Fall is a Great Time to Roof!
Cooler days and less rain combine to provide ideal conditions to replace a roof. The dryer days make it easier to schedule jobs and keep projects running smooth and on time. Fall is also the busiest time of year for roofers. Homeowners that need a new roof usually want one before winter sets in. Others may have an old insurance claim with a chance of losing depreciation on the claim. Or perhaps the homeowner simply put off the roofing for the better part of the year. All these factors add up to roofing’s busy season.
Because fall is a busy time for roofing contractors, some people may be anxious to get in line and rush into a contract. Don’t feel rushed! Take your time.
Select the right contractor and remember these simple guidelines:
- Get all roofing details and promises in writing.
- Don’t ever sign a contract with a cancellation fee.
- Never give a contractor any money up front.
Chances are any good, reliable roofer is going to have a backlog at this time of the year. That’s okay. In fact, a roofer who says he can get to the job right away is a red flag. In fall, the good roofers have a wait list, and your job may have to be done after the frost has arrived. Don’t worry. We roof all winter long and rarely have any problems. Because Excel Roofing has been in business for over 20 years, we know how to roof in winter.
