Even the most sturdy and resilient roofs are put to the test during winter. Between the low temperatures and the harsh weather, even something as unassuming as compact snow can have a negative impact on your roof.
All of your roofing projects should be done before winter starts, but what happens when you need to have roof replacement in the middle of the season? In this post, Barnett Roofing explains why it’s safe and even more advantageous to replace the roof in winter.
You Address Existing Concerns
Most homeowners put off working on their roof during winter because the season is a “riskier” time, unaware that it actually puts the roof at even more risk. A roof that’s suffering from leaks and water damage is more susceptible to winter’s conditions and will end up requiring additional work.
Replacing your roof as soon as possible allows you to address existing concerns when these are still small and easier to handle, and secures your home from snow and hail.
Easy to Schedule
Winter is a slow season for roofing contractors and they are more likely to offer off-season discounts to attract the few that are willing to work during winter. This can benefit you, especially if you want to stretch your budget. It’s also easier to schedule at your preferred date and time since there’s no wait.
Finally, working on the roof during winter is actually faster. On top of being able to schedule at an earlier date, you’ll also be working with a company that quickly accommodate your requests. On top of that, the cooler weather is easier to handle than a hot summer day, so the people working on the roof may finish the replacement sooner.
