Timing is crucial to a successful roof replacement job. So is climate.
The time to replace your roof is as soon as possible. However, seasonal weather patterns tell us the ideal time to schedule a roof installation. For Floridians, the winter season is the best time of year to replace your roof.
Scheduling Your Roof Replacment in the Winter
By winter, hurricane season is over. We have fewer storms which means fewer disruptions during your roof replacement.
The climate during replacment affects your roof’s life expectancy. Typically, asphalt shingle roofs can last up to 20 years, tile roofs up to 40 years, and metal roofs up to 70 years before a roof replacement is required.
We don’t recommend repairing or replacing your roof in the Summer and Fall. This time of year in Florida is known for obnoxious amounts of heat and humidity. Excessive heat and humidity are harmful to your freshly installed roof and hinders the reroofing process.
Winter is also the most affordable time to reroof your house. Roofing contractors need work in the winter. This works in your favor because roofing contractors will operate at low costs.
An Alternative: Scheduling Your Roof Replacment for the Spring
Spring is your next best option. Even though hurricane season begins in Spring, the level of hurricane activity is low, which means your roof replacement is less likely to get delayed by a hurricane.
Generally speaking, Florida experiences fewer storms during the Spring. This makes for smooth roof installation in the Spring.
If you’re considering scheduling your roof replacement for the Spring, you should also consider that roof contractors are busiest during this time of year. Emergency projects or the most profitable projects take priority for most roofing companies. Wait times run higher than normal during the Spring.
Signs Your Roof Needs Urgent Care
We strongly recommend you schedule your roof replacement in the winter. But, when desperate times call for desperate measures, do not hesitate to get your roof replacement done in the summer or fall.
Signs that your roof needs urgent care look like this:
- Sagging Roof
- Curled Shingles
- Water Damage
- Storm Damage
Damage to your roof is serious and could result in structural damages. Structural damages are much more costly and are a headache to handle. If your roof is signaling that it needs special care, call a roofing expert stat.
