When Should You Book Your Roof Replacement?

Are you thinking about a new roof or a roof repair for next year? Well, the early bird gets the worm. In London Ontario, you should book your ideal roofing company during the winter.

Armour Shield Roofing strongly discourages homeowners from going up and down ladders or doing repairs on their roofs. The accidents and fatalities sustained by untrained individuals are tragic and avoidable by calling a professional roofing contractor.

The ball never stops rolling for popular roofing companies that have a 5 star reputation; the most desirable companies are usually the busiest.
In most cases, a roofing company with a great reputation needs to be scheduled several months in advance, even November and December. Read Armour Shield Roofing’s numerous satisfied client testimonials here. In 26 years, we have not had a single complaint.
That’s why you should take the initiative now and get a date confirmed on your calendar. If you choose to wait, you may run into some problems down the road.  

 

Book early to use the best roofing company:

You never want to compromise quality or your peace of mind by working with a less desirable roofing company. When you wait until the last minute to reach out, you may find your ideal company is heavily booked.
We’ve all heard horror stories about disastrous customer experiences that were never resolved. Working with a less-reputable company brings a greater risk of poor quality workmanship or customer service. To avoid this risk, it’s safer to book in advance with a well-known company.

 

Waiting for a contractor can see your roof condition worsening:

If you find your ideal roofing company is booked up for several months, you can choose to wait until they are available. That decision may save you some trouble working with another company. If you’re worried about your roof’s condition, you may be able to tarp the worst areas. Ask your favourite roofing contractor.

Letting a small roofing problem become a bigger one usually leads to roof leaks. Minor storm or tree damage can worsen dramatically over time. In most cases, if the roof is past its useful-life time you need to replace your roof and other roofing associated products such as roof vents, flashing and eavestroughing.

 

A small leak should be inspected right away:

A leak that’s left neglected long enough can allow enough water into your home to cause damage. Insulation and attic space may need additional work. Large build-ups of moisture like this are the perfect breeding ground for mould.

This problem is complicated because the average person cannot know the full extent of their roof’s condition without climbing a ladder and looking. This is work that must be left to a professional roofer. Consequently, if you have to wait for at least a few months, we recommend trying to get a professional inspection done in the meantime. That will give you an idea of how urgently your roof needs work. Read Armour Shield’s blog post: ‘Are There any Roofing Projects I Can DIY – 3 Dangers to Consider’

 

Booking a company early allows everyone better flexibility:

As mentioned, it can be challenging to find a reputable roofing company that isn’t booked at least a few months in advance and if you can find a company on short notice, it’s unlikely they have much flexibility for dates.

By booking far in advance for next year, you can ensure that you get an ideal date and time that works with your schedule.

 

In conclusion:

The best roofing companies are almost always the busiest. If you’d love to work with a reputable company, you should contact them as soon as you can. When people wait too long, they can find themselves dealing with less desirable companies, worsening roof conditions, and a lack of schedule flexibility.
