The drop in temperatures is the first sign that the holiday season is right around the corner, and with it comes pumpkin pie, turkey, green bean casserole and piping hot chocolate. As the autumn leaves begin to turn, you will need to write a list, check it twice, and plan ahead to ensure your roof is replaced before winter storms take hold. Fall is the optimal time to begin a roof replacement project, not only are the cooler temperatures more comfortable to work in, you also avoid the risk of the summer heat and rain that could potentially damage your roof as you are living through the replacement process.
Why Fall is a Great Time to Replace Your Roof
Prepare your home for winter: During the hot summer months your roof is a prime target for the intense summer heat and heavy summer rain. If you are having an issue with leaks now they will inevitably get worse during the cold winter months, add heavy snow and ice into the mix and you definitely have a recipe for disaster. Contacting your Skyline Designs Roofing & Restoration professional for a full inspection and fall roof replacement will ensure that your home is well prepared for the cold winter months.
Re-roofing will allow you to save on heating costs: If you roof is in poor condition and has insufficient insulation and ventilation, your home will be comprised and your energy costs will literally go through the roof, no pun intended. Your Skyline Designs Roofing & Restoration expert will replace your old roofing during the fall months to ensure that you save as much money as possible when the cold weather arrives and you begin to use more fuel to heat your home.
