Dangers of DIY Roofing

Owning a home is expensive from day one. Even once you’ve paid it off, you still have to worry about all of the costs for maintaining the property. So it’s tempting at times to do the inspections, maintenance, and repairs yourself. However, this comes with an unexpected cost: your safety.

Your Safety

First and foremost, when you decide to attempt your own roof repairs, you’re putting your safety at risk. You don’t have the experience or equipment necessary to make sure that you don’t slip and fall while on the roof, and you also don’t have the equipment that’s needed to safely haul your tools up to the roof.

Additional Costs

We’re not trying to doubt your skills, but since you likely have little to no experience when it comes to repairing your roof, there’s a good chance you’re going to make a mistake along the way. And when you inevitably do make that mistake, you’ll have to spend more money and time on trying to reverse this error.

Voided Warranties

Anytime you make a big-ticket purchase, the salesperson always encourages you to add an extended warranty to protect that purchase more thoroughly. These are great investments, so don’t let them go to waste.

Warranties often come with a lot of fine print, one item typically included in there is that all repairs have to be done by certified professionals. Don’t throw your warranty out the window by trying to make repairs on your own!

If you encounter an issue with your roof, avoid causing an even bigger mess by calling in the professionals. This will keep you safe, save you money in the long run, and keep your warranty intact.
