Between heavy snow, ice buildups, and frigid temperatures, winter can be tough on roofs. For many homeowners, the warmer seasons are the most popular times to take care of roof maintenance, repairs, and replacements. However, choosing to undertake work on your roof during the winter can have benefits.
Here are a few things to consider about replacing your roof in winter.
Waiting for warmer weather can worsen existing problems
Have you noticed curling or cracked shingles? Are there icicles hanging from your house? Corrupted shingles can let moisture penetrate your roof, and ice buildups can be a sign that your home is losing heat. Whatever the issue, waiting until spring means taking the risk that the situation will deteriorate.
A new roof means better defense from the elements
A roof on its last legs is less able to stand up to harsh weather. Undertaking a roof replacement can give you peace of mind and give you the certainty that your new, sturdy roof will handle the demands of winter.
Enjoy favorable, seasonal pricing
For many roofers, winter is an off-peak season. Securing a quote and scheduling springtime work – whether routine repairs or a full roof replacement – a few months early can ultimately save you time and money.
Get a new roof faster
Fall and spring are, naturally, the most popular times to replace a roof, so if you schedule your roof replacement in winter, you’ll likely get a faster turnaround on your new roof.
Be ready for spring rains & home selling season
Replacing your roof in the cold season gets you ready for those spring showers and for spring showings, if you’re thinking of selling.
