I need a new roof (Northern N.J.) but heard having asphalt shingles installed in cold weather is not a good idea because they don't adhere properly (the bead of roof cement between each course does not 'melt' together) in cold weather...
Is this true?

if your roof is not leaking, wait until spring and have it installed. try to set it up with your roofer to do it when you are
having 60 to 70 degree days.

Also, if you work with the shingles when it is cold, they will
break easier and that will not be good. Again, as stated above,
wait till warmer weather.
