Roofing in the winter?

We are often asked if a roofing job can be done in the colder winter months. Sometime roofing problems don’t wait for the warmer days of spring.

Most roofing manufacturers recommend temperatures above 40 degrees, for a number of reasons. Fiberglass shingles have a self adhesive strip that plays an important role in keeping the shingles in place, and creates an effective seal that guards against wind damage. When the temperature is too cold the adhesive isn’t as effective. Extremely cold weather also makes shingle brittle and prone to breaking, which leads to the need for more materials.

However, emergencies do occur, so sunny weather or not, if you need assistance before the warmer days arrive, don’t hesitate to call us! We are here to help!
