How Roofing Differs for Floridians

When considering your roofing options in Tampa, Florida, it is incredibly important to take the local weather into consideration. In hot and humid conditions, like those affecting our Tampa roofs and homes, it is especially important to make sure your home is properly insulated and sealed to prevent heat and humidity from entering the house.

Another issue Florida residents face when it comes to their roofs is the direct radiation from the sun hitting their roofs. Some techniques that help control this direct heat include light-color roofs, radiant barriers, vented air cavities under the roof and large overhangs to protect the walls and windows from the sun.

In order to prevent humid, moist air from getting stuck in your attic, we install attic insulation and air barrier on the underside of the roof deck for added protection and insulation.

It is important to use an experienced Florida roofing contractor when repairing or replacing your roof. Only a local Florida roofer has the knowledge and experience to complete your roofing job with the highest quality workmanship, a requirement to protect your Florida home.

Florida Humidity and Your Roof

Florida humidity may cause many issues for your home. The condensation encouraged by high levels of humidity can affect not only your level of comfort, but also the longevity of your drywall, attic health and cause increased mold growth and insect infestation. The water vapor held in the air is absorbed into your buildings’ structures, particularly wood. High levels of humidity outside, common in our Tampa, FL area, can also lead to major dents in your wallet due to high home cooling costs. Roof condensation often leads to home humidity problems by allowing in moisture and condensation without being seen. Continue reading “Florida Humidity and Your Roof”
