The Best Time of Year for Roof Repair

Don’t wait for urgent roof repairs.

For every repair, there is a season. If there’s a drip or damage to your roof, you may need a roof repair or even a replacement. If your roof needs repairs, what is the best time to get them done?

Urgent Repairs Shouldn’t Wait

If you have a serious problem with your roof, don’t wait to address it. Your roof could suffer more damage as a result. Often, roofs experience damage due to winter storms when branches fall onto a roof. If you live in a place where hurricanes are a common occurrence, you’ll also need to check your roof after those high winds pass through. If you notice that there is significant damage, don’t wait; call for a roof repair immediately.

After Winter Ice Dams

During the winter, snow and ice cover your roof if you live in a climate where they are common. If your roof experiences damage from ice dams, you may not notice this until the spring. An ice dam occurs when ice backs up in your gutter and starts to creep under your roofing. It can lead to serious roof damage over time.

If the damage is small, you may not notice it for a while. Take a look in your attic if you know that you’ve had some problems with ice dams over the winter, and ensure that you look for small leaks that could be signs of a larger problem and a need for roof repair. According to Eco Home, “a well-made roof should have no icicles whatsoever, just a fluffy pile of snow at the edge.”

Summer is often dry, but it can be very warm and hard to put in a full day of roof repair.

Is Spring or Summer The Best Time to Repair Your Roof?

The best time of the year to repair your roof really depends on the climate in your particular area. In some places, spring and summer are a good time to repair your roof as they are relatively dry times of the year. They are generally quieter times of the year for roofing companies, and sometimes you can secure good discounts on roof repair or replacement. However, as people look at going back to work and school, business tends to pick up. There’s the added summer challenge of heat. While it’s helpful for a roof to be dry to facilitate repairs, if it’s too hot and humid, that can make it hard for roofers to stay on your roof for a long period of time.

Fall Is Ideal Roof Repair Season

During the fall, the weather is more ideal for roof repair. In most locations, it’s not rainy until later in the fall. It’s also cooler, which means that it’s easier for a roofing company to send workers out for an entire day of work on your roof.

The intermediate temperatures of fall are also beneficial for your shingle installation. If they are too hot or too cold, they don’t seal as easily and develop the airtight barrier that you need to keep your roof safe year after year. Fall is the time when the temperature gives you the perfect conditions for this to happen.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
