DIY is good for small projects, but not for any work that involves a significant home component, such as the roof system. If you currently need roof repairs, avoid taking the DIY route, and just go straight to hiring an actual roofer. You’ll soon find that professional roof repairs are more ideal because:
1. Unlike DIY, professional roof repair allows you to save money. There’s a preconceived notion going around that since you’re doing the work yourself, it will be far less expensive than hiring a contractor. That’s mostly untrue. Roof repairs require precise workmanship, and untrained homeowners run the risk of making costly mistakes and causing inadvertent damage to their roof. You’ll realize that multiple attempts at DIY roof repair will cost you far more than if you’ve hired a professional in the first place, where the solution is usually a one-and-done deal.
2. DIY roof repair will void your warranty. Most roofing manufacturers have stringent requirements on how their products are installed or maintained. They can nullify coverage if someone other than an authorized roofing company performs the repair. And given how the roofing warranty adds an extra layer of protection to your investment, you’ll want to make sure it remains intact. For instance, if you own a GAF roofing system, you should work with a GAF Certified Master Elite® roofing contractor like American Roofing & Construction, LLC for its repairs. We have the necessary training and expertise to handle any issues related to this type of roof, ensuring that its solution will adhere to the manufacturers’ quality specifications.
3. Roof repairs done by a professional won’t take long. The fact is that DIY roof repairs require a significant amount of time and effort. You’ll need to assess the roof’s overall condition, identify the problem areas, buy the necessary materials and perform the work itself. All of these can take up an entire weekend, especially if you have a large roof. And when the DIY repair doesn’t pan out? You’ll need to do all of those things over again. But if you work with a professional like American Roofing & Construction, LLC, time won’t be an issue. We can complete your roof repairs in a timely and efficient manner so you can go back to your normal routine without needing to worry about a leaky roof.
