Do you need a new roof system? Our experts at Rose Remodeling are here with some advice: When it’s within your power to schedule out your roof replacement project, be sure you’re picking the right time to get the job done.

Not sure what the right time of year to replace your roof is? You’re in the right place to find out. In this article, we’re going to talk about the pros and cons of starting your project at different times throughout the year. 

Let’s dive in.

The Best Time to Replace Your Roof: Fall

The very best time to replace your roof system is during autumn, which typically encompasses September, October, and November. Not only will the temperature be perfect for doing the work, but it’s also smart to have your roof shored up before winter hits—even if you live in California. That way, you can enjoy the ultimate peace of mind, knowing your roof is in good shape for the more intense weather that is to come. The nicer weather will also make it safer and easier for your hired roofers in terms of navigating around your roof, and the shingles themselves will better adhere to the surface.

Your Next Best Options

The only roadblock to planning a roofing project in the fall is the fact that many other people likely will be, too. This might make it a challenge to find an available roofing company. 

For this reason, your next best option is to start the project in early/mid-spring. Much like fall, this transitional season brings about more temperate weather and lower humidity levels, which is ideal for both the shingle application and your roofing team. 

Summer and winter can be hit-or-miss when it comes to replacing your roof. Summertime brings about consistent weather, which makes planning much simpler, but the heat can cause issues in terms of the shingles adhering to the base of the roof. 

On the other hand, wintertime brings about unpredictable weather that can be more dangerous for roofers. On the plus side, you'll have an easier time finding roofing companies that have room in their schedule around this time of year.

At the end of the day, your best bet is to replace your roof as soon as you notice issues developing that cannot be fixed with simple repairs. That said, it's good to be aware that there are optimal times to plan a roof replacement throughout the year if you have the luxury of being able to schedule it out.
