Can you replace a roof during the middle of winter? You might think the answer to this question is a resounding no, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

We’ve put together this guide to show you why you replace a roof during the winter, even though the temperatures are often colder than the ideal. Make sure you keep reading below to learn more!

You’ll Save Money If you want to save as much money as possible on your roof replacement cost, scheduling your replacement during the winter can help you stay within your budget. And you shouldn’t wait much longer to start your roof replacement. In Calgary, the roof replacement cost jumps about 5-7% every two weeks due to increased demand for materials. The faster you hire a roof replacement company, the more money you’ll save. Waiting Will Only Make the Damage Worse In some cases, you can’t wait until spring or summer rolls around to repair your roof. If you put it off, you’ll end up with major damages and water leaking into your home. This can lead to more issues, such as water damage throughout your walls or floors, mould growth, ruined furniture, etc. Roofing during the winter can have some risks, such as delays due to weather. (However, Calgary has so many sunny days, you might not have to worry about this.) But depending on the current condition of your roof, those risks might be smaller than what could happen if you wait.
