It’s almost that time of year again. Cooler weather, rains, falling leaves, drastic temperature changes, Fall is one of the busiest times of year for roofing contractors. Heavy rains combined with cool weather, on top of the fallen leaves can put the stress on even the best roof and gutter systems. Especially if problems already exist or proper maintenance hasn’t been performed recently.
Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t have their roofs ready in time for the first wave of harsh weather and as a result, end up waiting weeks on a reputable contractor to repair their problem. During one of the busiest times of year as they are servicing others in the same position, this can be a treacherous time. As they wait, the chances of disaster and increased costs go up and up with each rain or storm.
It can be avoided. Fall begins in just a week and now is the best time to have your roof inspected and get it up to snuff and ready for what is coming. The weeks following school start dates typically are a slower time for roofing contractors as homeowners concentrate on family matters and preparing for the school year. The roof just isn’t something people think about especially when they are busy.
During these slower times, having an inspection, maintenance, or repair job can be done in much less time than during busier times. Saving days, weeks, even months of waiting. Having your roof problems taken care of now rather than later can save you major headaches over the next few months.
With only weeks (or even days, it’s Georgia, who knows?) left until the weather changes, having maintenance and/or repairs done on your roof now can be one of the best decisions you will make all year.
