Akron, Ohio -

TK Roofing & Gutters, a roofing contractor serving customers in Northeast Ohio, has published a blog post discussing whether homeowners should get their roofs replaced during the winter.

The winter season brings many challenges that roofs have to withstand such as low temperatures, snowfall, and harsh winds. At such a time, leaks or fallen tree branches can lead to serious problems that need to be resolved quickly. Depending on the extent of the damage, a roof repair might suffice while, in some cases, a complete roof replacement is recommended. However, there are many opinions out there on whether replacing a roof in the winter is a wise decision. TK Roofing & Gutters’ latest blog post answers this question with detailed explanations of its pros and cons.

Replacing a roof during the winter can be challenging for several reasons. First, the cold temperatures make roofing materials like asphalt shingles and adhesives brittle and difficult to work with. This makes the installation process more difficult and time-consuming. Worker safety is also jeopardized as, apart from the need to stay warm and comfortable while doing the job, high-speed winds make it difficult to keep the work area safe and cause scaffolding and other equipment to become unstable.

As the vegetation sheds away during the winter, tree limbs become susceptible to breaking due to winter storms and ice causing excessive roof damage and making the installation unsafe. The limbs can also cause damage to new shingles and potentially injure the roofers. Finally, inclement weather during the winter season can lead to several scheduling delays as some days are just not safe for roofing.

“Though there are several risks associated with reroofing in the winter,” says the spokesperson for TK Roofing & Gutters, “there are also some advantages that you ought to consider. For example, one of the biggest advantages of replacing a roof in the winter is that there is no risk of a roof leak during the tear-off process. As rain is less likely, the old roof can be removed safely and efficiently without the fear of water damage.”

The blog post from TK Roofing & Gutters also points out that labor and material warranties are not season-specific giving homeowners the same protection and peace of mind regardless of when they choose to get their roof replaced. Getting a roof replacement in the winter also allows homeowners to get the task off their bucket list and frees up their summer for enjoying the weather and spending time with their loved ones outside.

Scheduling a roof replacement in the winter can also be cost-effective. As many contractors are underbooked for the winter, they might be able to accommodate homeowners during the season at a lower cost than the busy summer months. Finally, while the cold weather has its risks, it may also be better for roofers to tackle roof replacements in the winter as summers can cause heat strokes and other heat-related illnesses, especially if working on certain roofing materials such as metal.

“Whether you are planning a roof replacement soon or need immediate help due to storm, wind, or hail damage,” says the spokesperson, “TK Roofing & Gutters is ready to help you regardless of what time of year it is. Our experienced roofers are fully licensed, bonded, and insured and can take on any roofing challenge you throw at them.
