When it’s time to replace your roof, it’s tempting to eschew professional help and do the roof installation yourself. For many homeowners, they see this as saving money, unaware that DIY roofing projects end up costing more in the long run. In this post, Crown Roofing LTD. discusses the dangers of DIY roof installation.
Poor Installation Costs More
The roof is a complex structure that, contrary to popular belief, is made up of different parts acting as a cohesive unit. There’s a lot to consider and assess when you’re replacing a roof. In fact, it can get mind-boggling just thinking of all the associated parts on top of the shingles and underlayment.
Doing a DIY roofing installation might cause you to miss a critical component of the roof. Failure to do this can end up being costlier than had you relented and worked with a pro in the first place. For example, failure to address structural damage will cost you more because the new roof won’t be as sturdy as it could be and will have a drastically reduced life span.
Roofing Projects Are Dangerous
On the surface, the roof might seem hardy enough to tread upon, but remember: your roof won’t always give you the full picture. A sturdy surface might have considerable structural damage underneath, which isn’t exactly safe. When you work with us, however, we do a full inspection of your roof so you can find out the true condition of your entire roofing system.
Installing a New Roof Requires Skill
While tearing out the old roof simply involves a bit of strength and elbow grease, actually applying the new roofing system requires a bit of skill and experience that only pros have. Additionally, your new roof needs to be installed quickly to protect the more vulnerable parts from exposure.
