Why Repairing Your Roof Yourself Is Not a Good Idea

Roofpro Baltimore Washington Roof Repair Diy

Many people love a good DIY home maintenance project, but repairing your roof yourself can go very wrong, very quickly, in a variety of different ways. While homeowners may be tempted to take on this vital task themselves, there are a wide variety of reasons that you should save yourself the hassle and leave roof repairs to the professionals. The main reasons to turn to RoofPRO for all your roofing needs are to avoid risks – risks to your health, your roof, and ultimately to your wallet.

Roof Repair Can Be Dangerous

The primary reason that repairing your roof yourself is a bad idea is that it can be highly dangerous. For untrained individuals, exposure to serious heights and steep slopes alone can be a recipe for disaster, and that’s before taking into account the perils of Baltimore’s unpredictable weather which really ups the ante in terms of potential for injury. Chances are your average homeowner doesn’t have a roofer safety kit, and even those who do have one may not know how to use it for optimal safety.

Amateur Roof Repair Could Do More Harm Than Good

Roof damage is challenging to fix. Attempting a botched roof repair job yourself could end up causing damage to other sensitive roof features (such as your soffit or ridge vent) while trying to fix the problem area. If a leaking roof isn’t repaired quickly and sealed properly, electrical problems and mold issues from moisture accumulation can occur.

Doing It Yourself Can End Up Costing More

While professionals know what to look for and how to assess exactly what needs to be done when repairing a roof, your average homeowner does not necessarily have this skill set and can easily end up pouring more money than necessary into a fix. Our professional roofing team also has the ability to get roof materials at wholesale prices that are inaccessible when you attempt to do it yourself, which means you’ll likely end up spending significantly more on materials. They also get the right materials for the job the first time around so there is no extra expenditure on wrong or superfluous materials. This isn’t always the case with non-professionals. You may also end up costing yourself your warranty. Professional roofing companies often provide you with a warranty that becomes void if anyone other than a qualified pro roofer works on your roof.
