Why Spring Is the Best Time to Replace Your Commercial Roof
A commercial roof does not last forever. The exact lifespan of the roof varies based on many factors, including what materials your roof is made from, what weather elements the roof is subjected to and whether you maintain the roof or not. When you need a new commercial roof, you may wonder if there is a time of year that is better to have the roof installed during. Spring is a great time of year to have a new commercial roof installed. Here are three of the reasons why.
Ideal Working Temperatures
One of the benefits of having a commercial roof installed during the spring months is that spring has ideal temperatures for both workers and roofing materials. During spring, temperatures are mild. They are not too hot, and they are not too cold. This makes it the perfect time for a roofer to get up on your roof and work to install a new roof.
Additionally, since the weather is mild, it is better for roofing materials. Roofing materials tend to expand and contract in hot and cold environments. Being able to install them when it is not overly hot or cold allows a roofer to lay them when they are not expanded or contracted, allowing for perfect spacing and placement.
Contractors Are More Available in Spring
Another benefit associated with replacing your commercial roof in spring is that more contractors tend to be available in the spring. During the summer and fall months, people make a push to have their commercial roofs replaced before winter hits. And during the winter months, contractors are busy making repairs, such as repairing leaks or ice dam damage that emerges. In the spring, people tend not to think about their roofs, which means roofers are not as busy. This is a great opportunity for you to hop in and get your roof replaced.
Allows You to Complete the Process Before Winter
The final reason to consider having your commercial roof replaced in the spring is that it allows you to complete the process before winter hits. Replacing a commercial roof is not always a fast process. In some cases, it can take weeks or months to get in the material you want and have them installed. Starting the process early ensures that your roof will be completed by the time winter rolls around again.
The best way to determine if your commercial roof is near or at the end of its lifespan is to have it inspected by a professional roofer.
