I would say the hotter it gets the better chance that the shingles will
soften too much. It can be a warm day but not too warm. Does the shingle
manufacturer have any info on proper installation procedures?

"...It can be a warm day but not too warm". What the hell does THAT mean.
Not much help at all, is it?
Then there's your "...Does the shingle manufacturer have any info on proper
installation procedures?" If the original poster had that information, he
would be asking questions here now, would he?
Critiquing other posts without adding information isn't particularly
To the OP: Generally I don't want to be on a roof if it's over 90
degrees. If the weather is really hot and there's no available shade,
start work very early, knock off for the hottest part of the day and do
another hour or two at dusk when it's cooled some and the sun isn't
beating down. It stays brighter longer up on a roof so you can
generally work pretty late. I've set up lights on occasion. The
neighbors have called the cops occasionally on one of my occasions.
If you're the one doing the work, wear non-abusive footwear and store
the shingles in the shade and bring the shingles up as you need them.
Pro roofers might have a problem with not fully loading the roof at the
time of delivery.
I disagree. The shingles will seal just fine the next hot day that comes
around. If you walk on hot shingles, you'll wreck them, not to mention
it's hotter 'n hell up there in the sun. Also, since the shingles are
soft, if you're using a pneumatic roofing nail gun, you could go right

I respectfully disagree and HAD to get my new roof replaced because it
was installed in too cold of weather:(
Shingles never sealed or laid flat properly.
I have a friend who is a roofer in pittsburgh, he said mid summer is
perhaps mid summer in phoenix at 120 degrees isnt so good?
around here 90 is about tops temp wise
Here on the Texas Gulf Coast, the number of days where the LOW temp of
the day is BELOW 40F can be counted on all fingers of both hands. The
number of days in the year where the HIGH temp does not exceed 40F can
be counted on the fingers of ONE hand in most years.
April thru September daily high temps are in the 90s. So roofers must
work mornings and late evenings.
Average high temps in Phoenix are a bit higher than here, but 120 is a
rare event Even Palm Springs is only a degree or two hotter than
Phoenix, and days with 120 temps are NOT frequent in the summer
Both Phoenix and Palm Springs are MUCH drier than here, so 110 is not
the pain that 95 degrees is here. We frequently see 90+/90+ days in the
summer. The air has WEIGHT here.
I've been in Palm Springs and Palm Desert in the summer when the temps
were hitting over 115. It felt BETTER than here in Houston TX at 95 F
with 90% RH
Humidity doesn't affect roof shingle installation nor sealing.
On a tangent, there was a table on joint compound drying time (drying
type, not setting) and in a place with 95 degrees 95 percent humidity
it can take several months to dry. "Okay, we finished the first coat
of spackling today. We'll be back in about three or four months to
check whether we need to wait another month or two for the second coat.
Enjoy the house!" ;)
