Is Gutter Installation Possible in the Winter?
During the winter months, homeowners often wonder if gutter installation is possible. The answer is yes. Many roofing repair companies provide their services all year long. There are some precautions that are recommended. Plan for the process to take a little longer. Materials will often work differently in extreme temperatures. Workers tend to take more breaks to make sure they are staying warm and not getting too cold.
While there are precautions to take, there are benefits. One benefit of having your gutters installed in the winter time is being able to schedule the work done quicker as winter tends to be a slower season for roofers.
The only time we wouldn’t recommend a gutter installation is when the temperatures are too cold and there is heavy snow accumulation on your roof and ice has built up around the gutters. These weather conditions run the risk of water damage in your soffit or other parts of your roof exposed to moisture while your gutter installation occurs. If snow and/or ice is present on your roof, we would recommend waiting until the temperatures warm up a little and the ice and snow has a chance to melt.
If the weather and temperatures are not extreme, you should be good to schedule your gutter installation in the winter.
