Caring for your roof can be a difficult task, but it doesn’t have to be. There are many factors to consider, like the weather, the temperatures outside, and the height of your home. But, overall, Bailey’s Roofing professionals can tell you that fall is the best time for roof repairs, and here’s why.
Perfect Conditions for Roof Repairs
Fall is when the temperatures start to drop, but not too much. After that, the weather gets nicer, and it’s the end of the stormy season. All of this makes it ideal for roofers to get to work on your home because it’s safer and more pleasant to be outside as they work.
By sealing the roof in the fall, there’s plenty of time for the shingles to adequately bond to the roof. This way, your roof is ready to protect your home from the wet winter weather that’s coming.
Storms Might Come Back in the Winter
Although it’s not very popular in the south, it’s possible that winter storms or more rain could show up in the winter. Unfortunately, this kind of weather can worsen any existing damage because of repairs that weren’t fixed in the fall.
Cold Weather Complicates Working with Shingles
When the weather gets too cold outside, shingles become more brittle, making them more challenging to work with. As we described earlier, fall has perfect weather, so you shouldn’t try to repair your roof in the winter because it’s more difficult than doing so in the fall.
Repairing your roof in the fall and preparing it for winter will help you save on heating. In addition, the repairs will allow your roof to insulate your home from the cold temperatures better and thereby lowering your energy bill.
Having our roofs repaired is simply just part of being a homeowner. Knowing these few simple things can save you a big headache and certainly a lot of money.
