Have you been thinking about having your roof replaced? The roofing experts at Integrity Home Improvements believe that Fall in Minnesota can be the optimal time for having a new roof installed on your home. Below are three reasons to have your roof replaced before winter.
3 Reasons to Replace Your Roof Before Winter
Fall conditions are the best for a new roof. Besides the cooler temperatures that make it easier on the roofers doing the work, fall can provide optimal conditions for roof installation. Most shingles are asphalt, which become brittle in the cold weather, and can crack or break during installation in frigid temperatures. Most roofing experts also believe that the best temperature for the installation of asphalt shingles is between 45° - 80° F.
Proper sealing. Asphalt shingles need some time in warm weather and sun to successfully bond to the roof before the cold winter months. Even though winter is just around the corner, Fall in Minnesota provides many days of sun and warm weather.
Save on energy costs. Reap the benefits of a better insulated and ventilated home before winter starts and save $ on heating. A new roof can also provide better solar reflectance in the summer and reduce your cooling costs.
