Is it cheaper to get a roof in the winter?

Jan 15


There are many benefits to roofing in winter. One is that homeowners have the option to choose from any roofing company they wish to use since most companies aren't too busy at this time of year. Manufacturers do not alter their warranties due to temperature when installing asphalt composite roofing shingles. They provide the exact same warranty as roofs installed at other times of the year.


New shingles must be thermally sealed. This can take up to several days or even weeks at temperatures 40 degrees Fahrenheit and higher. The winter months will bring down the cost of roofing materials.

If your roof needs to be replaced, look for these red flags.

After noticing a leak in their roof, most homeowners decide they need a replacement roof. There could be many reasons for the leak. What factors determine if a roof repair is sufficient to fix the problem, or if the roof needs to be replaced? These are some tips of roof replacement professionals that will help you decide if you require a new roof.

Roof age

What is the age of your asphalt shingle roof? Experts agree that the average roof should last between 20-25 years. It depends on how old the roof is, if there is only one layer of shingles and if it has been properly ventilated. You may need to replace your roof if the roof was installed on top of another layer, or multiple layers, and is more than 20 years old.

Shingles curling, buckling

A sign you might need a new roof is a curled or buckling shingle. If you notice shingles curling or losing granules on the slopes of your house that receive direct sunlight, this could indicate that the roof is past its life expectancy. It is possible that your roof may be defective. To see if you are eligible for reimbursement, contact the best roofing company. 

Roof valleys

It's obvious that your roof shingles are deteriorating or becoming missing in this area. Your roof's most important area is the valleys. Rain and snow flow through valleys to the gutters. Roof leaks can occur if the valley is damaged.

You are missing shingles

These are signs that your roof may be in danger. You should check to make sure all the tabs are still intact. After a storm, this homeowner noticed that some of the shingles were missing and decided to replace them. 

Chimney flashing

Another area to consider is the flashing. This is another area to consider.

Shingle granules for gutters

Check your gutters for shingle granules. Roofs lose more granules towards the end of their lifespan. Another sign that the granules are worn is the inconsistency or darker color of certain parts of the roof.

Daylight can be seen through the roof boards

The underlying decking may be weakened by moisture if you notice a trampoline bounce or spongy feeling when you walk on it. To check if daylight is coming through the roof boards, go to your attic. You should also check for moisture in your insulation.
