Fall is the Best Time to Replace a Roof

In Florida especially, the autumn has cooler and more stable temperatures and weather patterns. This makes it easier for your roofing contractor throughout construction. Additionally, installing a new roof just before winter hits allows you to weather the season with renewed strength.

All roof repairs and replacements should occur in the fall if circumstances allow. It’s less likely that the weather will damage the roofing materials in this calm, temperate season.

Summer – Busy for Contractors

Many homeowners think of replacing their roofs in the summer. Despite the brutal Florida heat, summer offers a lot of clear weather–if you can avoid tropical storms. So, this is when most schedule their roof work, keeping contractors busy and leaving few options available for those late to the game. 

If you decide on summer, start earlier so your roofers deal with less humidity and lower temperatures while avoiding storm season. Because of the hotter temperatures in this region, roofing companies face severe risks in 90+ degree weather, especially when dealing with asphalt, metal, and other materials that attract and conduct heat. While this will likely stop only a few days in your project, you should consider it before you put your plan into motion.

Spring Gets People Thinking

Many homeowners experience roof damage in the spring after a harsh winter. Thankfully, spring makes great working weather for contractors, though rainy weather can cause delays. If you have a springtime roofing project, give us a call today!

Winter is the Worst

While you can schedule a roofing project in the Florida winter, you will be pitting your contractor against the worst elements all year. Snow and cold temperatures can cause leaks and make shingles harden and become brittle. Couple this with shorter days, and you may face a drawn-out, challenging project.

Start Your Project Regardless of the Season

Now you know the best time to replace your roof. That said, you can take advantage of Florida’s warm climate and start when best meets your goals and budget.
