Roofing Cost Per Square Foot Question

My question is this, does the season that you get your roof done have any sort of effect on the price?

Daniel - Homeowner - from June, 2017

Site Editor's Reply

Daniel, excellent question and one that is certainly worth looking at. Typically, the Summer and fall seasons are the driest and therefore the most desirable for most homeowners to reroof their house. It is no coincidence them that the roof cost per square foot is highest during these seasons. This is really a response to demand. Roofing contractors can charge more money to their customers because it's more desirable to have the work done in the dry season as opposed to the wetter seasons.

Conversely, the winter and spring time are more rainy and have more inclement weather. Therefore, they are less desirable to have roof work done, for obvious reasons. Having a tarp over your roof and having moisture potentially get into your home during these cold seasons is not optimal. However, homeowners can have work done on their home during these less desirable seasons with a little planning. This can save definitely you on the per square foot cost of a roof.
