Why You Shouldn’t Attempt DIY Roof Repairs
February 8, 2018 | By Mike Gonet | Filed under: Blog
DIY home improvement projects can bring a sense of accomplishment, and they can help you save on the expense of hiring a professional. When it comes to roof replacement, repair and maintenance, however, it’s best to turn to the experts.
Classic Metal Roofs, the area’s premier provider of quality metal roofing services, explains the risks of performing the repairs yourself:
As an untrained homeowner, you may intend to fix the damage, but instead create other problems like leaks and mold. Resolving the problems you inadvertently cause means you’ll have to spend more money. On the other hand, hiring professional roofers from the start can help you minimize any potential costs down the line.
Roofing manufacturers often provide strict warranty details on your contract. These can include the duration and the terms and conditions that keep your roof’s protection intact. Usually, if someone other than a licensed professional performs any work on your roof, it can void the warranty. Keep your copper, zinc and aluminum metal roof investment secure by trusting Classic Metal Roofs with your repairs.
Performing your own repairs is not only risky for your roof but for you, as well. Trained roofers are equipped with a safety kit, harness and fall-protection anchorage. Without these, your safety will be at risk. And if you’re thinking, “how hard can it possibly be?” you might realize that the answer is “very” when you have to balance on a pitched and potentially slippery roof carrying heavy tools and materials.
