Snow & Ice is hard on aging roof
They design roofs to handle a certain amount of snow, and winter storms might take toll of an aging roof. Old roofing will break because of heavy ice buildup resulting from flashing and tie-ins if your roof shingles are already crumbling.
It can correct simple damage before winter to stop the invisible damage from getting worse. The icicles formation along the roofline causes the snow to build up behind them and find its way underneath the shingles. The attic heat causes the snow to melt dripping into your home to cause more damage.
Still, water gets into the jagged edges of worn-out shingles which expands when it freezes again, widening the tear thus recommended to have them med before the cold months hit.
Spring Has Better Weather
The perfect temperature for roofing is above 45 degrees, providing enough time for shingles to adhere to your roof for good thermal sealing. Re-roofing in the fall that makes sure you have a few months before it gets too cold.
Applying your shingles at the perfect temperature, you will create airtight barriers against winter’s rain and snow.
You’ll save on winter heating
Fresh roofing materials are more energy-efficient by keeping the sun’s heat for coming into your home and the heated/cooled air from escaping.
Roof replacement and other energy upgrades earn you a tax credit, which is another reason to get it done this year.
