Scheduling Your Roof Repair or Installation: The Sooner the Better

Many consumers believe that timing their roof installation or repair during slow seasons is the best way to ensure their project gets done quickly and affordably. However, waiting to schedule an install or repair can lead to numerous problems. If you have a leak or a roof that has reached the end of its life, you can experience damage to your home from an unexpected storm.

You could also find that when you finally do try to schedule your project, your Maine roofer will be swamped with projects and unable to get to yours in a timely manner. Here are just a few of the factors that could delay your project:

Factors That Impact Scheduling


Though we tend to get busier in the spring and fall seasons, we find that a steady stream of work is always waiting for us. Unless the situation is an emergency, we always serve our customers on a first come first serve basis. This means that if there is high demand, your project could be put on hold for weeks. If you’ve already pushed the envelope on a needed repair or worn-out roof, those extra weeks could really cost you.


Northeast winters can easily turn nasty. Though we are generally able to install metal roofs no matter how low the temperatures dip, a blizzard can easily set our work schedule back. If your project involves an asphalt roof, we generally cannot install them if the temps are below 40 degrees. Excessive rain, wind, or heat can also impact our work schedule. Maine weather can be unpredictable, and there is simply no way to know when a storm or other weather conditions will prevent us from completing projects.


At Horch roofing, we are committed to getting the job done right. This means we do not cut corners or sacrifice quality to get a job done faster. While this adherence to quality and customer service has helped us develop a strong reputation, it also adds time to our projects. We will not rush a job to move on to a new project and will always stay on a roof until we know we’ve done the job right.

What does this mean to you? It means that you should never wait to schedule your commercial or residential roof replacement or repair. The best time to schedule your project is when you first realize it needs to be done. When you work with a reputable roofer in Maine, you won’t have to worry about timing the project to get the best price or customer service.
