Most roofing takes place from late May to late September, but if you’re ready is there any reason you can’t replace your roof in March or April?
Not only is spring viable for replacing your Denver roof, but it also has many advantages over other times of the year.
Let’s find out the most common pros to replacing your Denver roof in spring and any other seasonal information you need to know. Spring is not just okay for roofing – it might be better than summer.
Pros of Replacing Your Denver Roof in Spring
The bulk of roofing work takes place during summer, filling up lines at local Denver roofing companies. Even without a hailstorm, wait times can range from one to three months and longer if there’s a bad storm. The spring offers much shorter lines and waiting periods so you can go from signing to replacement in a few weeks instead of a few months.
To help drum up business some roofing companies offer discount services or free upgrades during the slower spring season. Spring discounts aren’t frequent but they’re not uncommon. If you’re ready for a roof replacement, ask your local roofer about possible seasonal discounts.
The Weather is Fine
Spring in Denver is filled with rainy days, snowy days, windy days, and cold days, but it’s also filled with many pleasant days. Asphalt shingle installation only requires 40 degrees ambient temperature for install, and Denver spring temperatures regularly push into the 60s and 70s.
If you ask any roofer, they’ll tell you 60 to 70 degrees is ideal for installing asphalt. It’s warm enough or a quick seal and cure but not too warm to cause sloughing or unsightly bleeding. Spring is the ideal time for asphalt shingle installation.
Be Prepared for Hail Season
Other than late season snow, spring is one of the mildest times of weather in Denver. Unfortunately, the spring revelry dies around late May when the skies turn dark with hailstorms.
If you want to avoid the issues that come with hail season, consider installing an impact-resistant (IR) roof to fend off damaging hail. While not hail-proof, IR materials are much stronger and likely to hold up when things get nasty. You can sit back and relax while all your neighbors are forced to replace their roof this hail season.
Cons of Replacing Your Denver Roof in Spring
Not Always Good Weather
During summer you can schedule your roof replacement for almost any day and expect great roofing weather but not in spring. Though spring is mostly pleasant in Denver, you can have rain, snow, and even blizzards. Dodging the weather can be frustrating but isn’t normally a big hinderance since even the nastiest of storms are gone within a few days.
Normally spring projects are expedited or move quickly thanks to short lines but keep in mind some roofing companies might not be fully staffed or otherwise have all their normal resources during spring. This can sometimes slow the process down if not all hands are on deck.
