Avoid the Costly Mistake of Waiting Until Spring to Re-Roof
Ever thought of getting your roof done in the winter? Most people don’t. They wait until spring or summer when the weather is nicer.
If your roof isn’t in really bad shape, that’s not usually a big problem. But next spring will be a very different story.
Here’s why you should consider winter roofing if you’re thinking of getting your roof done in spring/summer 2013.
The Hail Damage Rush
The massive hailstorm in August 2012 damaged thousands of roofs. Because the storm hit late in the year, many homeowners weren’t able to get their claims looked at and their roofs redone. Others are waiting until next year to submit their claims.
Add these hail claims to the normal spring roofing rush and you could be impacted in the following ways:
DIFFICULTY FINDING A CONTRACTOR
Contractors will be scrambling to keep up with the enormous demand and many may have to turn down work.
USE OF SUB-CONTRACTORS
Other roofing companies may hire more sub-contractors to keep up with the added work, likely affecting the quality of the job.
YOU COULD END UP PAYING A PREMIUM
Even if you are lucky enough to get a contractor, you’ll likely end up paying more. It’s likely that prices will rise 10% or even more in the spring.
Avoid More Damage
Just because you can’t see a leak, it doesn’t mean there isn’t one. Often, leaks aren’t detected until they cause major damage to your home. Water could be collecting in the attic or running down the interior of your walls.
When the rainy spring season arrives and the snow melts, that leak could become a major issue. You could end up having to repair or replace a lot more than just your roof!
Winter Roofing is Common
Most people think that roofing can’t or shouldn’t be done in the winter. That’s simply not true. There may be snow on your roof but we sweep it away. When the old roofing is removed, you’re left with a bare roof deck, just as you would be in the spring or summer.
We are highly experienced in winter roofing and do it all the time with great results.
