More and more people are trying to do by themselves what is best left to the experts. These things, such as wood window installation and roof repair jobs, should be entrusted to people with the experience, skills and knowledge to get the job done right.
That said, what would homeowners risk when they try to repair the roof by themselves? Homecraft, Inc®. shares some of these.
Poor Work Quality
Roofers didn’t start out as experts in roof repair, but their years of experience and training have equipped them with the necessary skills to do the job professionally. Amateur roof repairmen –the homeowner– shouldn’t expect to produce the same quality of workmanship only roofing pros can provide.
In the same way that experienced window contractors know how to determine the best replacement windows for any home, experienced roofers know how to spot roofing problems, how to repair the damage, how to choose the best roofing material for the job, and how to properly repair a roof so that it can last longer.
Roof repair jobs are dangerous. Contractors need to climb up ladders to get to roofs. They need to bring roofing materials to the roof, and they need to move around on the roof so they can get the job done. All of these pose a safety risk to untrained and improperly equipped DIYers.
Most roofing companies cover labor and manufacturing defects for a period of time. Many of them can cancel warranties if their materials are installed by anyone other than certified roofers. As a result, DIY roofing jobs might void the warranties.
