Why Spring Is The Best Time To Do Roof Maintenance

As a rule of thumb, you should have your roof inspected by a professional contractor at least two times a year, ideally in spring and fall. But why spring and not summer? 


The Mild Weather Conditions in Spring Are Ideal

Contractors will be able to conduct roof maintenance and fix leaks efficiently in spring’s mild weather conditions. 

It’s Easier to Schedule an Appointment With a Contractor in Spring

There isn’t a lot of demand for home improvement projects in spring yet, so it’ll be easier to schedule an appointment with a roofing contractor. This is also the main reason why spring is the best time to start roof replacement projects. To offset the drop in demand, some contractors offer special deals and discounts on roofing panels. 

What’s the worst that could happen if you decide to wait until summer to have you roof maintained? There’s no guarantee you’ll be able to schedule an appointment with your preferred contractor, let alone find a roofer who can accommodate you. Summer, after all, is the season when demand for contractor services peaks. And, even if you manage to find a roofer, the person might not be able to provide the best service because of a packed schedule. No matter how you look at it, it makes more practical sense to have your roof maintained in spring. 

Getting Your Home Ready for Summer 

Here’s a pro-tip: if you’re considering replacing your roof, we recommend choosing light-colored shingles. The closer a shade is to white, the more heat it reflects. And, the less heat your roof absorbs, the lower strain on your HVAC system and the more energy savings you can enjoy.
