Painting a wall, replacing an air filter, cleaning a window – all of these make for a good DIY project over the weekend. But a larger project, especially if it involves your roofing system, will require the skills and expertise of an actual professional. One of the area’s trusted roofers, Summit Roofing & Restoration, Inc. shares what makes DIY roof repairs a bad idea.
1. DIY roof repair actually costs more money. People assume that DIY is less expensive – and that’s somewhat true for smaller projects. Roof repairs are a different story. DIY-ing the job increases the risk of costly mistakes and inadvertent roof damage – things that will take a whole lot of money to fix. You actually get to save more if you’ve just hired a roofing contractor in the first place. Professional roof repairs, after all, are usually a one-and-done deal.
2. DIY repair nullifies your roof warranty. Most roofing manufacturers only provide warranty coverage when the actual repair work is performed by one of their certified roofing contractors. If someone other than an authorized pro does the work (like a DIY-er, for example), they can nullify your coverage with just one Thanos snap. Keeping your roof warranty intact is crucial as it ensures that any roof problems caused by material defects or poor workmanship will be covered at no additional cost to you.
3. DIY roof repairs take longer to finish. The fact is that DIY roof repairs are no walk in the park. You’ll need to evaluate the roof’s overall condition, determine all the problem areas, purchase the necessary tools and materials, and then perform the actual repair work. And if you made one tiny mistake? You’re going to start the process again. This won’t be an issue if you just turn to Summit Roofing & Restoration, Inc. We do timely and efficient roof repair work that leaves no room for mistakes. Give us a call and we’ll bring your roof back to its pre-loss condition in no time.
