If you’ve ever thought of doing some DIY roofing in order to repair a leak overhead, you might not realize just how much you might be risking. This is especially true if you’re an untrained hand when it comes to repair jobs like these. But even a seasoned carpenter will be taking some unnecessary risks here. What might these risks be? Mobley Brothers Roofing and Renovation explores them in this post.
A Bad Repair Job
You’re risking a bad repair job when you attempt to do DIY. But wait, you say, I know what I’m doing. I’ve been doing home repairs for ages! That’s well and good for you, but the fact is, pros are pros because they’ve probably had more experience in roof repair than you could have in all of your years.
And experience goes a long way. For example: our roofing experts will know how to tackle roof issues in a way that won’t create other issues along the way. This will reduce the need for back jobs. This will also go a long way in helping you save money on your roof’s maintenance.
Safety and Liability
When you do your roof repair on your own, you’re risking a very important thing: yourself. If you decide to get up on your roof and work on the repair on your own, you’re the only one accountable if you get into an accident that might put you in a compromising situation. And if you don’t have the proper equipment or training, the likelihood that you’ll be getting into an accident is not low.
Pros, on the other hand, have the training to ensure that their job site has safety in mind at all times. They will have the necessary equipment to help them conduct their job properly, and will have had plenty of experience in erring on the side of caution during a residential roof replacement project, for example. And generally, these roofers have liability insurance, which can be helpful should an accident happen during the roofing project.
