For people who do not know, Florida gets really hot in the Summer, like extremely hot, so much so that it's famous nationwide and nicknamed the "Sunshine State."

Along with the famous intense heat, it rains almost every day during the Summer in southern Florida. And if that wasn't enough, towards the middle of Summer is when hurricane season officially kicks off, which is what concerns homeowners the most.

For all the above-stated reasons are why it's good to ensure your roof is stable and secure before the season starts and roofing companies become insanely busy. It begins by getting a proper roof inspection conducted. An inspection can help determine if your roof is in good shape or needs a roof repair or roof replacement.

The reason for the inspection is that catching any problems, even minor, before the toll is taken from daily rains and blistering heat is crucial. Most people are unaware that even a missing shingle or a cracked tile can lead to massive problems, even possibly a roof replacement, if they are not addressed on time.

During the middle of Summer, most roofing companies are busy, mostly with roof repair jobs. Often they aren't able to take on a new roof replacement immediately, and if they can, often replacements get delayed due to rain. In addition to the rain forcing the roofing crews to stop working, the blistering heat necessitates that they take more breaks to escape the sun.

Therefore it is always best to look to get replacements done before Summer; not only will there be a lesser chance for delays due to weather, but the roof may end up costing less too. Another problem is during the Summer in recent years; there have been massive shortages of critical materials needed to complete a roof replacement, especially tile roof replacements. These shortages not only delay projects but also increase costs.

An important part of preparing your roof for summer is cleaning gutters and downspouts. Gutters are an important part of a roof's function, as they prevent water damage to the property. However, debris such as leaves, branches, dirt, and other unusual items can clog gutters.

The problem with clogged gutters is that they can create serious moisture problems in your home. This can lead to mould and mildew, and ultimately damage exterior walls and roof trusses. Also, hot weather can cause water in gutters to evaporate. Excess moisture can cause shingles and adhesives to break down. There's another reason to clean gutters and downspouts of debris. The weight of mud and water in gutters can cause joints to crack. In severe cases, the entire gutter system can be torn from the property. You can easily avoid these roof problems by cleaning gutters in early spring.
