The best season to complete a roofing project changes, depending on where you reside; in Tulsa, Fall is the best time of year to see to all your roofing needs. We explain why below.

From March to May is when Tulsa’s tornado season takes place. The area is considered a high-risk area for these severe weather storms. On average, Tulsa experiences about three large tornadoes every year. Therefore, replacing your roofing system in the spring can be quite tricky. Most Tulsa homeowners are forced to replace their roofing systems due to damages suffered from passing tornadoes.
During the Tulsa summer, temperatures can reach as high as 100°F but usually average around the 90°F mark. While roof replacements are possible and common during the Tulsa summer, it is recommended that roofers start their projects as early as possible to avoid working in the scorching sun.
Fall is by far the best season to complete any roofing work. The temperatures are fairly moderate, creating stable conditions for your roofer to work in.
