Many people decide they want to repair their roof in Boise. We cringe at the mere thought of this because it’s dangerous. We hate that people take this risk, so we thought of writing a blog on the safety concerns people need to understand. We just hope people will heed our warnings.
Hazard #1: Incorrectly Fixing Roof Problems
When you fix a roof problem, it’s important it is done correctly. If not, the problem may get worse to the point of caving in on the people inside of it. If you’re lucky, the problem will just resurface, but bigger situations can arise that will cost you a lot of time and money. Mold is a common problem missed by do-it-yourself roofers.
It usually end up being less cost effective to fix your own roof when you don’t have the experience, tools, and materials. Leave it to the experts, so you know for sure roof repairs will be done right.
Hazard #2: Safety Risks
Falling off of the roof is a huge risk to take when doing your own roofing repairs. Think of your job, your family, and everyone who depends on you each day. Can you afford the major injuries that come from such an accident? If you can, you can probably afford a roofer!
Experience in roofing also provides a better knowledge of more subtle risks: soft spots in the roof where you could fall through, knowing where mold is to avoid exposure, avoiding misuse of equipment and materials, and even knowing how to spot and avoid common roofing pests like bees and wasps.
Hazard #3: Possible Warranty Problems
Many warranties that come with roofs require people to use professional roofers for repairs. If you don’t use them, you could end up with a voided warranty that will make you upset if something catastrophic happens that could have been covered by it.
Hazard #4: Low Quality Materials
It’s likely if you’re thinking of repairing a roof yourself, you want to save money. This mindset can lead you to buying low quality materials as well. Don’t do it. Low quality materials means you’ll likely have to repair your roof many more times or have it replaced much sooner than you want. Let roofing experts advise you in new and cost effective materials so you can get the most out of your new renovation.
