How cold temperatures affect shingles

Have you seen many roofing companies in your neighborhood during the winter months? That is because when it comes to applying shingles to your home or business, warmer weather is ideal. But winter roof installation is still doable—it just comes down to the type of shingle you use since some do not work as well in cold temperatures.

SBS Modified asphalt shingles, such as the CertainTeed Northgate, will lay flat down to zero degrees Fahrenheit and are better for low temps because they are more flexible and won’t damage as easily from the wind. If they were to curl up due to a windstorm before properly sealing, they would lay flat again because they are able to bend without creasing/breaking.
