One of the most common questions we hear is, “Can I hire a roofing company in the winter?”
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.
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 hire a roofing company in the winter, there are a few things to take into consideration:
- Shingle installation is best 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. They will need to 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 the installation of a metal roof. The metal will contract if installed during freezing temperatures. When it expands again, the metal can warble and look bad.
Hire A Roofing Company with Experience in Winter Roofing
Even under the best conditions, roofing can be dangerous. Add ice, snow, and cold temperatures to the mix, and it can be a recipe for disaster for the inexperienced. Before hiring a roofing company in the winter, make sure they have plenty of winter roofing experience, like the team at Muth & Company, and are willing to follow the proper procedures.
If you have a leaky roof or other damage that needs taken care of, don’t put it off just because it’s winter. Get in touch with Muth & Company for a free consultation. We can advise you on the severity of the problem and help you resolve it before it gets worse.
