Vision Construction Has You Covered for All Your Winter Roofing Services

Home-related projects are always easier in the spring or summer, but that doesn’t mean that your roof and other key areas of your home are going to wait for the warmer months to need repairs and other services.

When you need a roof over your head, you need it right away. Fortunately, at Vision Construction, we can take a challenging situation – like needing roofing services during the cold months – and make this experience as comfortable and convenient as possible – and that includes the affordability, respect, thoroughness, and effectiveness of all our residential roofing services.

Today, we’re answering all of your questions about winter cold and roof repair, so you can tap into our expertise no matter the weather.

Can You Get Roof Repair, a Roof Inspection, or Even Roof Installation In Winter?

Keep this in mind, first and foremost: Vision Construction is here for you in all kinds of weather, no matter the situation with your roof, gutters, siding, and more. But if you’re curious about whether we can perform roof installation in the wintertime, the answer is yes – but with a few words of caution.

We can absolutely install a new roof for you, and look forward to making sure your home is safe and protected in the process. However, we want to make sure this job is done right. Roofs can buckle and materials can shift or break due to the freezing temperatures, and winter weather – of course – can make installation difficult.

We recommend a temperature of no less than 40 degrees to ensure the quality of your installation. We will often look for a window of time where the weather is looking favorable, and then we can schedule you at that time.

What About Emergency or Time-Sensitive Situations and Roof Installation Services?

We understand that sometimes roof repair has to be done in adverse conditions, especially if you have leaks or damage that will affect the interior of your home, so we do offer solutions other than complete installation if conditions will allow.

While other seasons may be more ideal, you might be experiencing an aging roof that won’t be able to make it through another winter, or you’re planning to sell in the future, or even unexpectedly. On the other hand, it may be that you’ve experienced significant storm damage, and a roof repair is necessary.

Whatever solutions our homeowners need, we can be there to make sure you get the services you need, when you need them, so that your roof can provide the strength, safety, protection, and curb appeal your home deserves.

Schedule a free 21-point roof inspection with our expert team and we’ll make sure you get the residential roofing services you need, including general roof repair and storm damage repair.

How Can a Roof Installation Team Help Me in the Wintertime?

Even if it may be too cold for a complete roof installation, Vision Construction isn’t taking any breaks when it comes to serving our customers. We continue throughout the colder months, offering services that may come up during this time of year.

Here are some residential roofing services we can provide no matter the weather:

  1. A Free, Thorough 21-Point Roof Inspection
    Covering all aspects of your roof, chimney, gutters, and siding, we are painstaking about our observations to make sure we give you the clearest, best picture of the condition of your roof. This isn’t a gimmick. We do this because we are committed to our communities, the valuable homes within them, and the safety of the folks inside. In other words, we’re here to serve, no strings attached.
  2. Storm Damage Repair
    In the event that there is unfortunate damage to your roof due to ice, snow, or wind this year, we can be there to assess the damage and help take care of your roof, so it is safe, protective, and repaired effectively.
  3. Roof Repair In Preparation for a Potential Stormy Winter
    Our free, thorough 21-point inspection also includes recommendations that will help you prepare for the snow, ice, sleet, and wind that may be coming your way. We want to make sure your roof is in the best shape possible, so it can endure a challenging winter, and keep you, your family, and your belongings safe and dry.
  4. Ice and Snow Barriers
    When we provide a residential roofing inspection in the winter, we’re looking for ice and snow barriers in the underlayment, to ensure that any small cracks have that extra layer of protection against the elements. The silicone that is used as a sealant around certain items, like pipes and your chimney, tend to wear off, so this barrier is an additional – and important – layer of protection.

    In some cities and towns in our service area, these barriers are required by code, so we can work with you to find out whether or not your insurance company will cover the installation of a strong water and ice barrier if you don’t have one, or if your roof was installed before this building code was in place.
