Late Summer Is the Perfect Time to Replace Your Roof

When it comes to roofing systems, the last thing you want to do is wait to replace yours. If your roof is in bad shape, don’t put off a roofing installation. Give our experts a call – the summer season is a great season to replace it.


The busiest time of year for many home improvement companies is spring through early summer, which means a late summer roof replacement is ideal. Not only will home improvement companies have more flexibility in their schedules, but you may also be able to get a better price. At P.J. Fitzpatrick, we can work with your busy schedule to make sure your roof is installed at your convenience and in a timely manner. Contact us today.


The most popular type of roofing system is one made with asphalt shingles. When it comes to asphalt shingle installations, it’s advantageous to have temperatures that don’t drop below 40 degrees at night. As the roof is installed, asphalt shingles can be laid better in temperatures that stay warm for an extended period of time. In late summer, temperatures aren’t likely to drop, which means your roofing installation will solidify well.

In addition, late summer temperatures mean all of the roofing materials needed for your new roof will be in good condition. When temperatures get low, shingles may be brittle and sealants can take longer to cure. By installing your roof in the summer, you allow your contractors to get the job done faster and easier.

Winter Preparation

If your roof is in bad shape, it’s not a good idea to put it through another harsh Northeastern winter. Cold temperatures and moisture can mean even more damage to your roof and even your home itself. Scheduling a roofing installation in the late summer gives you peace of mind. Once the temperatures drop and the snow, ice, sleet, and hail start to fall, you’ll know that your roof can withstand the winter weather to keep your family safe and dry.

If you’re in need of a roofing installation, let our experts help you choose the right color, material, and more. Give us a call to get started.
