Winter roofing is counterintuitive to many homeowners. After all, who would willingly expose their property and themselves to potential risks during the harsh winter months? However, at Hadley Roofing, we’re here to challenge the perception that winter roofing is absurd and impractical. There are surprising advantages to scheduling your roofing project during the colder season.
Avoiding the Queue:
One notable advantage of winter roofing is the reduced demand for roofing services. Unlike the peak seasons, you won’t find yourself waiting in line for a roofing contractor. With fewer neighbors opting for roof work in winter, you can get prompt attention from professionals like us at Hadley Roofing. Of course, regional variations apply, as some contractors do report increased activity during winter months, but the overall trend favors faster service.
Winter is not just a season for festivities but also when roofing contractors often spread the Christmas cheer through significant discounts. Homeowners looking to undertake roofing projects during the winter can benefit from these cost-saving opportunities. This aligns perfectly with the holiday spirit and provides an excellent chance to address roofing needs without breaking the bank.
Material Cost Savings:
Beyond contractor discounts, winter is a season of discounts in hardware stores and among roofing material manufacturers. This presents an ideal opportunity for homeowners to invest in roofing materials at lower costs. If you’ve been eyeing a new roof since the summer, now is the time to turn those plans into reality.
Considerations and Drawbacks:
While winter roofing presents several advantages, it’s essential to be mindful of certain limitations. Not all roofing materials are suitable for installation in colder temperatures. For instance, materials requiring glues and adhesives, such as rubber roofs and modified bitumen, are not recommended due to the risk of freezing and compromised adhesion.
However, roofing options like PVC and metal roofs, which rely on screws and plates for attachment, are well-suited for winter installations. Shingles, on the other hand, can be a topic of debate among roofing contractors, with varying opinions on their winter applicability. To determine the feasibility of shingle installation during winter, call us directly.
If winter roofing seems daunting, Hadley Roofing is here to reassure you that there is still time to address your roofing needs. With professional expertise and a commitment to quality service, our team is ready to ensure your roof is in optimal condition for the season. Embrace the winter advantage and entrust your roofing project to Hadley Roofing for a seamless and efficient experience.
