When Is It Too Hot to Work on a Roof

Being here in Arizona, the question of heat comes up a lot regarding roofing. When is it too hot for workers to be on a roof in the summer?

With temperatures upwards of 115 on summer days, the safety of roofers is very important. Roofers can’t just work on summer days, so it is important to take precautions. Hydration and lots of breaks if key. Other things that are important for roofers in the summer include sunscreen, hats, and surprisingly long sleeves to avoid as much exposure to the sun as possible.

There is no way to avoid roofing in the summer; just keep in mind that jobs could take a little longer due to the breaks and precautions that are taken for our roofers.
