Anyone who considers going the DIY route with roofing projects may not fully appreciate the dangers involved. Discerning do-it-yourselfers actually leave these jobs to professionals because the risks aren’t worth taking just to save on labor or to have something to do over the weekend.

Dangers of DIY Roofing

For Lankford Roofing & Construction LLC, these are the biggest reasons you should never skip expert roof replacement services:

Serious Injury

Any roofing project is perilous. It takes training and experience to effectively spot and manage occupational hazards. The job requires high-quality safety equipment and the competency to use them. Even seasoned roofers know one misstep is all it takes, so they are extra mindful of safety.

Botched Work

Licensed roof replacement contractors would tell you that there are right and wrong ways to do roof removal and installation. If you don’t know how to use a flat head shovel or a power nailer, then it’s wise not to try being a hero. In most cases, you wouldn’t know you did something wrong until your error has led to leakage weeks or months after your DIY job.

No Workmanship Guarantee

The beauty of having a professional contractor is protection against poor workmanship. If you don’t get excellent results, you can hold your roofer accountable for any installation-related issues.

But if you fix your roof yourself, you assume the responsibility for the outcome. When things go wrong, you have no one to blame but yourself. In the end, you might end up using a licensed roofer anyway to correct your mistakes, so you’re forced to spend more money and use up more time.

Nullified Product Warranty

As in window replacement, defects in workmanship during a roof project could void the product’s warranty. Roofing manufacturers only stand behind their components as long as all installation requirements are met. One blunder can make you lose your insurance against roof failure.
