24 Oct Roofing In The Rain?
We can’t forecast weather with 100% accuracy. We know that rain will eventually come, especially in areas that get more than a few storms each year. What happens if a rainstorm hits the area where you are having a new roof installed? Is roofing in the rain a good idea? The truth is that in short, no.
Why Can’t Roofing Be Done In The Rain?
Your roof protects your house from wind, and moisture. Mother Nature will reveal the most vulnerable areas of your home during the roof installation. If water is present, it can threaten the integrity and even cause damage to your new roofing system. It is important to keep your roof as dry as possible during installation. This will reduce the chance of any accelerated wear or damage to the lower parts.
It Is Dangerous To Install A New Roof In The Rain
Kennedy Roofing And Carpentry will not install a roof when it rains because of the risk it poses to their crew. Combining rain with roof work is a recipe for disaster. The potential for slips and falls, as well as tool accidents, are all increased. The worst part is that roofers who are working on your roof may be struck by lightning.
What Happens To A Partially-Installed Roof If It Rains?
When the clouds turn gray, Kennedy ‘s team can spring into action. To minimize moisture intrusion, your roof will be covered quickly with the most reputable roofing materials. If any areas get wet, they will need to be dried thoroughly before further work can begin.
