As much as we all would like to pick the perfect time and season for roof repair, sometimes issues arise that have to be addressed immediately, even if it’s the dead of winter. Fortunately, with an experienced roofing contractor like Muth & Company Roofing, roofing installation and repair can often be performed successfully, even in cold weather.
Important Things to Know About Winter Roofing
Before you decide to do a winter roofing project, there are a few things you should take into consideration:
- Shingle installation is best completed at temperatures above 40℉. Cracking and damage can occur when temperatures fall lower. If you want a shingle roof installed during winter, the roofing experts you hire must handle shingles very carefully, work efficiently and follow best practices to decrease the chance of this occurring.
- Winter roofing projects often take longer because crews sometimes have to wait until temperatures are above freezing for the sealing process to be completed.
- Metal roofing materials are also subject to temperature variations. If the temperature is around freezing, we will delay installation of a metal roof because the metal will contract if installed during freezing temperatures. When it expands again, the metal can warble and look bad.
