Large renovation projects such as roof replacements should never be taken lightly as dangerous and expensive mistakes can occur at any time. Indeed, it’s always better to let trusted professionals get the hard work done right the first time round.

This way you ensure that you’ll get:

  • Quality roof replacement and repair by real experts

  • Access to know-how and a diverse choice of quality materials

  • Professional consultation on planning, budgeting, maintenance, and more

  • Flexible payment plans which meet your needs

  • Peace of mind and personal safety

With all this in mind, let’s dig deeper into the benefits and risks of a DIY roof replacements vs hiring a professional roofing contractor.

When to DIY?

From full and partial roof replacements to major restorations and repairs, hiring professional contractors is always recommended.

This doesn’t mean there aren’t some roofing jobs that can be completed by knowledgeable home or business owners. With proper equipment, some endeavor and a great deal of balance, you can make minor repairs to your property. However, what qualifies as minor repairs will depend on each person’s roofing experience and physical ability.

Is it Always Better to Hire Professionals?

Before you consider a DIY roof replacement, check if your toolbox contains the following: a roofing hammer, pry bars, a roofing shovel, a caulking gun, a framing square, hammer tackers, a power nailer, and a whole lot of shingles.

These are just a few examples of the things you’ll need to begin your roof replacement.

Some other factors to consider are whether or not you’re ready to make judgement calls on your property’s structural integrity, if you’re comfortable with heights, and if you’re ready to lift heavy shingles up and down and ladder for work that will take multiple hours to complete? And perhaps most importantly, do you have adequate safety measures (such as insurance) if things go wrong?

Give yourself a worry-free roof replacement and go with professional roofing services. Get a team of experts equipped with all the necessary tools and access to a selection of materials fit for any budget.
