Weather Considerations for Shingle Installation

Can you install shingles in cold weather?

Yes!  All shingles install fine if we follow installation guidelines.  However we do pick the warmer days during the winter to install.

The Landmark series can be installed 38 degrees and above, so some days we start when it might be in the high 20s to strip the roof and then install shingles in the afternoon when it is the forties.

The Northgate shingle is made in the Minnesota plant and designed for cold climates. It is a rubberized asphalt that can be installed down to as low as 0 degrees fahrenheit

Sometimes shingle do not always lay completely flat and the bottom edge does not always seal until the spring as the sun is low in the sky and doesn't warm the asphalt and adhesives enough. This doesn't impact the shingle as this is really for longevity and the manufacturer warranty is valid anytime of year we install.
