Best Time of Year to Replace a Roof?

If you have been considering a residential roof replacement in Dallas, the fall is the perfect time of year for replacing roofs. At Shepherd Roofing & Renovations, we specialize in repairing and replacing roofs in Dallas and neighboring cities.  If you know a roof replacement is looming in your future, here are the top 6 reasons why you should bite the bullet and replace it during the cool, autumn season.


1. Storm Season is Basically Over

Summer storms are always a problem in Texas. Between severe thunderstorms passing through almost daily, and the occasional tropical storm or hurricane, roofs in Texas take heavy abuse from the weather.

Completing a roof repair or replacement in the Fall ensures that you catch any storm damage that may have occurred on your roof during the summer season before it becomes a very expensive problem for your entire home during the winter months.


2. Fall Weather is Perfect for Roofing

Not only will your roofing contractor appreciate that you are putting up a roof in cooler temperatures, but your new roof will also seal better during the fall. Nearly all roof replacements use asphalt shingles. These shingles seal best when temperatures are a little cooler.


3. Winter is Coming

Texas winter storms can be just as harsh on your roof as storms during summer. If your roof was already damaged during the summer storm season, winter storms could cause much more damage.

Roof damage leads to water entering your home, causing interior drywall damage, mold growth, and other structural problems. By replacing your roof in the fall, you avoid having to do major repairs during winter to your home.


4. Shingles Get Brittle in Cold Weather

Once the weather gets colder, your asphalt shingles become more brittle. This can make it harder to replace your roof. If you are doing a Dallas roof repair during the cold, more shingles could actually be damaged, costing you time and money. Avoid these issues by replacing your roof during fall.


5. Save on Your Heating Bills

A new roof on your home means that the house is better insulated. No gaps in the roof or missing shingles can allow even a little bit of heat to escape. When you have a new roof on your home, you will be able to heat your home more efficiently and reduce your heating costs.


6. Avoid Price Increases

Buyers beware: manufacturers of shingles often increase their prices at the end of the year or in January. If you schedule your roof replacement in the fall, you avoid seasonal price hikes that run in tandem with the New Year.
