times of the year are better than others for replacing your roof. In winter, snow and cold weather can hinder the work of roofers, making it difficult to properly install the shingles, which need to be nailed and glued to ensure their stability.

 

In summer, hot weather can complicate the work of roofers. Rain and wind may also delay their work.

 

The ideal seasons for roof replacement are therefore spring and fall, when it’s not too hot or too cold.

 

Some factors to consider before replacing your roof

Before starting the work, you should look into your options regarding materials. Asphalt shingles are the usual choice, but they do need to be replaced on a regular basis. We propose instead that our customers opt for metal roofing since its lifespan is much longer. Additionally, the durability of this type of roof makes it a more economical choice.

 

Steel tile roofing is also a potential option. Like metal roofing, it’s very resistant and has a long lifespan. The lightweight and versatile materials used in this type of roofing will add to the value of your home.

 

The cost of replacing a roof varies based on the materials used and the pitch of the roof. For more information or to get a quote, please contact our team. We’ll be more than happy to advise you on the best solution and to answer your questions.
