As a residential property owner, you know the time will come when you must replace your roofing system. The process may not exactly be a breeze, but you can consider certain factors to streamline your roof replacement. More specifically, you can plan your residential roof replacement around a specific time of year.
Seasons can affect your roof installation.
Ideally, Florida property owners will want to plan any construction project during convenient times of the year. This notion applies to residential roof replacements. According to roofing experts, winter and spring are the most opportune seasons to complete a roof replacement. Why? Florida weather can be unpredictable throughout summer and fall due to hurricane season. From June 1st to November 30th, Floridians can expect blazing temperatures, heavy rainfall, high winds, and uncomfortable humidity. These conditions make construction difficult and can derail any schedules in place. Alternatively, Florida winters do not usually include snow. Residential roofers will not have to deal with severe weather patterns, like snowstorms, during winter months. Also, homeowners may decide to replace their roofs during springtime in a rush to prepare for hurricane season.
Consider the condition of your current roof.
Before deciding when to begin a residential roof replacement, consider the age of your roofing system, the status of any remaining roofing materials, and the condition of your ceiling and walls. Time of year is important when planning your roof replacement schedule; however, pressing roofing issues will definitely accelerate your timeline.
First, determine the actual age of your roof. The average asphalt shingle roof lasts about 12-15 years. Tile roofs will typically have a longer lifespan. If you know your roof is close to that replacement age, or has passed it, you should not wait to replace your roofing system. Second, take note of the wear and tear on your South Florida roof. Each day, your roof is exposed to natural elements, such as rain and sunlight, causing your roof’s components to wear down over time. Rainwater and the sun’s rays can decrease the lifespan of your roof. Broken, missing, or curling shingles can provoke roof decay, making your roof vulnerable to serious internal damage. Finally, asses any water damage. Water damage can affect the roof and the walls of your home, resulting in major structural issues down the road.
If your roof has experienced any of these challenges, now is the time to replace your roof. The longer you wait to take action, the more likely your roof will continue to deteriorate.
