Time Schedule

One of the most important things for replacing a roof is the time schedule of the roofing contractors as well as the homeowners. If your home is in desperate need of a roof replacement then as soon as possible is your best answer. 

However, for most homeowners, it’s not that urgent and it can wait until the best time for the roofing company. Depending on how many projects they have already or what ones need to get done in summer can make your home roof replacement pushed back a little bit. 

The good news is that it’s typically not a very long wait, to begin with because of how fast roofers can replace an entire roof. 


Depending on where you live and what time of the year it is can have an effect on the ability to replace a roof or not. During winter while it is still possible to replace a roof many companies try to do them in the summer and fall time when the weather is nicer. Spring can be a difficult time because of the chances of rain. Summer has one drawback for roof replacements and that’s extreme heat. 

When the weather gets very hot being on top of a roof working with dark asphalt the roof can be extremely hot. This can be dangerous for roofers and sometimes means that work can’t be done that day on the home.
