Not only is spring a great time to replace your roof, but there are also many unique benefits of spring roofing not found in other seasons. Let’s learn five advantages of installing your Colorado Springs roof in the spring and how to get the process started now.
5 Benefits to Colorado Springs Roof in Spring
Your roofing consultant and the company they work for will likely have much more available time during spring compared to the peak season of summer. You’ll have an easier time reaching your sales guy, billing, or any other department when the lines aren’t as tied up. If you like the best (and easiest) communication, you shouldn’t wait until summer.
Again, spring is much slower for most Colorado Springs roofers compared to summer, so lines are normally much shorter. During spring, a company can take you from signing the contract to the final shingle in as little as two to three weeks, compared to two to three months of summer. If you’re not a fan of lines – you’ll be a fan of roofing in the spring.
Summer is supposed to be the time of year when you relax and enjoy yourself, but we all know that’s not the case. There are countless projects to knock out during summer’s pleasant weather, but your roof doesn’t have to be one of them.
During spring you have much more breathing room to evaluate your options, research who to hire, and schedule the replacement. Considering replacing your roof is a multi-thousand-dollar project – you don’t want to be rushed. Choose a spring roof replacement for a more deliberate process.
Perfect Roofing Weather
You’d think the perfect weather for asphalt shingle installation would be the summer but it’s actually spring and fall. During these seasons, the temperature is not too cold to cause curing issues but not too hot to cause sloughing or bleeding shingles. Most roofers agree around 60 to 70 degrees is the best temperatures for installing asphalt shingles. Temperatures which are common in spring.
Get Protected Before Hail Season
Colorado Springs homeowners know the threat of hail follows spring. Arm your roof with an impact-resistant (IR) roofing material before hail hits so you can sit back and relax while your neighbors have to file insurance claims. Not only is your IR roof more likely to weather the storm, but your insurance company should also offer discounts on your monthly premium for IR roofing.
