From falling leaves, cooler temperatures, and pumpkins as decorations, fall is officially here. While many people focus on relaxing before the frigid temperatures and the heavy snows arrive, others are taking advantage of the season to invest in roof repairs. With winter right around the corner, below are a few reasons why fall is the best time for roof repairs in Dayton, Ohio.
Better Weather Conditions
In Ohio, the autumn months do not have the humidity, high temperatures, or thunderstorm intensity that the summer months bring. Singles, especially asphalt shingles, are best installed when the thermometer is around 50 degrees and on a clear day. These conditions allow the seal strips to adhere properly, which keeps the singles on your roof better. Also, fall is a more comfortable time to do roofing work for the contractor.
Most homeowners use the summer months to do home repairs, especially roof repair and replacement. During the peak summer months, you may have a more challenging time finding a contractor. If you do find a contractor, it takes a while for them to finish your roofing project. When you do your roof repair or replacement in the off-season, the contractor can get to your roof faster and complete the project in a shorter time frame.
Save on Heating Bills
When temperatures fall, people turn up the heat in their homes to stay comfortable. Many people don’t realize that a damaged roof allows more heat to escape your home, raising your energy bills. A new energy-efficient roof with good insulation will help you save money on your energy bills as you’ll use less energy to stay comfortable during the cold, snowy winter months.
Winter Is Approaching
While it feels as though there’s plenty of time until winter comes, time speeds by, and before you know it, the fall months are gone, and you’re left staring at a blanket of snow in your yard, hoping that your roof will maintain it’s integrity until winter is over and kicking yourself for not taking advantage of the fall months to get your roof repaired.
