Best Season for Roof Replacement in Washington DC Area

Updated: Jan 26, 2023

Roof Replacement in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC types of climate areas can be easily done during winter months. If fact, there are some advantages to performing this job during the off-season.

1. Lower prices and off-season discounts

Most people like to get roof replacements done during the peak season since the weather is more predictable, and people tend to avoid risks of possible job delays. However, if you want to go off-season, expect contractors to be less busy and offer discounts to schedule a job.

2. Quick turnaround times & Less wait times

During the summer, most contractors are very busy with projects, so it might take weeks before someone can come to give you an estimate. If you need the replacement soon, this could be very challenging. On the other hand, during late fall or winter, contractors can come out in a matter of a few days to provide the estimate and even start the job.

3. Your schedule is more predictable during the off-season too!

Replacing or repairing the roof can be a bit unpredictable, even during the Summer. So, if the job does not start on time, but your vacation time off or a house party is approaching, it will add additional stress to your plate. The winter season is more predictable in terms of vacations, road trips & camping. Enjoy the summertime with your family and friends, and get the job done off-season.

4. Don't wait - lower your utility cost

Broken, curled, or missing shingles can significantly drive up your heating & A/C bills. So, make sure to replace & repair the roof promptly when needed.

5. When it's too cold for the roof replacement & repair?

When the temperature drops below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, it could be too cold to perform the job as many manufacturers recommend the temperature to be at least 40 F to install shingles.

Summary: replacing and repairing the roof can be successfully done during the off-season (winter & spring), especially in non-extreme winter cold states such as Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. It can be cheaper and faster, however, keep in mind that shingles can't be installed if the temperature is below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. If roof issues are identified, it's best to get professional help ASAP, to keep the utility cost stable.
