What Is The Best Season To Re-Roof?

It’s still in the early part of the year, and you might want to replace your roof at some point this year. Before you set out and hire a professional roofer, you might want to think about timing. If your roof can hold out until the fall months that could be the best time for you to have the job done.

Florida is both easy and difficult when it comes to roof repair or re-roofing. The reason for this split is that the weather is almost always hard to plan around. Roofing replacements should be done when the weather remains calm, and unfortunately in Florida that is rarely the case. Re-roofing jobs tend to run into problems when dealing with rain, sun, heat, or hurricanes (wind). So, when it comes to Boynton Beach Florida, that’s the entire year.

Autumn is universally accepted as the best time, and that’s not really any different for us. New shingles need time to settle in; by that we mean seal and create a perfect barrier between the roof and your home. If rain is present, the sealing process can be interrupted, or it can slow down considerably. When dealing with great heat like the summer months, shingles become softer, and as a result the nails tend to rip through them a lot easier than they normally would. Experienced roofers like the ones at Gustafson Industries know the best procedures to take when assembling a roof, but there are some that do not adjust the strength of their nail guns, or have people walking all over the roof.

Even though fall months are prone to Hurricanes, they don’t typically have the heat of summer months, or the rain of spring months. That being said, our roofers are capable of doing your requests at any time of the year, we just want you to have the best job possible.
