Why Replace Your Roof During the Summer in Utah

If you need a new roof on your home or office, you have several decisions to make including choosing an experienced roofing contractor and selecting the type of roofing materials. No matter what type of roofing material you choose, scheduling your project alongside the optimal weather for installation will ensure your project stays on schedule. If your new roof is installed during poor weather or under temperatures that are too cold or too warm, issues may arise that will put your home improvement investment behind schedule.

With four distinct seasons to choose from, why replace your roof during the summer in Utah? While spring and fall sound like good options with cooler temperatures, you will also have to contend with unpredictable precipitation. Frigid cold or unbearable heat can make the installation more difficult. Summertime in Northern Utah is known as the dry season, with summer months offering mild temperatures averaging 81°F.

The Wasatch Front’s Best Roofing Weather

In the northern hemisphere, the summer season officially begins on June 21st with the Summer Solstice and wraps up on September 21st, just in time for Fall Equinox. The beginning of summer will be the ideal time to have your home or office roof replaced. But you'll want to avoid mid to late summer when we see peak heat temperatures across Northern Utah averaging 93°F. The higher temperatures, peaking around July 23rd, can heat up and dry out adhesive or scuff shingles when walked on.

Southern Utah's Best Roofing Weather

Residents of Southern Utah average over 300 beautiful, sunny days annually. But with summertime temps ranging between 95°F - 101°F, the extreme heat can seriously affect your home's energy efficiency during your roof replacement, not to mention the effect high temperatures can have on roofing materials making them less durable during installation. With an average of about eight inches annually, the ideal roofing conditions for Southern Utah will be late spring and early summer, after early spring showers and before the peak of the summer season.

Weather Conditions to Avoid During Roof Replacement

In Salt Lake City and most of Northern Utah, weather conditions can vary wildly from season to season. While we may not have Mother Nature's full cooperation, Utahans can predict what seasons to avoid major home improvement projects. Unfavorable weather conditions like high winds and precipitation can make a roofing project quickly become a nightmare for the roofers and end up extending the entire project's completion date.

The best possible scenario to have your roof replaced is a day with cloud cover, but warm enough to be outdoors comfortably. Your roofing professional will help you schedule the optimal time for your home or business roof replacement to avoid the following weather hazards:

  • Extreme Heat
  • Frigid Cold
  • High Winds
  • Rain, Hail, Sleet, and Snow
