Can I Get A Roof Installation In Winter?

Can I Get A Roof Installation In Winter?

Although it might not occur to many people to get work done on your roof in winter, it is actually a good season to get a roof installation. Most people tend to have roof installations completed in spring and summer when it isn’t very cold out, but the truth is that roofing experts are experienced with roof installations at all times of the year and can perform a roof installation even when the weather isn’t ideal. Although there are some drawbacks to getting your roof installation in winter, there are also several benefits as well. Consider if winter is the right time of year for your roof installation.

Pros Of A Roof Replacement In Winter

  • More Available Roofing Professionals
    Winter isn’t the most popular time for roof installations, which means that roofing crews that might normally be booked well in advance are available. If you want your roof installation done in winter, you are likely to get service immediately.
  • Fix Problems Before They Get Worse
    You might not have noticed a problem with your roof until some severe winter weather hit. Maybe you can see that the snow is melting off of your roof and not your neighbours, indicating that your roof isn’t properly insulated. Or maybe the weight of the snow is causing your roof to sag. Whatever the reason, it’s common to not think of these potential problems until they become apparent, even in winter. A new roof installation now instead of waiting for spring or summer can prevent further damage to your home.
  • Less Risk Of Damage To Surrounding Areas
    Although roofers are very careful to not cause any damage to property while they perform a roof installation, it is something to consider. During spring and summer, you need to prepare for a roof installation by clearing the deck and yard of anything that can become damaged or that can become a hazard for the roofers, such as lawn furniture, moveable outdoor pools, kids' toys, and more. In the winter, most of these are already put away and other items that can’t be removed, such as a deck, are covered in snow. If something does happen to drop while work is being done on the roof, the snow will offer a cushion and help prevent any small nicks or dents. It also makes it easier to see if anything has fallen so that cleanup is easy and quick.

Cons Of A Roof Replacement In Winter

  • Brittle Shingles
    The cold does affect the structure of shingles and makes them more brittle and susceptible to damage. This might mean your roofers need to use more material than they would in the summer. Although they are experienced with working with cold shingles and should be able to avoid breakage, sometimes it is unavoidable.
  • Longer Process
    Because winter storms can come up out of nowhere, work will need to be paused if the weather is too dangerous for people to be on the roof. And if the weather is extremely cold, roofers will need to take frequent breaks to warm up. Extra time may also be needed for snow and ice removal before and during the roof installation process. This can lead to a longer roofing process overall, but it is highly dependent on the weather.
  • Sealant Effectiveness
    It is possible for the cold to affect how well the shingle sealant performs. Roofing sealant requires heat and pressure in order to form a proper bond. That being said, the warmth from the home can help the sealant bond, but it may be difficult if the roof installation takes place during a cold snap.
