Should You Roof in the Rain

When you are on the verge of completing a roofing project, it can be tempting to urge your roofing company to get the job done as quickly as possible – even when poor weather is rolling through. This can be exacerbated by the thought of bad weather messing up the work that has already been completed. It can be nerve-wracking for a home or property owner, and you may be tempted to have your roofer finish the job immediately. However, is this a good strategy for your roof? Can you roof amidst rain and poor weather?


While it may be tempting to have your roofer come to your property to finish the job in the rain, it is usually not a wise decision. One of the most important reasons is safety. The wet weather makes it more likely a worker will get injured, since the surfaces will be slick. It is best to wait until things dry out so the workers can work more safely.

Additionally, shingles use an adhesive that must properly seal for the roof to be watertight, and rain and moisture can mess with this seal during installation. This could end up being a very costly mistake for both the roofer and for the customer.

Occasionally, emergency fixes are necessary when it is raining outside, but it is generally not wise to work on a roof while it is raining.
