The Best Time to Install a Roof in Northeast Ohio


It is well known for those that have lived in Northeast Ohio that we deal with a mixed bag of weather year-round.  However, there is one time during the year that may be better when deciding to install a new roof – late summer, early fall.  The timing of your roof replacement can be influenced by a lot of factors, such as cost, availability, and of course weather.

While CJS Exterior Maintenance does install roofs almost year-round, there are some factors that play in the scheduling of your roof installation, making late summer, early fall the best time to schedule.  Let’s review a few:

  • Weather plays a large role in the scheduling and installation of your roof and is probably the single biggest factor for causing a delay. As you know, weather here in Northeast Ohio is unpredictable.  While there are certain weather conditions that can cause a delay, most often CJS can work through the adverse weather to complete your project on time.  However, August through October can provide some of the best weather conditions to have your roof installed.
  • The timing of your roofing project is another factor that you should consider. While most homeowners will look to schedule their installation between April and June, you may consider scheduling between August and October.  Many material companies offer discounts during this time of year, which can save you money on your project, and most of the summer vacations and traveling is complete, so you can be present during your new installation, if desired.
  • The volume of new roof installations during the spring and early summer months is typically higher. This can cause some issues when ordering roofing materials.  Once the volume of installations becomes more manageable for these companies, it is usually easier to obtain roofing materials, ensuring that you will get the exact product you want, and a chance at a better price.

As you can see, the best time to install a roof in Northeast Ohio is now – late summer, early fall.  CJS Exterior Maintenance puts 100% into every roofing project, but this time of year typically has fewer weather delays and a chance at better pricing on select materials.   Contact us today for your free roofing estimate throughout Cuyahoga, Lorain, Medina, and Summit Counties.
