SETTING UP A SCHEDULE WITH YOUR ROOFER: Best time for a Repair

Updated: Apr 22


The Roofing Project is time-consuming. So, when it comes to Roof Repair, it is important to consider weather-related issues before scheduling a Roofing Project.


Rainy Season. If you start a roof repair project during the rainy season, you may have to wait for days or even weeks for them to work again. So unless you are absolutely sure the weather will be clear for at least 3-5 days, you should hold off on the project.


Snowy Season. It's also a good idea to avoid roof repairs. Roofers often have to be steady on angled decking and tall ladders. A smooth roof surface, especially with metal roofing, can prove dangerous because it can become a path of harm. Even flat roofs can be dangerous. In addition, sudden snowfall may even delay your roofing project. So try to schedule your roof repair as little as possible during the winter. Usually, the snowy season lasts from late December to early March. Therefore, you should just schedule your roof repair during this period unless absolutely necessary.


For good quality results, schedule your roofing repair projects from late spring to mid-summer. Although you may encounter light rain in late summer and may slow down the roof repair project, it doesn’t last very long.



Availability for a Roof Project:


  • Supply Availability - make sure that your Roofer or Contractor has enough time to order the materials in advance. Materials deliveries or unavailability slow down the roof repair process.

  • Contractor/Roofer Availability – During peak season, most roofers and general contractors have a limited schedule. That’s why it’s common for us to require an assessment of your roof to take two to three weeks.

  • Availability of the roofing crew - When you schedule a roofing project, consider the availability of the roofers’ schedule. Roofers and contractors typically have a limited number of staff, so if you delay the schedule, the longer you have to wait for the crew to arrive.

  • The level of urgency - Your Roofer will always determine if there’s a need for urgency. If you have serious roof leaks and other damage as well, then you need to address it before any other repair is needed.

  • Distance - The distance the staff must travel to the site and complete the job can absolutely make a difference in the timing of the project.


Autumn is an ideal time to replace or repair your roof. With the temperatures cooling off from the summer, yet still warm enough to ensure proper sealing, the fall is one of the most popular times of year to replace roofs in North Texas.
