Why You Shouldn’t DIY Your Roofing
A roof is one of the most important components of your home, providing protection from harsh weather conditions and keeping you and your family safe. When it comes to re-roofing your home, it’s tempting to consider doing it yourself. However, this is a project that should not be taken lightly. In this blog, Imperial Roofs and Aluminum will discuss why re-roofing is not a DIY project and the benefits of hiring a licensed roofing professional, like Imperial Roofs and Aluminum, to get the job done safely and effectively.
Why Re-Roofing is Not a DIY Project
Re-roofing your home involves significant risks and challenges, which is why it’s not a project that should be attempted as a DIY. One of the main concerns is safety hazards. You need to be roped off and use safety equipment almost all the time, especially when you are working at heights more than 10 feet almost all the time and out of the angled surface, which is highly dangerous if you’re not experienced. Also, it requires physical endurance and stamina to work in extremely hot conditions or cold conditions, depending on what time of year you want to do your roof. The proper application and proper selection of materials, and the sequence of how to put them on, are also highly important to ensure a safe and leak-proof roof. Any mistake during the process can lead to expensive repairs and replacement costs.
Re-roofing your home requires a significant investment of both time and money. If you have no experience with re-roofing your home, you will almost always have leaks, which in turn will cost much more money than the money you saved doing your own roof. Hiring a licensed roofing professional, like Imperial Roofs and Aluminum, can save you money in the long run by ensuring the job is done the first time correctly.
Hiring a professional roofing contractor will take care of all the situations that can arise from doing it yourself. A licensed and certified roofing professional should know all the guidelines in regard to repairing your roof. They should also know all the rules of application to make sure your roof is of the highest quality. They should also be able to offer a variety of different materials that can be applied to the roof to fit your budget. You will also be relieved of the extreme heat conditions that a worker has to endure to put together a new roofing system on your home.
Hiring a Professional
When hiring a professional roofing contractor, it’s essential to look for a licensed, insured, and certified roofing professional like Imperial Roofs and Aluminum. The cost of hiring a professional varies depending on the size, slope, height, and age of your home. Reasonable pricing should be between three dollars and five dollars a square foot at the minimum to ensure you are getting what you need and want.
