What to Know About Shingle Roofing Installation in the Winter, Clarksville, Maryland

Many people prefer to install shingle roofing in dry, warm weather, but Maryland’s climate has a small window for the ideal conditions. Many contractors have perfected shingle installation year-round. Here’s what to know about having shingle roofing installed during the winter.

3 Tips for Installing Shingle Roofing in Winter

1. Choose the Most Optimal Weather

If you opt for a roof install in the winter, try to choose the month with the lowest historical levels of snow or rainfall. Coordinate with your contractor to find a 7-10 day window that shows a forecast of little precipitation and no extreme cold. 

2. Work With an Experienced Roofer

Tools, such as pneumatic nail guns, may work less efficiently, which may make the job take longer, but you can ask a practiced installer about the techniques they use to guarantee a successful installation. 

3. Make Sure a Supervisor Will Be Present

Even if your contractor has an experienced crew, it’s important for a supervisor to be present at all times to make sure that safety precautions are met. Despite potentially icy conditions, a supervisor can ensure that workers have roof fall protection and ways to warm up and rest. A well-supervised crew will take fewer shortcuts and get the job done faster.
