Can You Roof a House in Winter?

Posted on

In short, yes, Salem roofers can roof a house in the winter, but they are at the weather’s mercy.

Slate & Slate Roofing is a year-round Salem roofing company, which means, yes. Homes and businesses can be roofed in the winter months. The problem is never the temperature; our expert Salem roofers can bundle up to beat the cold. The problem is moisture. We do our best to protect our customers’ homes from damage as part of our mission to put our customers first. With that said, we will schedule and re-schedule jobs due to rain or high likelihood of rain before we could get your roof watertight.

Breakage in asphalt shingles can occur in extremely cold environments, but fortunately, Oregon seldom gets cold enough for that to be a concern. What we are getting at with this post is that, yes, the winter months are harder to schedule roof repair or roof replacement in Salem due to rain and general moisture, but it can still be done. Rather than being concerned about it yourself, it is best to give Slate & Slate Roofing a call, get a free roofing estimate, and get your job on the schedule books as quickly as possible if you are in need of roofing work. This will ensure that your roof is fixed up as quickly as possible. This allows you to defer to our decades of experience in determining when the right time to do your roofing project is.

If your roof is in need of repair or replacement, give us a call today at (503) 585-2338, or reach out on our estimate form to the right side of this page.
