Roofing contractors are not weather forecasters, and here in Venice, FL, especially during the summer months, rain comes almost on a daily basis. We get the rain question quite often. Can roofing contractors install a roof in the rain? We actually can’t, and let us explain why.
Can my roofing contractors install a roof in the rain is actually a valid question, but you have to remember your roof is there to protect your home. So you don’t want it exposed to the rain during roof installation. There are many delicate and intricate parts to your roof, and having them exposed to moisture, more moisture than we already have here in Venice and Sarasota, isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to compromise the integrity of your roof.
If it should rain during the day that we are installing your roof. We will always take protective measures to cover your roof and ensure that the integrity of your roof is not in danger. Further, we cannot put the lives of our crew at risk should there be severe weather in the area. Yes, putting the work off for an extra day might prolong the time it takes to complete your roof, but we pride ourselves on our work, and we want to be sure that we are providing the quality our customers have come to expect.
It’s important that you hire the right roofing contractor who understands that it’s more important to protect your roof and their workers, than to rush through a job in the rain. Doing that not only exposes your roof and your home. But the wood can swell, the materials can not adhere properly, and this will lower the life expectancy of your roof.
Hire an expert roofing contractor who puts you and your needs first, giving you a roof that will last for years to come. You just might have to wait for the rain to stop.
