Can You Finish a Roof Replacement in Rainy Weather?

No matter if you are installing a new flat or sloped roof on your home, it is best to do so when the weather is good. Most roof repairs can be done in one day. A full roof replacement can take three days on average. It can be difficult to find three sunny days consecutively depending on the season.

Most modern roofing systems are able to be installed even in the rain. However, this isn’t without risks. Reggie Reed Roofing’s roofers know what to do if it rains during a roof installation.

Pause Construction

Rain can cause delays in certain phases of construction. Certain types of roofing systems like the shingle roof require dry weather in order for the shingle adhesives that are used to set correctly to dry. Water damage is especially common to interior components such as the OSB boards, the underlayment, and the rest on the roof deck. Most contractors cover the roof unfinished with a tarp, and wait for the weather cooperates before proceeding.

Warranty Considerations

Rainstorms can cause roofing warranties to be voided. Before making any decision, it is important to read these terms and evaluate the coverage of your warranty. It is possible to complete a roof replacement even when it rains, but it can be extremely risky.

Patience is a Virtue

However, it is best to schedule roof work for sunny days. A metal roofing would be especially beneficial if it was completed in dry conditions.

No matter the weather, Reggie Reed Roofing’s roofers can help you with any roofing repair, replacement, or maintenance.
