Just because you can DIY a project, doesn’t mean you should. The Internet is full of (often questionable) guides to doing home repairs by yourself but watching some YouTube videos doesn’t make anyone into an expert. Only years of experience can allow home repair professionals to do their jobs well, and that’s why you should only allow an experienced Fayetteville, NC, residential roofing company handle repairs to your roof.
The reasons against trying to do your own roof repair or replacement are numerous. For example:
- Roofing work is dangerous
It might not seem like a fall from a residential roof would be that bad, but in fact, falls from roofs account for one third of all construction-related deaths. Doing roofing work is genuinely dangerous, and you truly should not attempt it by yourself. Leave it to professionals who know how to protect themselves and have gear to increase their safety.
- Save time
Many hands make light work, as the saying goes. Trying to do any roof work on your own will take a lot of time, and that’s time where your roof is vulnerable and you’re not getting anything else done. A crew of professional roofers can handle a job in just a day or two, while it might take you a week or more.
- Avoid costly mistakes
A mistake with fixing your roof might not only affect your roof – it could potentially impact your entire home. Leaks can quickly create water damage or lead to mold and mildew outbreaks. We’ve seen too many DIY attempts end up causing extensive damage, making them far more expensive than if the person had just hired a professional residential roofing company in the first place.
- Material cost-savings
When roofers buy materials like shingles, they’re buying in bulk. That allows them to provide materials much more cheaply than if you were buying them at your local hardware store. Often, you’ll get higher quality materials for less than if you bought them yourself!
- Get more for your money
A professional roofing company can spot problems with your roof you don’t even know are there and fix them as part of the job for little or no extra money. That’s a great value, as well as helping protect your home.
