When Is The Best Time Of Year To Replace My Roof?


As we head into the unpredictable winter months here in Kansas City, some home owners find themselves in a bit of a dilemma, and are asking themselves, “Is this really a good time to replace my roof?”. Whether it is damage from the 2017 hail storms, or wear and tear from the test of time—there are still many roofs across Kansas City that are in need of replacing before winter hits.

If you think that your home may have been one of the thousands of damaged homes from this year’s hail storms, be sure to read our post on The Most Important Thing You Can Do To Protect your Home This Winter

So, Should I Replace My Roof In The Winter?

Replacing a roof during the winter can present several complications. Nail guns and compressors used by the roofer can be affected by colder temperatures. Further, if the temperatures are low enough, then shingles may not adhere to each other properly. This is because shingles have a self-sealing adhesive underneath, to secure the layers together. This adhesive only activates at certain temperatures. Knowing these things about winter roof replacement can make all the difference, that is why it is important to work with a local and trusted contractor who can answer all of your questions and concerns about your new roof project.

If you are looking at replacing your roof, and unsure if you can make it happen before the snow arrives, give us a call at (816) 436-2050 to discuss your project and options. The good thing to keep in mind is that although our winters here in KC are a bit unpredictable, we are often afforded breaks in the weather that allow us to perform new roof installs even in the winter months.

Spring really is an ideal time to have your roof replaced. You can avoid the possible pitfalls of low temperatures messing with shingle adhesive and roofing tools. You can also avoid the possible complications of Kansas City’s extreme temperatures and humidity of summer, including torn shingles and damage to granular coating. This is why we recommend, when possible, to have your roof replaced in the spring or fall months. However, when necessary, we can assess the weather and perform new roof installs throughout the year by taking careful precautions.
