When you think about roof repairs, you probably think spring or summer – after the storms that usually seem to strike the Dallas area each year, right? While it is true that a lot of roofs are replaced during these seasons, did you know that you can replace your roof during the winter, too?
Why Would You Want to Replace A Roof in the Winter?
If you’re noticing leaks, sagging rooflines, damaged soffit or fascia or missing shingles now, you are not going to want to wait until warmer months to replace your roof. Nor should you; waiting could lead to costly damage to your home’s interior.
Can You Really Replace a Roof in the Winter?
Yes, you can. But, with a few considerations. First, you will want to hire a professional roofing company. Professional roofing companies know how to replace a roof in the winter and what factors to take into consideration to ensure the replacement is done correctly.
Second, you will need to know that while you can replace a roof in the winter, the project may be delayed until the weather reaches the ideal roofing temperature. Is that a thing? Yes, it is. The perfect temperature for putting on a new roof is between 40 degrees and 85 degrees Fahrenheit for asphalt shingles. Why? Because even high-quality asphalt shingles can crack or break when hammered in temperates that are too cold.
Replacing a roof in the winter likely also means that you will be able to schedule your project sooner than in other seasons, as the winter months are the off-season for the industry. This is a major plus for you, especially if you have noticed signs of damage or have experienced leaks.
