Installing a new roof is a project that many homeowners dread, but it doesn’t have to be something you aren’t looking forward to. Replacing a roof is a substantial investment, and most homeowners do not have much experience with taking on the project. When it is time to install a new roof, a local roof contractor may guide you toward a spring installation for good reason. When it comes to a professional roof replacement, installing in the spring has many benefits.
Why is Spring a Good Time to Replace Your New Roof?
Spring weather is typically the prime condition for exterior home improvement projects. Mild temperatures with low humidity are ideal for roof replacement. The shingles need heat from the sun to set well, but the moisture from humidity can cause issues during replacement. Because summer is the top roofing season, local roof contractors tend to be busy, managing several projects at once.
Spring is when business is just starting to pick back up, so crews tend to be more deliberate, and your contractor will be able to spend more time with you, and the whole project will move more efficiently. Finally, finishing your new roof in the spring means that your HVAC system will have to work much less over the hot summer months, due to the increase in energy efficiency a new roof brings.
Other Benefits of a New Roof
Although most homeowners think of a new roof as a necessary expense to protect their home, there are other benefits. A new roof will increase your property value. In fact, new roofs are one of the best home improvement projects when it comes to ROI (Return on Investment). Realtors say that nearly half of your home’s curb appeal is related to the roof. A worn roof can be a big turn off for buyers, but a new roof is a visible sign of a well-cared for home.
A worn roof may be a health hazard, growing mold and mildew, so replacing the roof may improve allergy symptoms. When a roof is showing its age, it can be stressful to worry about leaks, water damage, or even instability. Installing a new roof, which will be warrantied for many years, can bring peace of mind.
Start the Process with a Local Roof Contractor
A local roof contractor understands the climate of your area, the renovation habits of local homeowners, and the community. Because of this, a local roof contractor can advise you on the timing of installing a new roof. Speaking with a local roof contractor can get your new roof project started on the right foot.
