Why Spring is the Best Time to Replace Your Commercial Roof
When your commercial roof shows signs of wear and tear or has severe damage, it’s time to look into a roof replacement. Your building needs a durable roof that’s in good condition to protect it from the elements, such as high winds and rainy weather. While summer or fall might seem like ideal times to replace your roof, spring is actually the perfect time to do so. Springtime scheduling offers certain benefits that you won’t get if you decide to put off having your new roof installed until summer or fall.
Ideal Working Temperatures for Crews and Materials
Replacing a commercial roof during spring means that workers can do their job in mild weather that's neither too cold or too hot. This helps crews get the job done more quickly without having to worry about heat stroke, hypothermia or other health issues that hotter or colder temperatures can cause. Waiting until summer forces crews to work in hotter weather, while waiting until fall means workers might find themselves working in cold temperatures. Spring temperatures are also ideal for roofing materials when you're having a commercial roof replaced. Being able to install a new roof in mild temperatures lowers the risk of having materials affected by extreme hot or cold temperatures, which could damage them.
Contractors are Less Busy
Roofing contractors are typically at their busiest during the summer and fall months. During the spring months, contractors are usually less busy, which means you can count on having your roof replaced promptly. Waiting until summer or fall can result in delays, depending on how busy contractors are. Keep in mind that roofing contractors are also generally the least busy during the winter months, so you should have no problem scheduling a roof replacement when spring arrives.
Commercial Roof Installation or Replacement Can Take Months to Complete
Having a commercial roof installed or replaced isn’t a fast project. In fact, it can take months to fully complete. Scheduling your replacement in spring means that you’re allowing extra time for tasks that go along with installing a new commercial roof, such as on-site evaluations and the design phase. Replacements for commercial roofs generally take longer than residential roof replacement, so it’s best to get started early in spring. This means that your building will have a brand new commercial roof by summer or fall at the latest. Waiting until late summer or fall comes with the risk of facing significant delays that could push your project back to winter.
