The Risks of DIY Roof Repair

DIY projects are a common trend nowadays, especially since homeowners are doing everything they can to cut back on their expenses. It's gotten to the point where they may even think professionals are unnecessarily expensive. While this isn't a bad idea, not all projects around the home should be done by yourself, especially when it comes to your roof.

The RIsks of DIY Roof Repair | West Side Roofing

West Side Roofing, one of the top roofers in the area, advises against DIY roof repairs. Here's why:

Improper Repairs

The roof over your home has an important job, namely, protecting your home and your family from the harsh elements. For that reason, it's important to ensure that your roof is always in top shape. This means providing regular maintenance and the proper solutions. Professionals have the training and experience to not only restore your roof's condition, but also improve its performance. An untrained homeowner, on the other hand, might worsen the problem, leading to more extensive issues and costly repairs.

Safety Concerns

Any form of roofing task is an inherently dangerous activity, so even if you only need to make small repairs, simply hauling heavy materials up a ladder and walking on your roof poses a safety hazard. Unless you have the right safety equipment and training, it's best to leave this task to roofing professionals.

Voided Warranty

Most roofing warranties cover manufacturing defects and labor for a specified period of time. Performing DIY repairs, however, can cut your protection short as warranties often have a fine print that voids them if someone other than a certified roofing professional performs work on the roof. This is to protect against damage from botched roof jobs.
