We often receive questions about winter roof installation. While most people don’t plan to replace their roof in the winter, circumstances sometimes make it necessary. SKYYGUARD works year-round to help Colorado home and business owners with roof repairs, inspections and installations.
Winters in the Denver area can be harsh. Yet, with over 300 days of sunshine, many winter days are surprisingly pleasant. We try to take advantage of the weather to meet roof installation demands during the winter months.
The Challenge with Winter Roof Installation
Roof installation in the winter does come with weather constraints. Asphalt shingles and other roofing materials can turn brittle causing them to prematurely crack if you install a roof when the temperature is less than 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Adhesives are also likely to fail causing improper seals. With adhesives failing to stick, the roof is likely to not fully adhere decreasing the watertight integrity.
Because of these challenges, you need an experienced roofing company on your side. At SKYYGUARD, we have the knowledge and experience to provide quality roof installation. We will not install a roof unless we can ensure the integrity of the finished roof.
When to Replace a Roof in the Winter
We do understand that not all roof installations can wait until spring. In these cases, we monitor the weather and temperature to determine the best time to work.
- Extensive Damage – For extremely damaged roofs, repairs may not work
- Contingent for Home Sale – We work with the homeowner to determine the best option to meet all parties’ needs
- New Construction – To keep new construction projects on schedule, roof installation is sometimes essential
Winter Roof Installation Denver
In cold winter climates, like Denver, roofing is more difficult in the winter. There are more risks and challenges for winter roofing projects.
- Dangerous for roofers due to icy conditions
- Takes longer to complete the project
- Problems with roofing material integrity
- Weather delays
However, you should not ignore roof problems during the winter. Issues like ice dams or leaks can become worse and lead to even more damage. Work with your experienced roofing company to collaborate on the best solution for your roof.
For example, repairs may work to carry you through to warmer months. Also, repairs may solve the problem without needing a full roof replacement.
It’s never wise to work with an untrained roofer, but during winter months be very wary of bids that seem too good to be true. Incorrect repairs or installation will cost you more in the long run!
