As the largest roofing manufacturer in North America, GAF has standards in place to ensure all the company’s roofing products are properly installed. As a GAF Master Elite® contractor, AnyWeather Roofing has a clear grasp of these standards and is here to show homeowners interested in residential roofing replacement in winter that they have nothing to worry about when it comes to this project.
Is It Ever Too Cold to Install a Shingle Roof?
With the kind of training that GAF provides its certified roofers, they are able to take appropriate precautions, making it possible to install asphalt shingle roofing at any temperature. However, like with any roofing material, there are ideal conditions for asphalt shingle installations to facilitate handling in cold weather: temperatures above 40 degrees.
Winter Roofing Precautions
For easier installation and damage prevention, GAF residential and commercial roofing shingle contractors take these precautions during winter:
- Storing shingles in a heated area with a temperature over 70 degrees for at least 24 hours to make roofing material more pliable
- Avoiding the racking method, which requires bending or lifting shingles to place the last nail, as this can lead to breaking or cracking along the bend
- Being ready to hand-seal shingles when it’s cold to ensure the Dura Grip™ Adhesive is activated properly and promptly
