Tackling Winter Roof Installations

Two pairs of socks, check. Thermal underwear, check. Warm hat and gloves, check. DaVinci polymer roofing tiles, double check!

Despite frigid weather, roofers across the country can install DaVinci synthetic roofing tiles with confidence, even in the bone-chilling cold. By using extra jobsite caution, along with top-quality underlayments, an imitation slate or fake cedar shake DaVinci roof systems can be added twelve months a year.

Actually, DaVinci composite roofing can be installed in much colder temperatures than many other roofing products — even in temperatures as cold as 20 degrees F. As opposed to asphalt shingles that are more sensitive to temperatures and can expand and contract, DaVinci plastic roofing materials are ready for cold weather application.

Despite shorter days and cold temperatures, designer roofs made of synthetic materials can be installed during the winter months. Here are some tips for your cold weather installations:

Tip #1 – Prior to installation in colder temperatures, make sure that the shingles have been stored flat and are only installed when they are flat.

Tip #2 – DaVinci's unique formula allows our composite shingles to remain flexible in colder weather. It's important that the shingles are laid at a very minimum 3/16”.

Tip #3 – If using a pneumatic roofing nail gun for plastic roofing materials installation, the pressure should not be set too high. You may wish to hand nail pieces in if you're having trouble with your gas air compressor.
