FL Roofing: Protect Against Humidity This Summer

Summers in South Florida are known for being hot and humid. While we can escape to cooler and drier air-conditioned spaces, your roof has to take the heat. To ensure your FL roofing continues to protect your home all summer, there are some proactive measures you can take before the full heat and humidity arrive. At Ridgecap Roofing, we understand how the weather conditions in South Florida can affect your roof, and we’re ready to help you prepare for every season.


Here are some tips to help you protect your FL roofing for the hot and humid conditions of a South Florida summer.


Upgrade the Ventilation

Adequate ventilation is crucial to preventing moisture from building up under your roof and in your attic. Proper airflow reduces heat and humidity in the attic space, reducing the risk of condensation and mold growth. Keep your roof and attic vents clear of obstructions to facilitate airflow.


Install a Dehumidifier

If your home is designed such that moisture tends to become trapped in the attic or upper crawlspace, consider installing a dehumidifier to combat this issue. Proactively reducing moisture in that area can help prevent moisture-related issues, such as mold and mildew growth and structural problems.


Use Mold and Mildew Inhibitors

Mold, mildew, and algae can grow on the outside and inside of your roof. Applying mold and mildew inhibitors in the spring or early summer protects your roof from mold and algae growth. Preventing these growths protects the integrity of your roof and keeps it looking clean and well-maintained.


Check for Leaks

High humidity can make existing leaks worse, so you should have a professional FL roofing contractor check your roof for leaks. Throughout the summer, look for damp spots, water stains, and other signs of leaks.
