Unfortunately, your roof is not usually pick up the warm, clear day to break, having it is far more common for your roof for leaks and problems develop when the rain is beating down and the wind is blowing a gale. Even if the roof is damaged on a calm day in reality is very unlikely that you will notice until the weather changes. At least without regular maintenance will be. If it is absolutely essential to install roofing shingles in cold climates there are certain things to consider, but it is always better to fix your roof on a calm day; it may not seem necessary at the time but it is safer for you and your roof.

Installing roofing shingles in cold weather is dangerous.

Rise on its roof in cold weather, especially when there is ice or snow is potentially very dangerous. Any traffic on your roof should be avoided whenever possible, because a slippery roof is likely to result in a serious fall. If you have to go on the roof to carry out repairs you must always ensure that the own roof, stairs and any equipment to be used is dry and secured safely.

You can damage the material if installing roofing shingles in cold weather.

Removing ice or snow from the roof can cause serious and irreparable damage to the roof. Scarping away at anything in your roof can easily lead to the removal of the protective surface of the tiles, and this surface is the best protection you can get against the elements. Prevents damage to the material itself and ensures that all the water will run smoothly off the roof surface without picking. Extraction means your roof is more prone to leakage. In addition, the minor hit in a freezing cold tile is likely to be easily broken.

Things to consider when installing roofing shingles in cold weather.

The most important thing to remember in case you need to install roofing shingles in cold weather is your personal safety. Traversing a sloping roof in icy conditions is almost suicidal and should be avoided at all costs. There is a reason that you can not get a roofing contractor to come out and fix his roof in these conditions and not because it's too cold to work. Snow is not the best morning dew and can create a slippery surface that is potentially lethal to anyone trying to walk on the ceiling. However, if you need to replace a tile try to stay on the ladder and be sure to handle the tiles with as much care as possible not to break them. You will need to manually seal tabs of the shingles down to yourself, as the heat of the sun normally activated adhesive strips, but this is not going to be possible in cold weather.
