With temps dropping (and then rising again!) and falling leaves everywhere, it's the ideal season for roof repairs. Whether you're performing regular maintenance or need to completely replace a roof that's in bad condition, now is the prime time. Here are three reasons to schedule your roof repairs today.
1. The Weather Is Mild
During this time of year, the weather isn't too hot or too cold: It's just right for roof repairs. High summer temperatures can make roofing work more difficult, and chilly winter weather can make it treacherous for professional roofers to be on the roof. During fall, mild weather helps ensure the job goes as quickly and smoothly as possible. Unfortunately, if you wait too long to do repairs, you may end up having to pay more to repair or replace your roof as the problems with your roof worsen.
2. Winter Weather Is Around the Corner
As cold weather approaches, you want to make any necessary roof repairs to ensure your home stays warm and your utility bills stay low. Once sleet, ice or possibly snow come on the scene, it's crucial that your home is protected from the elements. A sound roof with properly fastened shingles can help make your home watertight. If you do end up requiring a major repair, shingles are more brittle during cold temperatures, making the task more difficult for your roofing professional.
3. Animals May Try to Get Indoors
Another great reason to perform fall roof repairs is that autumn is when rodents attempt to get indoors. As the weather cools, squirrels and other small animals may seek refuge in your warm home. Typically, they break into your home through the roof and attic insulation, so you don't want your roof to have any weak spots or possible entry points. Preventing entry is much easier than ridding your home of rodents once they gain entry.
