With the countless tutorials online on almost everything, you might think that fixing your roof on your own is easy and simple enough. However, going that route may bring you more problems than solutions.
You’ll Void Your Warranty
Roofing manufacturers have specific instructions on how they want their products to be used. Some also have a list of authorized contractors that they certify to install their products. Letting someone unqualified do the roofing work – including yourself – increases the chances of your warranty getting voided.
You May Damage Your Roof
A few incorrectly placed nails or misaligned shingles are enough to expose your entire roofing system to the damaging effects of moisture and the elements. This is more likely to happen in a DIY repair, which is why you’re better off leaving the job to a professional roofer who has the skills and expertise to avoid errors that can compromise your roof.
You May Injure Yourself
As with most construction work that takes place above the ground, your rooftop is a risky place. From getting up the ladder to walking on the sloped roof surface, the hazards mount if you are not careful enough. Letting an experienced pro do the roof repair is much more sensible than having to put yourself in harm’s way. After all, they have the necessary training to make sure they follow safety precautions while they do roofing work.
