The Dangers of DIY Roofing Projects

Apr 27, 2020 | Roofing

Doing work around the house yourself may bring a high level of satisfaction and also help you save on the cost of hiring a professional. While there are a number of home projects you can safely handle yourself, however, repairing your roof is not one of them. Here are three reasons why it’s dangerous to go the DIY route with a roofing project:


Safety Concerns

Repairing or replacing your roof requires climbing up a ladder and staying under the hot sun for hours. Even if you only need to make minor repairs, hauling heavy tools and materials up a ladder and walking on an inclined roof poses serious safety hazards. If you don’t have the right training for this task, it’s best to leave the job to professionals so you don’t risk injuring yourself. Working with an expert like us ensures the safety of you and your family.

Improper Solutions

Your roof protects your house and family from the harsh effects of the weather, day and night. For that reason alone, it’s important to ensure your roof is always in excellent condition. If you notice problems on your roof, it’s important to repair them properly, as they can lead to extensive issues later on, such as leaks and mold growth that can also affect your home’s interior. As an experienced roofer, we have the necessary training and equipment to ensure flawless roof repairs and replacements.

Voiding Warranties

Most roofing products come with warranties that cover manufacturing defects and labor. These include fine print that states the warranty will be voided if someone other than a qualified roofing professional performs any type of work on the roof. Roofing manufacturers do this to protect the roof from damage caused by a botched DIY job.
