Sorry - Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy do not exist at your age. Roofers are in business to make money doing roofing, not act as a finance company. While a very few might offer a special out-of-season deal for a couple month grace period on payment or to draw the payments out a few months, that would be a special case and not for an extended period of time. Longer term payment terms or zero interest terms are a consumer item offerring, like furniture and cars, subsidized by the manufacturer - not something the building trades are into.

You could certainly ask Roofers - AL would not have any such info on individual companies - but be prepared for either loud laughing or being violently hung up on.

Some will have brochures and applications from commercial lending companies who will give you a construction loan - but your loan is with the lender (who may range from extremely honest and reliable to shysters), not the roofer. You can also get a home improvement loan on your own at generally lower rates from a bank, savings and loan, credit union, or commercial lender - but asking for zero interest is out of the realm of reality.
