The Benefits of Replacing Your Roof in Summer

If you’re planning on replacing your roof this summer, then there are many ways in which you can benefit from it. From easier installation to fewer time restraints, you’ll be able to enjoy your brand new roof in no time at all. Despite our team of professionals here at Roofer UK being able to conduct roof repairs and replacements all year round, the summer months are ideal for our experts to conduct highly-skilled work on your roof with the utmost care and precision.

Here’s how having a roof replaced in the summer will benefit you:

Installation is made easier

The cold weather can slow down operations when it comes to roof replacements. The materials used to construct it can become more brittle, making it harder for them to be laid. For a more efficient working pace, replacing a roof in more dry and mild weather is considerably more favourable in comparison to other weather conditions or time of year.

Moisture levels are lower

Snow, ice, freezing, defrosting and refreezing can all contribute to the dampening of materials, which could subsequently render them useless. Freezing conditions can also cause cracks to forms which in turn could cause further damage. Despite our team of experts being fully-trained and highly-qualified, it’s impossible to control the weather. To prevent these problems from arising, it’s always advisable to have your roof replaced in the summer, as opposed to the winter.

Less chance of delays

Bad weather conditions (particularly over the winter) can cause delays to the replacement of your roof. By having work done during the summer, there’s very little, by way of weather, that will slow the project down, resulting in prompt completion and exceptional results.

It’s cheaper and quicker

Not only can you benefit from a summer installation financially, but it will also be completed in a timely manner, so you can rest assured that your roof will be ready for all weather, for many years to come. You’ll have absolute peace of mind when having your roof installed by the professionals here at Roofer UK. We only use the finest materials and excellent workmanship, providing you with a strong roof that has been meticulously constructed from start to finish.

Enhances its roof efficiency during the winter

When your roof becomes damaged, it can seriously affect the efficiency of your home. If issues are left untreated throughout the winter, then heat will easily be able to escape through the damaged roof which will subsequently lead to a cold house and extortionate energy bills. Having those problems fixed during the warmer months will allow energy costs to be buffered, just in time for the cold weather to set it.

Other considerations

Personal plans – don’t schedule a roof replacement during a time where previous commitments are scheduled. You should also allow enough time for the roof replacement to be completed before making any new arrangements. Planning ahead is essential when substantial house improvements are being carried out.

  • Do you have a holiday booked?
  • Will you be having guests coming to stay?
  • Do you have a loft conversion planned?

Some roofing materials may have restrictions – depending on the weather, there may be some restrictions on the building materials being used to carry out your roof replacement. Ask a professional for some advice, or ask to be made aware of any restrictions before construction starts.

Phone ahead of time – call the roofing company ahead of schedule to check whether they’re able to carry out the roof work when you need it. If you live in Barnet, Edgware, Elstree, Watford or the surrounding areas, then you can get in touch with a member of our team to check our availability – we’re always happy to help.
