Fall is the best season to get a roof replacement. Leaves are changing colors and falling from the trees, the weather is cooler, and … in the words of Ned Stark, “Winter is Coming.” (That was a Game of Thrones reference, in case you were wondering.) Here are a few reasons why now is the best time to call a Charlotte roofing company and consider replacing your roof.
The weather is workable.
If you live in Charlotte, it’s still relatively warm outside, but you know that January and February are the toughest months for our city in terms of winter storms. So make sure you prep your house for the new season now, while the sun is still shining bright and keeping the cold at bay. Its much harder for a roofing contractor to work when they’re fighting nature. The afternoon storms of summer will easily cut a job short, and winter precipitation makes roofing much harder. Fall weather is easy to bear, since it’s not too hot nor too cold, and the climate is still dry.
Bundle it with your gutters.
Homeowners should already be getting their gutters cleaned twice a year and having their roof regularly inspected. While you’re at it, you might as well bundle your roof replacement with a gutter replacement or repair and knock it all out at one time. That way, you’ll only have to worry about getting compensated by your insurance company once. (And don’t worry, we handle that for you.) You may even be able to get a discount on services by purchasing a bundle.
Animals are seeking shelter.
And your roof is a good spot to locate it. If you have leaks, cracks, or loose shingles, they present a great opportunity for critters to work their way in and set up a nest in your home, where they’ll scratch, chew, and scurry all winter long. Have your home inspected and make all necessary roof repairs now, before the animals set up shop.
Autumn presents the best opportunity to prep your home for the cold. With the holidays right around the corner, no doubt you’ll need to insure your house is well set for guests and family members who are coming into town.
