Many homeowners take pride in being good handymen and fixing various things around the house by themselves. While this is a great idea for saving money on repainting a door or a wall, it is definitely not recommended when it comes to your roof.
Roofing is a skilled and specialized work and trying the DIY approach is not a smart idea because:
- You May Get Hurt
Safety conscious Snellville roofing companies use specialized safety equipment and know how to walk around a roof safely. Even if you purchase the equipment, you still do not have the skill and experience and may fall down from the roof and suffer serious injuries.
- You Cannot Afford a Poorly Installed Roof
Your home is warm, dry and comfortable if it has a solid, airtight roof above it. Poor installation will cause you countless and costly problems, such as:
- Water leaking into the house
- Poor energy efficiency
- Mold, mildew and fungi spreading through the house.
Patchwork on a poorly installed roof will end up being more expensive than professional installation from the very beginning.
- You May Lose Insurance Coverage
Home insurers do not approve of unlicensed work on critical parts of your house, such as the roof, the electrical network and the plumbing. When you want to file in a claim, your handiwork will soon be discovered and your insurance policy will be voided.
