In general, you should have your roof inspected at least twice a year, ideally in spring and fall. Why spring and not summer? Scheduling roof maintenance – and home improvement projects – in summer has several practical advantages.
These advantages include:
It’s Easier to Schedule an Appointment With a Contractor in Spring
Summer is the most popular season for remodeling. Demand for contractor services reaches its peak during summer, which means you might have a hard time scheduling an appointment with a contractor. However, if you decide to schedule roofing maintenance – or your planned remodeling project – in spring, you’ll be able to schedule an appointment on your preferred date. Not to mention you’ll be able to take advantage of the special deals some contractors offer to offset a drop in demand for their services
Here’s a pro-tip: if you’re looking for contractors, it’s best to choose a complete roofing services company. Doing so will save you the trouble of having to look for other contractors in case you need services they don’t offer.
The Mild Weather Conditions in Spring Are Ideal
Warm weather is ideal for home improvement projects, but it can be too much of a good thing. Over time, working in high temperatures can affect contractors’ efficiency. But, if you schedule roof maintenance in spring, contractors will be able to work more efficiently in its mild weather conditions.
Important note: it’s also recommended that you schedule a roof inspection after a storm or extreme weather even. That way, storm damage can be detected and fixed early, and the payout from your storm damage insurance claim can be maximized.
One more thing: to ensure all the warning signs of roofing damage are detected, you should hire an experienced roofer.
