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

Sarah Kessler
January 15, 2024

If you’re a homeowner or business owner in Maryland, deciding when to replace or repair your roof can be a major decision.

Even though a good roof can (and should) last decades, if you own a home or property long enough, you’ll likely need to repair the roof or replace it entirely.

Deciding exactly when you should replace your roof is a vital part of the process. It can affect the total cost of your roof repair or replacement, as well as the time it takes to complete the project.

Below, we’ll let you know the pros and cons of replacing your roof during each season and everything else you need to know about the best time of year to replace your roof. This will help you choose the right time to replace your own Maryland roof.

For more guidance on when you should repair or replace your roof during the year, contact Capitol Improvements for a free quote or call (301) 769-6909.

What’s the Busiest Season for Roof Replacement?

Maryland, Washington, D.C., and the surrounding areas have a unique climate that impacts when you should replace your roof. For that reason, some seasons are more in-demand for roof replacements and repairs in Maryland.

Below, we’ll let you know which seasons are the busiest for roof replacement, which is the slowest, and the pros and cons for each season.

Winter Roof Replacement (Very Slow)

  • A slower season means potentially lower roof replacement prices and higher appointment availability.


  • Extreme cold temperatures can damage roofing materials.
  • Some roofing materials, like shingles, can only be installed at temperatures above 40 degrees.
  • The installation process can be interrupted by inclement weather, leading to slower progress.

Winter is the slowest season for roof replacements, especially in climates like Maryland and the East Coast as a whole.

However, keep in mind that replacing a roof during poor weather is better than leaving damage to persist throughout the winter if it’s an immediate issue.

Replacing your roof during the winter can be difficult, but it’s not always impossible. If there’s a window of good weather and temperatures above 40 degrees, you might be able to have your roof replaced.

A benefit of choosing winter for your roof replacement is that it’s a slow season, so you could pay lower prices and experience more availability in scheduling.

Spring Roof Replacement (Fairly Busy)


  • Clearer weather means less potential damage to roofing materials.
  • More comfortable temperatures mean more comfortable workers, which means the process can go faster.
  • Spring is still less busy than fall, making scheduling easier.

Spring is a great time to replace your roof, especially if you are looking for a real estate agent in Annapolis or elsewhere to sell your home.


  • Weather in the spring is still somewhat unpredictable, and rain showers can delay the work.
  • Waiting until spring to replace your roof if it’s in need can cause greater damage to your property.
  • Spring could have potentially higher prices for roof replacement since more people are interested in replacing their roofs.

Replacing a roof in spring is easier than doing so during winter. However, spring rain showers, tornadoes, and even hurricanes can still delay roof work. If there is roof damage caused from a storm, insurance may pay for your roof replacement.

Additionally, if you’re waiting through the winter to replace your roof in spring, you could face worse damage to your property.

Spring is also a busier season for roof replacement, which can translate to more difficult scheduling and potentially higher prices.

The good news is that the temperate weather of spring means you won’t need to worry about extreme temperatures damaging or weakening the new roofing materials.

Summer Roof Replacement (Variable)


  • Clear skies mean rain, snow, and sleet won’t be an issue.
  • Still not the busiest season for roof replacement, so scheduling may be easier.


  • Hot temperatures can damage new roofing materials.
  • The heat also means roofers need more breaks, making the process slightly slower.

You may think summer would be the busiest season for roof replacement, with warm temperatures and clear skies. However, summer isn’t the best season for replacing a roof because high temperatures can weaken new roofing materials.

Booking in early summer or late spring can help avoid this problem, so consider scheduling your roof replacement for May or June. This has the added benefit of still being relatively slow. That means prices could still be relatively lower, and scheduling could be easier to manage.

Fall Roof Replacement (Very Busy)

  • Predictable and relatively clear weather.
  • Temperatures are perfect for installing and replacing roofs.


  • Fall is the busiest time of year for roof replacement, so scheduling could be more difficult.
  • Prices can be higher due to high demand.
  • The occasional storm can delay roof work.

Fall is the best and busiest time of the year to replace a roof in Maryland. Aside from the occasional storm, fall weather provides the perfect conditions for roof work and construction.

Because it’s the best time of year to perform roof installations or replacements, you can expect it to be more difficult to schedule your roof work. The high demand for roof replacement work also means prices could be higher during this time. We have financing options to help with the cost.
