The Lower Mainland had some amazing sun and heat throughout this last season, meaning a fantastic time for many homeowners to act on some needed roofing work, including various repairs or a complete installation.
Rest assured; finding the right time to initiate some roofing solutions for your home is not a done deal for this year! If you’re convinced that the chances to schedule and carry out any roofing work on your home are basically limited to late spring and throughout the summer, think again.
An experienced Vancouver roofing contractor will know the best time to start up any particular residential job and how to take advantage of windows of opportunity that may actually be in the seemingly “off season.” Much depends on the nature of the work, how long it is expected to take to complete. Depending on the size and other requirements of the job, it may not be as weather-dependent as you imagine. Consulting your Vancouver roofing contractor about all of these factors is approach, as there are plenty of jobs that can be tackled very successfully throughout the fall and even during the winter months.
The Weather Factor for a Vancouver Roofing Contractor
Just one aspect that residential roofing companies need to take into account is the weather and planning around typical seasonal conditions. Given the temperate coastal conditions of the Lower Mainland in general, a “seasoned” Vancouver roofing contractor can predict with reasonable certainty what jobs can be booked for almost any month of the year.
In fact, contrary to popular belief, what a Vancouver roofing contractor looks for in the perfect weather is not just sun and heat. Too much of a supposedly good thing can actually be a detriment to getting the job done as efficiently. Extreme heat can cause certain roofing materials to soften or expand to an extent, and also create real comfort challenges for workers constantly exposed to hours of sun beating down on a dark surface. Right now is that perfect window between excessive heat and plenty of rain; early to mid-fall is the Vancouver area’s usually dry and pleasantly cooler season.
Vancouver Roofing Contractor and The Job Size
Whether it is a spot repair or a full roof replacement, the size of the job can obviously be a deciding factor in when it should start. Once summer has ended and the rush of roofing jobs is tapering off, you still have some good leeway to schedule a reliable Vancouver roofing contractor. There are plenty of touch-ups and even skylight installations, for example, that can be fit in before more extreme weather takes hold. Ensuring a sound roof before winter arrives is a wise idea.
