As a homeowner, there are a lot of little jobs and seasonal maintenance that you can take on yourself. With a few Saturdays dedicated to the project, there are a lot of things you can accomplish on your own with a little research and a few tutorials on YouTube. Repairing or replacing your roof, however, shouldn’t be one of those projects.
When it comes to roof repair, leave it to the pros. For starters, professionals have the experience and expertise to do the job so it not only looks good, but is also long-lasting. Roof repair can actually be quite difficult, as you must know how to properly cover all the alleys and the best way to deal with difficult slopes. Roof repair professionals are also the best resource to make sure the material that is used is the correct material for your roof, your home, your climate, and your budget. As an amateur, you might be tempted to get whatever is most economical or to cut corners on some of the tools you may use. These shortcuts will be visible both in the overall look of your roof and its durability. Doing it right the first time, and hiring a professional to do the work, will save you money in the long run, as your roof will hold up much longer.
One of the most important reasons you should hire a professional for roof repair is for your own safety. Asphalt shingles can weigh about 3 pounds apiece. On their own, they are easy enough to lift, but try doing it with one hand while climbing up a 12 foot ladder dozens of times in a row. Fatigue can lead to injury.
