It may be tempting to go the DIY route on roof repair to save some money on labor. However, this is a mistake. There is a time and a place for DIY work, but when it comes to roofing, you’re much better off entrusting the work to an experienced professional. Here’s why.
The Dangers of Improper Repair
Roofing problems that aren’t properly repaired will only worsen over time. Compounding the problem is that roofs don’t always tell you outright when they’re in poor condition, which makes it so easy to miss red flags–like leaks.
An experienced roofing contractor has the skills and knowledge to spot roofing problems that the untrained eye might miss. With 56 years of industry knowledge and experience, we can repair your old and damaged roof thoroughly and efficiently.
DIY Repairs Aren’t Safe
Roof repair is risky work even for professionals, which is why we make use of safety harnesses and other special equipment. The roof is inherently dangerous, even more so when it’s damaged. An amateur may not spot a damaged part of the roof and accidentally take a step in an area where the roof can’t hold their weight.
DIY Repair Voids Warranties
Keep in mind that most roofs come with a warranty that covers things like manufacturing defects, labor or both. These warranties will be voided if someone other than a qualified or certified roofer performs any work on the roof.
To avoid unintentionally voiding your warranty or making other expensive mistakes, always work with a certified roofing contractor for your all of your roofing needs. V. Nanfito Roofing and Siding has been delivering quality workmanship every time since 1965. Call us today at (203) 639-1634.
