Things can get a little rough here in Calgary when winter comes around. Because winter weather is no joke anywhere in Alberta, many homeowners mistakenly think they will have to wait to do any work on their roof until winter passes.
However, suppose you need to replace your roof. In that case, you won’t want to wait — especially since a roof needing replacement can be vulnerable to damage and could potentially render your home unsafe in harsh winter conditions. Fortunately, replacing your roof can be done during the winter season.
If you need to replace your roof and it is winter, you may be able to do some preparatory work, such as removing old shingles or repairing any damaged areas.
This will ensure that the roofers can work safely and effectively, and that the new roof will be installed properly.
Replacing Your Roof in the Winter
Winter season isn’t just a snowstorm which lasts for months. There are days where it’s sunny out, and these days are perfect for having work done on your roof. You just need to make sure you hire a roofer who’s experienced and takes safety seriously. It can be dangerous going up on the roof, especially when there are ice and snow present. Our roofers are highly trained and experienced, which means they will be able to do work on your roof during the winter. In fact, we have been doing roof work in Calgary during the winter months for over three decades!
It’s also worth noting that if your roof does need replacement, it’s rarely because the whole thing was torn off at once. We can work on your roof in sections, which means we can address only the parts of your roof which need work done immediately. If one day is sunny and the next day isn’t, we can do work on a sunny day and wait out the snowy day.
Winter Is The Slow Season
As you can see, having your roof replaced during the winter is entirely possible. Of course, you may only choose to have your roof replaced in the winter if it’s necessary. However, it’s worth noting that roof work tends to be more affordable during the winter season. Winters are the slow season for roofing companies. Because of the lack of demand, roofing companies may be willing to provide a discount.
If you have issues with your roof, don’t hesitate to contact us at Hubbard Roofing & Exteriors. Roofing companies may offer a discount on a winter installation due to the slower season, so be sure to ask. If you still prefer a fair-weather install, book your free roof inspection in the coming month to secure a spring install date.
