Did You Know You Can Get a Roof Replacement In The Winter?

You Don't Need to Wait for Spring

Homeowners often scramble to get their roof replacement project finished before winter starts or they will wait until spring. The problem is, certain weather events may dictate the need for immediate roof replacement, especially if a large amount of snow or ice could create significant damage, leaving your home vulnerable.

Even if you don’t have an immediate need, you can still have your roof replaced during the winter safely and comfortably and maybe save some money, too. Here’s what you need to know about getting a roof replacement in the winter.

Benefits Of A Winter Roof Replacement

Take Advantage of Winter’s Lower Prices - Winter is typically the slowest time of year for even the best residential roofing contractors. Homeowners can benefit from this since many contractors will offer reduced rates or discounts to keep their staff employed. Of course, shop around for the best price, but be aware of any residential roofing contractor that doesn’t have a lot of experience or offers an estimate much lower than the other quotes.

Experienced Roofers will Work Around the Weather - Homeowners are usually concerned with how uncomfortable their living situation will be while getting their roof replaced, especially during the winter. While there may be some inconveniences, the best residential roofing contractor will consider your living space and reduce the inconveniences as much as possible. Plus, they will likely have fewer projects during the winter giving them the opportunity to complete yours much more quickly than during the rest of the year. And if there is a situation where a winter weather storm is coming during the roofing project, they will take the necessary precautions to ensure your home stays as safe and secure as possible.

Be Prepared for the Next Big Storm - Another great benefit of having your roof replaced in the winter is you never know when the next winter storm will come. When you have your roof fixed as soon as possible, you’ll eliminate potential problems that could arise with a snow or ice storm, including leaks that may cause even more damage to your home. If your roof has problem areas that need to be addressed immediately, but the weather conditions aren’t ideal for replacing the roof completely, then a roofing contractor can repair those areas to ensure problems don’t get any worse.

Challenges A Residential Roofing Contractor May Experience

Although it’s possible to do a complete roof installation during the winter, some challenges may arise that the best residential roofing contractor will have to overcome.

Consider the Roof Type - A roof installation is difficult if your roof has a steep slope since it creates an unsafe environment for contractors on snowy or icy winter days. Start the process of searching for a roof replacement contractor as early as possible and get their thoughts on when the right time is to begin the project. They should take the type of roof you have into consideration.

Consider Local Weather Conditions - Another factor to consider is that some types of roofs will contract or expand more during extreme winter temperatures, making it more difficult to replace. Be sure your roofing contractor is familiar with the expected local weather conditions before making a suggestion or recommendation on timing.

Hire A Trustworthy Roof Installation Expert

When you hire a reputable roof installation expert, you can have peace of mind knowing they’ll make the best decision possible. A residential roofing contractor that claims they can install a roof in any temperature and the most extreme weather conditions may not necessarily be trustworthy. They should provide you with realistic expectations and give you confidence that they will use the proper techniques and protocols to ensure the roof replacement project is as successful in the winter as it would be at other times of the year.
