Replacing Your Roof In Winter
Can You Do It?
Winter months can be especially hard on a roof. Frigid temperatures can wreak havoc on your shingles. But on top of that, you also have freezing rain and snow that can create ice dams and leaks. The added weight of snow can buckle and collapse the support system underneath your roof. And in many cases, waiting for warmer weather to replace your roof just isn’t an option. Replacing your roof in winter can be done under certain conditions.
Is It Strong Enough?
Your roof has to have enough of a sound structure to be able to support a new roof. The existing support may need to be built up before this can happen. If you are switching to heavier, more durable materials, you will want to make sure that structure can handle this added weight.
