Embarking on a roofing project comes with its own set of considerations, and one common question that homeowners often have is, “Is it safe to install shingles in the winter?” In this blog post, we aim to shed light on the nuances of roofing in different seasons, acknowledging the challenges while assuring you of your comprehensive warranty coverage.
Cold Weather Installation: Myth vs. Reality
The concern about installing shingles in cold temperatures is a common one. The truth is, yes, shingles can be installed in cold weather. Manufacturers provide cold weather specifications on their websites, and our team is well-equipped to handle installations in various conditions.
While it’s true that shingles may take a bit longer to seal in colder temperatures, they will still seal. Shingles need heat and/or direct sunlight to seal. If you’ve ever gone outside on a sunny winter day then you know the sun is strong even when it’s cold out. If it’s exceptionally cold, or cloudy, your shingles are still properly protecting you home by shedding water and directing it away from your home. In the rare event that high winds occur before your new shingles are fully sealed, rest assured that your warranty fully covers you and protects you from any potential issues.
Seasonal Challenges: Acknowledging the Reality
Every season brings its own set of challenges, and it’s essential to acknowledge and plan for them. Here’s a glimpse into what you might encounter during different seasons:
Spring may bring rain, wind, mud, and logistical hurdles due to weight limits on roads. Despite these challenges, our team is well-prepared to navigate through them, ensuring the smooth progress of your roofing project.
The summer heat can be intense, posing potential health risks for installers. The surface temperature of roof with dark colored asphalt shingles on a 90 degree day can be 140 degrees or higher. Additionally, shingles may soften due to heat, leading to unsightly scuff marks from installers during the installation. Our experienced team takes necessary precautions to work safely in the summer heat, minimizing any impact on the quality of the installation.
Fall is a season of unpredictability, with a mix of various weather conditions. However, our adaptable approach and preparedness allow us to tackle any challenges that may arise during your roofing project in the fall.
