The storm season, or rather the days and weeks after its immediate conclusion, is the busiest time of year for most roofing companies. The days that follow right after a storm passes through bring plenty of business to roofers, and the amount may even become too much for them to handle in certain situations. As an Oklahoma roofer told Fox23.com last July, following storms that ripped through Tulsa:
“We still have well over a hundred, probably more than that, jobs that we haven’t even been able to go to yet, just because of the range and the number of calls.”
Every industry has its own peak season, and it should come as no surprise that this particular period arrives for roofing companies right around the storm months. Strong storms are more than likely to leave some form of damage on roofs, and the need to repair them is nearly always immediate, thus bringing about the spike in business. However, homeowners, whether in Oklahoma or North and South Carolina, would be wise to call in roofers before the peak season. The reasons to do so involve more than just timing.
First, the best roofers are likely to be booked heavily during the season, so placing a call early on means that a homeowner can get excellent roofers in Greensboro, NC, like those from ABC Roofing, who are still capable of doing high-quality work. When they are not yet swamped with service requests, roofers would be able to focus better on their customers’ concerns.
Second, it is wise to get roofing work done early in order to avoid timing issues that may emerge. By putting off work that needs to be done up until the last minute, homeowners might no longer find any good Greensboro roofers available. In fact, none of them might be ready to take an order, thus leaving a potential customer with a hole over their head and the possibility of getting their properties drenched in the rain. Getting roofing work done early is ideal, as it may save a homeowner from higher bills and shoddy service, not to mention illnesses and a damaged house.
