Generally, yes!

The winter is generally a slower time for roofing companies and lower rates could help a company keep staff busy and not lay off employees.

The quality of the roof will be the same as long as the installation was done correctly.

But you’ll generally find that roofing contractors will run a sale, or a discount during winter months to help the company stay busy with work.

This could make the winter months more attractive from a cost perspective for homeowners looking to replace their roofs.
