The Atlantic Hurricane Season is a few months away in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. But it won’t be long before we start paying attention to storm systems approaching South Florida from the Atlantic and the Caribbean. While hurricane preparation is probably the last thing on the minds of South Florida’s homeowners, now is the perfect time to get a jump on protecting your property. During the course of the year, roofs absorb a tremendous amount of punishment. From torrential rain storms to the unrelenting heat and humidity of South Florida’s summers, chances are your roof has taken a beating. Just one small crack can result in bigger problems, such as roof leaks that can result long term water damage. With the weather getting slightly cooler and dryer, winter is the perfect time for South Florida homeowners to get started on protecting the property.
The Benefits of a Roof Inspection
Getting a professional roof inspection is one of the best ways to ensure your home has the best possible chance to survive a major storm. It is also relatively inexpensive and can be completed easily. One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make is inspecting or fixing their own roofs. No matter how handy you are with tools, it is best to leave these jobs to a professional. An experienced roofing contractor can often spot and identify potential problems most people cannot see with the naked eye. Once those issues diagnosed, they can be repaired correctly. Unfortunately, far too many homeowners are injured trying to make repairs on their own.
Ample Time To Fix Roofing Problems
When it comes to hurricane preparation, most South Florida homeowners tend to procrastinate. Although the Atlantic Hurricane Season is still months away, it is never too early to take precautions. Most people do not call roofers until there is a problem. Generally, the busiest time of the year is during the summer. Getting your roof inspected now will help prevent further headaches down the road.
Mild Weather and Cooler Temperatures
During the summer, afternoon thunderstorms along with high heat and heavy humidity can wreak havoc when trying to perform roof inspections. Winter in South Florida often brings more pleasant and mild weather conditions. It allows roofers to do their job in the best possible conditions. It also ensures repairs have a better chance of getting properly completed. By the time winter comes, cooler and dry weather conditions also allow homeowners to clean out the debris from their roofs and gutters. In many cases, roof damage is often the result of rotted and congested debris.
