Roof Replacement Contractors Grand Rapids, MI

Did your neighbors recently replace their roofs? Property developers tend to build houses in a neighborhood around the same time. This means that you may need to schedule roof replacement sooner than you think.

Here's what you need to know when planning to replace your roof. Please don't hesitate to call us with any questions.


From thunderstorms to sub-zero temperatures, spring weather can be unpredictable. As such, early spring has its own unique challenges compared to the other seasons.

If it gets cold, your contractor will need to hand-seal every shingle. That's why it's important to hire a reputable company that won't cut corners.

That being said, spring is still one of the busiest seasons for roofing contractors.


Summer is another busy time for roofing companies. That's why we recommend calling a contractor in the late spring or early summer if you want to replace your roof between June and August. Otherwise, you may end up having to wait.

Keep in mind that the best contractors are busy year-round.


It's a misconception that you can only replace your roof in late spring and summer. The truth is that a lot of homeowners replace their roofs in the fall.

Fall is a great opportunity to replace your roof before the snow flies. This will protect your home from water damage during the long winter months.

Keep in mind that the temperatures may drop in mid to late autumn. For this reason, hire a reputable contractor with experience in cold weather installation.


You can replace your roof during the winter. But you'll need to hire a roofing contractor who has experience working in cold weather.

In the winter, a contractor can't depend on the sun's heat to seal the adhesive on asphalt shingles. This means that they have to hand-seal every shingle when it's cold outside. While this is possible, it will take a bit longer to replace your roof.

Some contractors may experience a slow season during the winter. But a reputable roofing contractor will be busy year-round. Either way, don't wait until your roof is leaking to hire a contractor.

Don’t Wait Until Your Roof Leaks

It may seem obvious to replace your roof before it leaks. But you wouldn’t believe how many homeowners put it off until the last minute.

If you ignore a leaky roof, you'll end up with water damage inside your attic, walls, and the rest of your home. Not to mention mold and mildew.

Be sure to call a roofing contractor before it ever gets to that point.
