Winter Roof Replacment

When your roof is covered in snow, thoughts of replacing your Calgary roof are probably not high on your mind, however, winter is a great time to expose the weaknesses of your roof. Winter puts a lot of stress on your roof, so if you start to notice signs of damage, it's a good idea to get it inspected and repaired before more big snow falls.  

Can you Replace Your Roof in Winter?

At Tony William, we work all winter long, so yes, you can replace your roof in winter. Metal roofing, in particular, can be installed in almost all weather conditions and will not be affected by temperature. Laminated architectural shingles need warmer weather, but fortunately we live in Calgary. No matter how cold it is today, warmer weather isn’t too far away. 

Does your Roof Need Replacing?

If your roof is leaking or has visible damage such as warping shingles, cracked shake or missing roofing materials, then it’s best to have your roof repaired or replaced as soon as possible. Waiting until spring or summer to fix your roof problems could lead to water leaks, structural damage and much more expensive repairs if not remedied.

With Calgary's fluctuating temperatures, the constant freezing and melting makes roofing materials expand and contract. This can lead to a host of issues like:

  • warping and cracking shingles
  • ice dams (water freezing and expanding under roofing materials)
  • frozen gutters (potentially leading to gutters pulling away from fascia)
  • leaks in your roof's penetration seals

Keep a lookout for visible signs of damage when snow and ice have melted from your roof. It is best to fix problem areas as soon as possible.



With the exception of commercial and flat roof projects, we are currently quoting residential projects to commence in 2021. Thank you for your understanding.

Advantages of Replacing Your Roof in Winter

Winter can be a good time to replace your roof because roofing issues are often highlighted with the snow and ice. Here are some signs of roof problems:

  • Icicles hanging from gutters are an indication that you have drainage issues that should be cleared or fixed 
  • Ice dams are often a result of attic ventilation problems
  • Interior water spots or stains are clear signs of a leak
  • Pooling water or snow may show sunken areas of your roof

You may not notice problems with your roof in the dry months of summer, so take advantage of the melting snow to gauge the integrity of your roof. Don't be afraid to get an expert opinion. Call us at Tony William and we'll be happy to answer all your roofing questions and provide a no-obligation roof quote.
