What is the Best Time of Year to Replace my Roof?

Replacing your roof is one of the most necessary evils of house ownership.

A well-constructed roof should last around 20 years (give or take the many factors that can impact its lifespan), but when it comes time to replace it, some thought needs to be given to when this should happen.

Due to safety hazard concerns, it is almost impossible to replace or repair a roof in the midst of a heavy downpour. In a typical Wellington climate, this rules out autumn, winter, and often, the beginning of spring.

Given the fact that Wellington doesn’t have definable seasons like other parts of the country, the best bet is to try and replace your roof in the height of summer. This leaves space for some leftover spring rainfalls and early morning frosts to disappear, leaving a dry, neutral temperature to work in.

If the temperatures get too hot (and let’s be honest, in Wellington, it rarely does!) It’s best to avoid these days due to overheating of the materials used, and subsequent worker safety.
