The process of replacing an old roof can be daunting, but it’s worth all the time and effort, especially when it completely updates the look and feel of your home. There are many factors to consider before undertaking a roofing project, some of which include deciding on the right roofing materials for your home, the availability of your preferred roofing company, if you’re able to fit the project into your own schedule as well as the best time of year to complete the project.
To complete your roofing project accurately and efficiently, your roofing company needs to be able to work in cool and stable weather conditions. This allows them to work uninterrupted and capable of completing your roofing project on time.
The best season to complete a roofing project changes, depending on where you reside, in Franklin, Summer is the best time of year to see to all your roofing needs. We explain why below.
Franklin has a humid subtropical climate which means that the area experiences hot and humid summers and cold and wet winters. Precipitation is evenly distributed throughout the year; annually, Franklin receives about 53 inches of rainfall, well above the national average. Tornadoes and tropical cyclones frequent the Franklin area during the Springtime.
Due to Franklin’s notorious tornado season occurring during the Springtime, it’s best to avoid any roofing work during this time. One of the only reasons why Franklin homeowners repair or replace their rooftops in the Spring is if a passing tornado had badly impacted their properties. If your roofing system has been affected by any severe weather conditions, it’s important to contact your local roofing company to protect yourself and your home from any further damages or injuries.
Summers are the best time to complete all your roofing and home renovation projects. However, Summers can get quite heated in Franklin; therefore, if you’re planning any roofing work, it’s important that your roofing team starts working as early in the day as possible to avoid that midday heat.
While most tornadoes take place during the Springtime, Tennessee has a Fall tornado season as well. If you can put off your roofing project for a later date, it is best recommended that you do so.
Winters in Tennessee are cold and wet. While it’s not raining every day of the season, it’s important that you keep a close eye on the weather should you want to take on any roofing work during this time of year.
