Many people tend to believe that residential roofing can only be done in summer weather but this is where many people go wrong. Contrary to popular belief, winter roofing is indeed a possibility it just requires an expert to get the task done right. If you need residential roofing done this time of the year, you will want to read on.
To start off, let’s address which materials will work exceptionally for your property during cold weather. If you don’t want additional expenses on your installation, then you might want to look into roofing systems such as metal and cedar shake. These type of roofing materials can be installed to your commercial or residential property with safety and precision, and never compromising quality even if it is cold outside.
Materials such as metal and cedar are not easily affected by temperature shifts. Other roofing materials that can be installed during cold weather include:
Asphalt- if you want to create a perfect seal for asphalt roofing, then the weather must be between 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. If installed in any warmer or colder weather, your asphalt shingles could become pliable and more susceptible to damage. Not to mention, that extremely cold weather or hot weather will cause the shingles to not seal and thus allowing for wind, rain, snow and other factors to seep in. Asphalt can be installed during cold weather, but it requires a lot of experience.
Single Ply Rubber Membrane- this material is actually a lot more sensitive to the temperature than say, asphalt. Professionals recommend that this type of roofing material is installed in 45 degree weather. However, there are forms to install his during winter-but doing so may add to the overall cost.
