Why is warm weather good for a replacement roof in Wisconsin
Many Wisconsin homeowners know that installing a replacement roof in warmer weather is ideal. While it is still possible for a roofing company to work during the winter; it is much better for a Wisconsin home’s roof to be replaced in the warmer months. Here’s why.
The first reason that the warm weather is better for a replacement roof is that it allows workers to be more comfortable when they are working. If they have to install a roof in the winter, dealing with the cold and snow can make it more difficult for them. On the other hand, having too hot of days in peak summer can also make work difficult as it becomes difficult to work in the immense heat radiating from the sun and off the roof. A nice neutral and warm day with little to no rain or humidity is an ideal temperature for roofers to work at their best.
Another reason the warm weather is the best time to replace your roof is that it helps the shingle application process. During the warm summer days, sunlight and heat helps make the asphalt shingles stick and activate the adhesive substance on the back of the shingle to the roof to help prevent future problems from occurring during this process. By having that warm weather you can then be more efficient with your work and with the longer daylight can get more roofs done within a shorter period of time.
