Thinking about repairing the roof on your St Paul home?
Some jobs we do around the house are based on the season. After all, we typically only cut grass in the warmer months, we have all grown up with the phrase “spring cleaning” and shoveling the snow on the sidewalk is normally associated with winter. So, when do you think it is best to do a roofing job? Like any other home-related job, there are times that are more suited to roofing – not that it means you should only repair your roof under certain conditions! Before you do, give Eastern Roofing a call at 651-238-1313 and let us see whether the job needs a professional touch.
However, some months of the year make the job more accomplishable than others, so knowing the signs for “when to roof” is valuable. These characteristics are as follows:
- During the cold temperatures (below 45 degrees Fahrenheit) of winter is the worst time of year to try to hire a roofing company. This is because it is more dangerous due to the elements – rain, snow, sleet, etc. If you should find yourself in need of roofing repair during this time, then be sure to contact a professional roofing company, as they will have the tools and experience necessary to take care of the problem.
- If possible, avoid roof repairs on an extremely blustery day as the wind makes it difficult to ensure the ladder is firmly in place and the wind may blow leaves, debris, etc. to the roof which you may trip on. If there are roof repairs to be made on a windy day, be sure that you have an assistant there to help you.
- Ideally, the best time to replace or repair your roof is during the late spring or early summer. During these times of the year, the weather is more conducive to roof repairs as there are fewer rainstorms and ice is not an issue. Of course, with the weather being ideal for roofing this also means that many reputable roofing companies will be extremely busy. In fact, if you are planning to have some roofing repairs, or perhaps a new roof installed, you may want to call a roofing company several weeks in advance so that you can be sure your work is able to be done. This early planning will also benefit you financially, as many companies will actually give you a discount.
- It is important to note, that it is not uncommon for a roof repair or installation to take 2 to 3 weeks. Consequently, you will want to schedule the job during a period where your region is not known for extreme winds and rain as this could impede the job.
Having a roofing repair or installation is a part of homeownership. However, you can help it go more smoothly by scheduling during a time frame that should accommodate everyone or aspect as much as possible.
