If your roof is leaking or damaged, don’t try to get through the winter and wait until spring to fix it. Even if you have minor problems like small holes or minor leaks, winter can make them much worse. A major snowstorm can add weight that can cause structural problems and led to bigger leaks. You can also get ice dams if the temperature rises above freezing long enough for the snow to melt.
Fall is considered by many people to be the best time of year to replace a roof. The weather is still comfortable, which makes the roofers’ job easier. A roofing team may be able to finish your roof replacement job in a single day.
Fall weather is also helpful for the roofing materials. When shingles are installed, they need time to seal and form an airtight barrier that can withstand harsh weather. If you replace your roof in the fall, the shingles will have time to form a barrier before the first snowstorm of the season arrives.
If your roof needs to be replaced, don’t try to wait until spring and hope for the best. Roofing problems will only be magnified by the weight of snow and ice. A small leak will be much worse in the winter.
