Welcome to the Sunshine State! In the Tampa Bay area we’re thankful to have the opportunity to offer roof replacements year around. However, not all seasons are created equal when it comes to replacing a roof. So when is the best time of year to replace a roof? Let’s break it down:


Spring is an ideal time of year to replace a roof in Florida. The mild weather and temperature usually makes way for a smooth roof installation without the worry of delay due to rain or wind. However, springtime is also a busier time of year for most Florida roofing contractors and the start of the roof replacement may be pushed back depending on the roof contractor’s workload.


Summer in Florida usually means high heat, humidity, and daily rain. Summer storms tend to cause project delays, as emergency repairs will take priority over scheduled roof replacements. Our tip is to look at the beginning of the summer, before rain season kicks into high gear. This time of year is typically slower for a Florida roof contractor, which can mean faster timeline for work.


Fall is Hurricane season in Florida, which mean it’s also the busiest time of year for a roof contractor. Hurricanes cause delays, while emergency repairs will take priority. Our advice when deciding to replace your roof in Florida is to avoid Fall if at all possible.


We always recommend the winter time as the best time of year to replace your roof in Florida. With hurricane season behind us, the workload begins to slow down, which means your roof replacement will take priority. The cooler weather also allows for quick roof installations and delivery of materials.
