Reasons Why Fall Is The Best Season For Roof Repairs

Roof work isn’t easy. It’s extremely dangerous and weather conditions, temperatures and height all work together to increase the difficulty level. That’s why you should trust a roofing professional like Carolina Custom Contractors to handle your dirty work.

We have been hit with one hurricane already this season, but hopefully we won’t see any more action anytime soon, especially due to all of the flooding our area has experienced. Once hurricane season is over, time some time to access your roof. If your roof is in need of a repair or full replacement, fall is the best season to fix it. Why? We are glad you asked!

  • Reduced Wind & Rain Damage. Now that hurricane season has passed, we can breathe a little easier until next September. We will experience average storms for the foreseeable future. Now, we aren’t saying that roofing damage can’t or won’t happen during this time, but it’s definitely less likely. Use this time to figure out what needs to be fixed or repaired.
  • Ideal Weather Conditions. Roofing is best installed when the temperature is between 45 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Now, here in Myrtle Beach, we typically only see those numbers in January and February. Our fall and winter seasons allow a wider window to handle these repairs. The colder is gets, the more difficult it becomes to install shingles because they become more brittle and break easily when nailing them to the roof.
  • Proper Sealing. If you decide to repair your roof during the autumn months, these new shingles will have enough time to adequately bond to the roof before winter arrives. They will help to better insulate your home from colder temperatures, which can lead to lower electric bills.

If you have experienced any roofing damage from Hurricane Florence or any subsequent storms, please schedule an inspection with Carolina Custom Contractors of Myrtle Beach! We will be able to shoot you straight and let you know if a roof repair or a full roof replacement would be your best bet.
