When you consider that roofing contractors work virtually every month of the year, it may seem that anytime is the best time to replace a commercial roof. However, there are times of the year that are better suited for roof replacement than others. Especially in towns that have crazy weather like Kansas City Missouri. Lionheart Contracting has laid out a detailed corse of action to help you through the process.
Plan Ahead Of course, if the roof has been heavily damaged it will need to be replaced as soon as possible no matter the time of year. However, if the roof is still sound, then you can choose a better time when it can be replaced. The best time starts when you plan ahead to have your roof replaced. All roofs have an expected lifetime and with proper maintenance and repairs, it should last that long.
So, when it is getting close to the time of replacement or when a roofing contractor confirms that your commercial roof needs replacement because of premature aging, then you will need to set a time that works best for you.
You will generally see most roofing contractors replacing roofs from the late summer to the early fall. This is not so much because of the temperature, but because the rainy season is over and the long, hot days of summer have arrived. Because it rains less during this time of year and the temperatures are generally more tolerable for the workers in summer as compared to winter, this is considered the on-season for roof replacement.
It will be very important for you to schedule your roof replacement well in advance during this time of the year. You may notice that a roofing contractor will charge more during this time than in the off-season. However, this is usually because the roofing suppliers will increase their price for materials to keep them from running short.
Fall, Winter, and Spring
Scheduling your roof replacement during this time of the year will be easier and cost less because it falls in the off-season. However, there are the obvious complications of the weather which are more active during this time of the year and may cause delays to occur. In addition, for some types of roofing material need the temperature to be above 40 degrees in order to be installed correctly. This may rule out the harsh winter months from having your roof replaced. However, you might consider the late fall or spring months as a time when the temperature is more suitable to having your roof replaced.
