The Challenges of Winter Roof Replacement
If you find yourself in the unenviable position of having to replace a roof in the winter, there are some things you should be aware of. Winter roof replacement carries its own unique challenges. It is best performed by a company like KHR Home Remodeling. We have the necessary experience required to complete this difficult install.
Three Challenges of Winter Roof Replacement
For starters, roofing demands the use of tools that can be affected by cold temperatures. If an air compressor begins to develop moisture in the air lines, that moisture could freeze and reduce the effectiveness of the equipment. This could mean that nails aren’t attached properly to the roof.
Another concern involves shingles. There are specific procedures and techniques that must be used when installing shingles in winter. The primary issue is that shingles are prone to become brittle when it gets cold, and this could mean that they do not tab properly when being installed.
It is also a challenge to find roofing crews that are willing to brave the elements in winter. Laying shingles isn’t exactly installing window treatments where you have some protection from the elements. Being on a roof with the cold wind blowing or the presence of ice and snow is a morale killer. You should only work with companies that have experience in this area because those that do not could be more prone to take shortcuts and do an ineffective job.
Sometimes a roofing job will not wait until the temperatures warm up. You should take the time to speak with your contractor about their experience with winter roof replacement. KHR Home Restoration has performed many quality roofing jobs in winter. We understand all of the complexities that this work carries, and we won’t disappoint you.
