If you’re a homeowner in the mid-west, such as Minneapolis, Minnesota, you’re well aware of how cold it can get. Winter usually goes from late November to March and with that so does lots of snow, cold, and short days. So how does the affect new gutters? Can, and should you, install in the cold, or wait for spring?
Whether you choose to have new gutters installed in the winter, or wait until warmer weather, we’ve put together a few things to consider.
When is the Best Time to Install Gutters? The answer is, it depends. While you can install gutters in the winter, it may be better to wait for very dark colors. If you’re installing black gutters for instance remember about expansion & contraction. Extremely dark colors, like black, shrink when it’s freezing out. If you install dark colors in the cold they can expand when it gets warmer out and buckle the gutter. That being said it’s still OK to install these in the winter just make sure it’s above freezing when installing dark colors. Lighter colors will make no difference.
