Are you considering a full roof installment for your commercial building? Some owners prefer replacing a roof entirely so they can address widespread problems, get rid of an aging and unreliable roof, or switch to a new roofing material that’s a better fit their climate and budget. If you’re looking into a roof replacement, summer is the right time to get started: Let’s talk about why.
Availability is Great in Summer
Late spring and early summer are some of the best times for contractor availability for your roof replacement. That makes it easy to find the roofing specialist you want and increase the odds that they are able to start on your roofing project right away and finish it in a timely manner. Keep in mind that this kind of availability is important not only for your primary roofing company but for any sub-contractors that may be needed for additional work or specialized services. This time of year is simply easier for everyone to get coordinated.
We’ll also make a special mention of businesses that continue to be affected by lockdown measures and social distancing due to COVID-19 in 2020: These conditions actually make it a great time to start a roofing project for restaurants and other buildings that rely on customers: You won’t be losing as much business, and your building will be ready to open again at an opportune time to return to normal.
Late summer and fall, meanwhile, tend to have the opposite conditions: Everyone is trying to get roofing projects done before bad weather hits, so it’s difficult to find the time to complete a large project.
The Weather is Right
A full roof replacement also requires the right weather both for the safety of workers and proper treatment/installation of roofing materials. Summer is a great choice for this because the weather tends to be mild with longer dry periods. This means that the roof project can go on more quickly without delays and pauses, which is the best scenario for everyone.
Scheduling is Much Easier Over Time
With a project as large a full commercial roof replacement, sometimes new considerations appear as the project goes on. Bidding and planning may take longer than the owner expected. New plans may need to be made for specific areas or restoration projects. Sometimes old damage is more extensive than first thought. Issues like these are why it’s important to start as early in the season as possible, so the roof can still be completed along a reasonable timeline.
It’s a Great Time to Plan for an Energy-Efficient Roof
Summer is also the right time to enjoy the full benefits of a new energy-efficient roof, which can help reflect thermal energy and reduce the load on your building’s AC system. If this is something you’re interested in, make sure your roof is ready for summer weather now, rather than waiting.
