Don’t Wait to Schedule Your Roof Repair or Installation

Many consumers believe that waiting to schedule their roof installation or repair during the “slow season”  is the best way to ensure their project gets done quickly and affordably. Not true! With the recent housing boom and warmer winters, there are no “slow seasons”, sales and installation crews are busy year round, and pricing is the same no matter the season!

Waiting to schedule a roof install or repair can lead to problems and/or increased costs. If you have a leak or a roof that has reached the end of its life, you can experience damage to your home from a wind, rain, or snow 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. Most reputable companies are booked far in advance.

Here are just a few of the factors that could affect the timely scheduling of your project:


Though roofers tend to get busier in the spring, summer and fall, there is a steady stream of work waiting for us year round. We serve our customers on a first come first serve basis. This means that if there is high demand, you could be waiting weeks for your project to be scheduled. If you have a specific date or time frame in mind for your installation or are considering new construction, plan ahead and start the estimate process with plenty of lead time. If you’ve already pushed the envelope on a needed repair or worn-out roof, those extra weeks could cost you.


Maine winters can easily turn nasty. Though we are generally able to install metal roofs no matter how low the temperatures dip, deep snow and icy conditions can set our work schedule back. The same goes for your asphalt roof installation. Very low temperatures, deep snow, or ice can impact our schedule, as well as excessive rain, wind, or heat. The safety of our crews are our #1 priority so any conditions that can make being on a roof dangerous change the timeline of projects. 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 for workmanship, 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.
