Many homeowners enjoy doing DIY home improvement projects. However, some projects should be off limits to amateurs, and roof work belongs in this category. Roofing demands the experience, equipment, skills and knowledge that only professionals have. In this post, A1 Siding & Roofing, the top roofing contractor in our local area, talks about DIY roofing mistakes that can cause serious problems.
Ignoring Safety Issues
Roofing is dangerous due to the use of ladders and working from a great height. Professionals have the skills, tools and experience to do the job safely. They know what the risks are and how to stay safe throughout the job. Don’t put your own health and wellbeing on the line by attempting to repair your own roof.
As a reputable residential roofing company, we undergo ongoing training to continually hone our craft and sharpen our skills. A DIYer simply doesn’t have the expertise of a professional roofer. They are more likely to make mistakes during roof work, which could cost more to repair than they would have spent on a professional in the first place.
Spending More Than Expected
A lot of DIYers think that they can save money by dong the work themselves rather than hiring a contractor. This is a risky bet. A professional roofing company like us has access to high-quality materials, not to mention we’ve undergone proper training on how to install those materials. Amateurs don’t have access to these high-quality materials, which could lead to subpar products, as well as an error-ridden installation
