According to the roofing experts, fall has been deemed the best time to conduct roof replacements. Fall presents many benefits that aren’t found in the other seasons. These include mild temperatures, more predictable weather, and less moisture. With the harsh winter months just around the corner—make sure your roof is ready to endure the heavy moisture!
For starters, the mild weather takes a lot of stress and strain off of the roofers who are replacing your roof. They can work more efficiently without worrying about heat exhaustion and other heat-related concerns.
Fall is usually a drier time as well—especially in the Northern Nevada climate. Less moisture and consistent mild weather make it much easier to schedule your roof replacement without having to constantly check the weather for any rogue storms coming out of the Sierra Mountains.
In regards to the technical aspects of roof replacements, the cooler weather will help the shingles also stay at a reasonable temperature for installation. When it is too hot, the shingles soften, making them difficult to work with. The weather is also warm enough to properly seal the shingles quickly after the roof is complete.
Lastly, with winter looming around the corner, it’s smart to ensure that your roof will make it through the unpredictable Northern Nevada winters. Even small issues can be amplified causing structural damage, trigger leaks, and other moisture-related problems. The last thing you want is to wake up on Christmas morning with a leaky roof!
If you’re concerned about your roof being too old or having issues, there are some telltale signs that your roof may need replacing or some serious improvements.
You can check yourself by looking for obvious signs of deterioration or faultiness. Look out for things like missing shingles, peeling, buckling, lifting, or shininess of the shingles.
