Extreme Temperatures Require Roof Professional Assessment:
Weather fluctuations can be very harmful to your roof. Roofing materials contract and expand with temperatures. Deeper issues can arise causing waste of resources unless you take care of your roof. That is why we highly recommend roof professional assessment.
Cold Winters Mean More Potential Damage:
Roof replacement depends on variety of factors. Deep and cold winter in your region can result in blow offs and sealing issues. That will make it a really tough winter for those living inside the home.
From a professional contractor’s perspective, harsher conditions also mean a riskier workplace. It also means extra effort put in for quality work. In addition, below freezing temperatures tend to have a knack for increasing chances of failures when installing new roofs. It would require extra time. Some cases extra materials as well.
Our advice to our readers and homeowners is simple. Have roof professional assessment done today. Once you decide to go ahead with repairs/replacement, visit the manufacturer’s website for the material being used. Be sure to check out all the installation information there. If the manufacturer suggests that said it would be okay as long as the product is installed a certain way, ask your contractor. Remember this. When in doubt, check with the manufacturer. Also talk to your contractor.
