Performing DIY repairs around your home might give you the feeling of satisfaction after getting the job done. But when it comes to your roof, you’re better off handing the work over to the experts. Pushing through with it on your own puts at risk a lot of things, which we discuss in detail below.
Going the DIY route means putting your roof’s warranty at risk of getting voided. Most roofing manufacturers will not cover problems stemming from repairs done by someone other than trained and certified roofing professionals. Such a policy is put into place to protect you against substandard work. Make sure your roof’s warranty remains intact by having it repaired or replaced by a manufacturer-certified contractor like Ken Morton & Sons LLC.
Being good with roof work doesn’t happen overnight with a couple of videos online. It happens through years of ongoing training. If you attempt to do your own roofing repairs, you may end up focusing on one aspect of the roof while ignoring the other. More often than not, this results in you not actually fixing the actual issue. You may think you’ve done a good enough job, but, in reality, you are putting your roof at risk of early deterioration and failure.
Likelihood of Injuries
Most roofing systems are steeply pitched, which means climbing up and walking across the roof surface can put any untrained homeowner to a variety of hazards. Many DIY roof repairs end up in slip and fall accidents, so for you to minimize such risks, it would make sense to let the professionals do the job. They have the necessary training and experience, making sure to observe the important safety precautions as they perform inspections and repairs.
