Roofing DIY vs. Hiring a Contractor: Why You Shouldn’t DIY Roofing Repairs

Do you enjoy DIY projects? There’s a certain satisfaction that comes from fixing your home yourself. DIY projects can also save you some money. However, you may want to think twice before taking on a DIY roofing project.

Unless you’re a professional roofer, you probably don’t have the equipment or knowledge you need for the job. You may end up making a dangerous or expensive mistake on your roof.

Your home DIY project may not meet your expectations. According to a survey of over 2,000 homeowners, more than half find their projects are more challenging and time‐consuming than they first anticipated.

Though the survey included simple DIY projects, such as painting the walls and installing a backsplash, eight percent of homeowners still caused damage to their home during a DIY project.

Further, 16 percent of homeowners injured themselves. The proportion of injuries and damages from DIY roofing projects is certainly higher.

In a way, roofing is similar to gardening. Those who haven’t tried it may think it’s quite simple. The first time they bring home a plant, they find that they need to do more than put it next to a window to help it thrive. The same is true of roofing. Professional roofers use equipment, training, and experience to make their job look easy — but it isn’t.

There are several reasons to hire a professional over starting a DIY roof repair project. For more, Go through the wonderful blog written by IKO.
