Sweater Weather:

Autumn in Richmond provides the perfect weather, in a few ways. First, the temperature is helpful for keeping our crew cool and safe versus those hot days of summer. Also, most convincingly, most experts agree that shingles installed at milder temperatures (not too hot and not too cold)ensure the best application of roofs! Fall also has the added benefit of milderstorm weather. While Spring and Summer can bring unpredictable or heavy storms to Richmond, Fall brings a milder weather pattern and clearer, more predictable weather patterns for roofing contractors.

Installation Benefits:

As we mentioned before, experts recommend shingles be installed during milder temperatures for the peak installation of the roof.Shingles are the ‘little red robin hood’ of home exterior items, requiring it to be cool enough for the shingles to not stick together in the packaging, but also needing enough ‘sun’ heat on the roof for the shingles to set for an ideally sealed roof. To be fair and honest, Tredegar Construction and most highly professional companies have mitigation strategies in place and only uses the best products to ensure the absolute best roof regardless of season, butthe Autumn season goes a long way to ensure your project gets done on time and on budget!
