A roof is like parents who can’t sleep until kids have a sound sleep. It’s like the army safeguarding the borders to keep its citizens safe. It braves all the extreme weather and climate conditions to protect your family.
If you have landed on this page, there is a high probability that you are looking for a roof replacement service. Here are 4 reasons why summer (June to August) is great for roofing projects in Maryland (MD), Virginia (VA), and Delaware (DE).
#1. Summer Favors Roof Diagnosis
Roofing replacement starts with spotting the damaged areas and components of your roof. Clear sky and dry weather make the job easy. The moderate-high temperature and low humidity help drive the moisture away from the slats or shingles. Tiny pores and leaks become widely visible. Summer heat also helps you get rid of termite or other pests that spoil the wooden structure. Ask your roofing contractor to use some effective pest control before starting the repair work.
With an average high-temperature of 84.7°F (29.3°C) and an average low-temperature of 72°F (22.2°C), July is the warmest month in Maryland and Virginia areas including Lanham, Annapolis, Parole, Arnold, Crownsville, Edgewater, Severna Park, Cape Saint Claire & Davidsonville.
#2. Stable Weather Increases Productivity
Experienced roofing contractors consider summer an ideal season for the task. Average atmospheric pressure (20-30 Hg), wind speed (6 to 7 miles/hour), and humidity (70%) all remain at their lowest in summer. Though summer is the wettest month in MD and VA, it doesn’t trigger humidity. The season brings an extended sunshine hour with it. The average sunshine hour stays around 10.9. If you are running out of time, summer is the best time to repair your roof as you can urge people to extend their hours for speedy completion.
If your area receives unexpected rainfall in the summer months, delay it till September. By the time, the amount of rainfall and the number of rainfall days both decrease. Annapolis receives the least rainfall in summer while Cape Saint Claire the most. The calm weather boosts efficiency and also helps people to focus better on their work.
#3. Lower Roof Replacement Cost
Most of the roofing projects get completed by fall and spring. People rush to fix their roofs before the snowfall, i.e., October and November. Summer is typically the low season for roofing contractors. These circumstances work in your favor because that makes summer a good time to get roofing services at bargain prices. As not many people purchase roofing materials in summer, expect the cost of shingles, clay, slate, etc., to drop as well.
Make a list of the items you need, and inquire about their prices from the local market. It’s good to source roofing material from the nearest market to reduce the freight cost and carbon footprints.
#4. Save Time for Your Festive Season
Complete your roof replacement project before the onset of the festive season. Around festive occasions like Thanksgiving and Christmas, roof repairing service providers face a crunch of manpower, which can increase your repair expense. Moreover, with things getting completed early, you have enough time in hand to focus on home furnishing and interior decoration. This will help you spend quality time with family during the holidays.
