Some roof repairs may seem so simple and straightforward that you might want to consider doing the job yourself. This is often the case with minor roofing issues or if the homeowner is a DIY enthusiast. The biggest draw to a DIY repair is often the cost. Homeowners think that a DIY roof repair would be cheaper. But in fact, without the proper skills, equipment and knowledge, your DIY roofing job will likely go wrong.
Roofing jobs come with certain hazards since they require climbing up to the roof and carrying heavy tools or equipment. If you’re not careful, you could fall off your roof and injure yourself – so say goodbye to any savings that you may have made on your repair costs and hello to the hassle of paying medical bills and recovering from your injury.
A roof inspection is typically needed to determine an appropriate and long-lasting solution to a roofing issue. This is best done by a professional as it assures you that no minor detail will be missed during the inspection. Without proper roof inspection, you might diagnose the problem incorrectly and apply the wrong solution. Furthermore, there’s no guarantee that your DIY repair will be done properly. Professionals are trained and experienced to handle a variety of roofing issues. If a problem is left to the hands of an untrained homeowner, it could worsen and lead to more extensive damage.
Voided Roofing Warranty
Keep in mind that your roofing warranty will only remain valid if all the conditions are met. Typically, roofing warranties become void if someone other than a qualified roofer performs any work on the roof.
