If you are a homeowner and your home is starting to get some age, you may soon find that you will need to consider replacing the roof.  Of course, the material your roof is constructed from and the last time you thoroughly maintained it would play into the need for replacement.  However, you should also consider the time of year and the best season to get the replacement done.

Several factors should be considered when deciding on the time for replacement, including temperature, weather, climate, and the contractor's schedule for availability. Although you can perform a roof replacement at just about any time ofthe year, each season has its own pros and cons.  

In the overall scheme of things, the factors that will play into the replacement most will be your availability, the availability of the contractor's schedule, and the always unpredictability of mother nature and the weather.  Keep in mind that if your roofneeds replacement, it is best that you not let the season dictate getting the task taken care of.


As with most everything else in this season, winter can be a tricky choice for timing a roof replacement. On the other hand, winter proves to be a slow time of year for business for roofing companies, and you will most probably have better luck getting on the company's work schedule.  However, if you are in an area that is prone to extreme weather, the possibility of freezing temperatures and even snow could slow down and even stall the roof replacements.  There is also the fact that if any types of sealants are required, the colder weather could also pose an issue for these.  Winter is the optimal choice for replacing your roof if you live in a more temperate climate.


Springtime is one of the more popular seasons of choice for many considering roof replacement.  You will not be at the mercy of temperatures being from one extreme to the other, such as in the summer and winter months, making this season a widely preferred choice.  During this time of year, any damage that may have been caused during the winter months is usually discovered.  Spring weather also gives you a perfect chance to look into prepping your roof for the winter months that are ahead. Keep in mind that if you are considering the choice to replace your roof in the spring, keep from waiting too long.  Otherwise, you will be dealing with the headache of the seasonal spring rains.


If you were to ask most homeowners the best season to plan on a roof replacement, they would most often reply the summer season.  This season is a good option with warmer days and a less likely chance of extensive rainfall. With that said, there are better choices than summer for some homeowners.  If you reside in a typically warmer climate, the later months of summer may produce much higher temperatures and, in some cases, more severe weather—such as tornadoes and hurricanes.  Because extreme weather usually occurs in the summer months, it can be a busy season for roof replacements, and you may find it hard to secure a contractor.  On the other hand, any roofing company worth considering will have made provisions forthis busiest time of year.


Of the four seasons, fall is undeniably the best time to consider a roof replacement.  Although spring will offer milder temperatures and summer will offer more consistent temperatures, many still consider fall the ideal time to have your roof replaced.  Because it is the most favored time of year, finding a contractor or roofing company with available slots ontheir appointment schedules can often prove daunting.  For this reason, it is best to plan so that you may beat the rush for the season.

Even considering the pros and the cons of each season, what matters most when considering a roof replacement is the contractor or roof company you choose to use. Make sure to shop for not only the best price but also for a contractor or company with a known track record for quality and dependable work.
