Is DIY Roofing Worth It?

Your roof is a majorly important part of your house, and if something goes wrong, it can be expensive to get it fixed. Because of that, you may want to try to fix it yourself rather than hiring experienced Newnan roofers to do the job. That would be a bad idea, as DIY roofing is definitely not worth it.

Improper installation

Many do-it-yourselfers don’t really know what they are doing and wind up installing something wrong or doing a poor job on a renovation. In many cases, the only thing lost is that something looks bad or you might get a door that doesn’t look right. If you DIY your roof, though, you could wind up with major problems. A roof that’s not done properly could be more prone to leak or to fail in a storm, which could cause major damage to your home. Plus, if you do a poor job on your roof, it’s not just you who sees it: the whole neighborhood does.

Safety issue

Good roofing companies properly train employees in industry standard safety precautions, so they take care of themselves while working on a roof. A do-it-yourselfer may not know proper safety precautions, which could lead to serious injury. On just a one story home, a pitched roof can be as high as high as 15-20 feet in spots, and a fall from that height can easily cause broken bones or a serious head injury. That kind of risk is not really worth saving a few dollars.

No recourse

If you repair or replace your roof and it has problems, your only option is to try to fix it again or call a Newnan roofer. However, if you have it done right by a professional the first time by professional, you will have a less of a chance of something going wrong.

If you have a roof that is damaged or failing, whether because of storm damage or just age-related wear and tear, Eagle Watch Roofing, your local roofers in Newnan, GA, are standing by ready to help you.
