Roof Replacement

Hi There,

Im buying a house that needs a new roof sooner rather than later (according to the inspector) which I expected when I bought it.

Here's the issue, I take possession of the home at the end of December, not exactly prime time to install a new roof. Can I get away with waiting till spring?

Welcome to the forums! Since we can't see your roof, only you and your inspector know for sure. Are there any signs of leakage inside the house/attic? Are there missing shingles? Not knowing the size nor the shape of the roof, it would be tough for us to tell how long a job would take. Sometimes you get warm dry days and it can be accomplished, but you will want a complete tear off, so any freak storm would make for a bad day if it were torn off and not protected. Check with 3 roofing contractors to get prices and advice as to installation in your area. Canada is a far cry from Georgia on weather.
