Your roof, depending on the materials used, should last between a quarter to a little over a half a century. Of course, this is barring unexpected and severe storm damage, falling trees, and so on. The professionals at Atlanta Pro Roofing know that there definitely comes a time, whether expected or unexpected, when you must replace your roof lest you risk exposing the inside of your building to the elements. So, what happens when that time happens to be during the winter? Is it safe to replace the roof in winter? Should you wait a few months and replace the roof during the calm of spring?
This article brought to you by the roofing experts at Atlanta Pro Roofing will go over the pros and cons of replacing a roof in the wintertime. Feel free to call Atlanta Pro Roofing if you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like to schedule a flexible appointment.
The Drawbacks of a Wintertime Roof Replacement
With winter comes dropping temperatures. However, a winter in, say, New York is different from a winter in, say, Atlanta. So, we cannot simply say that the coldness of winter is bad for a roof replacement. Nevertheless, there are temperature limitations on roof work. In general, temperature above 40 and below 85 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal to install asphalt shingles. Under 40 degrees, shingles are prone to become brittle and crack. Nail guns are also known to jam more often in cold temperatures.
The next drawback of doing any roof work during the winter is the obvious slip-risk due to snow and ice on the roof. That means the roofer will have to wear specific safety gear and work methodically and carefully, likely increasing the amount of time it takes to get the job done. Consequently, you might end up paying more if your roofing professional charges by the hour.
Finally, there is the risk of snow or sleet falling during the job. Luckily meteorologists are pretty good at predicting whether it will snow, so you can plan accordingly. Still, there is the risk of snow covering a partially completed roof and devastating your building’s interior.
The Benefits of Replacing Your Roof During the Winter
Replacing your roof in the winter does have some unexpected benefits as well. Roofing professionals are generally more available during the winter. So, you should be able to flexibly schedule your appointment. Without other clients lined up, they will have clearer heads to focus on the job at hand.
Plus, there is the inherent benefit of getting a damaged roof replaced as soon as possible. If your roof is damaged during the winter, then getting the roof replaced quickly will protect you from the incoming elements of the winter.
