The Best Time for Roofing in Phoenix
It might surprise you to learn that roofers have a season just like other pursuits. Hunters and fishermen have seasons. Athletes have seasons. So do apparel companies and accountants, retailers and delivery companies. It’s just the way the world operates and understanding it can help you avoid the pitfalls that most fall into, like crowds, wait times, and lack of service.
In Phoenix, peak roofing season corresponds to the months of the year which see the least amount of rain. That works out to be April, May and June around here, so those will be the times when getting a roofer quickly will be next to impossible. It’s just a matter of supply and demand since many of the roofing customers getting service in those months will have been scheduled well in advance.
Getting the roofing you need in peak season is going to be a different ballgame than if you call for service in the wintertime when roofers aren’t busy with projects. In fact, roofing in peak season can come with some additions including:
- Higher Costs: If roofing companies have full schedules, they can raise their pricing to allow for customers who’re willing to pay more to move to the front of the line. It’s just how the business works.
- Longer Timelines: When roofing schedules are full, it’s going to take longer to get to your project. If you have roof damage that’s causing you headaches, this could be a real problem for you. You can expect delays due to material shortages and more.
- Poor Customer Service: If a roofer has 25 projects ongoing, they’re going to have less time to devote to you and your needs. This is basic supply and demand. When there are fewer customers, you’re going to get better service.
Your best option for quick roofing results will be to avoid those months completely. Yes, that means there will be a higher chance of precipitation, but it’s a risk you might have to take if you need roofing and you need it fast. For roof repairs, there’s not much that can be done to prepare for this season, but if you’re planning new roof construction then you should aim for a month outside the high demand period. This will save you tons of money and time.
