Late Fall Install And Sealing The Next Summer


I've been told quite a few times that if shingles are installed so late in the fall of 2015 that they don't seal before winter, they will seal up in the summer of 2016, just as well as those that were installed in the spring of 2016. . Do folks agree on this?

However, I also heard of one case where shingles were applied in late fall and they never did seal. (The guy had to tear them off after 5 years.) Another guy tells me that architectural shingles are rigid enough that they will always seal up well the next summer - even if they don't seal before winter - because dirt and dust will not be able to get in and interfere with the sealing. What's your experience on this?

Re: Late Fall Install And Sealing The Next Summer


Personally I don't like to install if it is starting to get to cold. Plus we have alot of winter wind which if they are not sealed down will blow up. And in a new area with little to stop the dust they will get dust in between them and not seal. Think a lot of shingle makers recommend +40 or more, up north it is hard to reach that on the north side of the roof.

About one of the few things use to like about T-Locks could put them on in about any temp.

Re: Late Fall Install And Sealing The Next Summer


my experience pretty much the same as Randys.

I am thinking of a local allotment here- I did not do the install--------- but for years later I did so many of the repairs......

shingles went on late fall/winter.
NEVER sealed down.

Allotment next to a highway-for years when I drove buy(almost everyday)---shingles flapping like venetian blinds.

Re: Late Fall Install And Sealing The Next Summer


I do quite a bit of roofing around 0 to -5degrees C, so in the 20`s F. If they are installed properly and not in a windy, dusty environment there is no detriment to the install.
As long as the installers know what they are doing with a cold weather install.
Some bundles will need to be opened up and laid out over a sunny area to let the shingles relax, the caps need to be laid out in advance as well.
The key here is experienced cold weather installers.

Re: Late Fall Install And Sealing The Next Summer


cold weather installs when it's sunny and no wind????

we probably have 9 hours per winter when it's sunny and no wind---of course those 9 hours are spread across 27 seperate days and the 27 days are spread over 4 months....

We usually get a few weeks spread over the winter with good conditions. Usually wind up doing about 4 or 5 houses each winter.

I've roofed all year (or most of it) for over twenty years and only once had shingles not seal and blow off. I'm not saying its fun or my first choice but it takes care.
