Weather changes with the seasons, and so can many home industry businesses. Roofers are busiest in the late summer and early fall, preparing for the winter months ahead. At the same time, other industries seem to have peaks of productivity throughout the year depending on everything from weather to the economony.

The home industry is greatly affected by the time of year. If an area sees extreme temperatures, certain construction projects like pouring concrete can be put on hold. Even in areas where the weather remains mild throughout the year, different seasonal changes can change business, like holidays or tax season.
