Protecting the investment you’ve made in your home is critical. There’s nothing that can make a small problem even bigger than trying to remedy it by using DIY, Internet-searched instructions. Especially when you’re looking at something as major as a roof.   Trusting a professional roofing contractor is important for a number of reasons. Here are the top 3.

Dangerous Heights

The first and most obvious reason that going up on the roof is a bad idea, to begin with, is because of the height dangers. The risk for a fall is simply too great.  Not to mention that it’s hard to get a footing on a pitched roof than one may think. Professional roofers are geared with the right shoes and protective gear, as well as the know-how, to navigate the dangerous areas. It is worth your own safety to leave this job to the pros.

Accidental Damage

Since you don’t really know what you’re doing, there is also a greater chance that you could end up doing more damage than good to your roof trying to do the job yourself. Replacing a few loose roof shingles seems easy enough but there is so much more to the job than removing and replacing them. In the process, you may tear into other layers beneath it and compromise the entire roof, cause leaks inside the home– or worse.

Voided Warranties

If none of the previous reasons were enough to make you think twice about hiring a professional for your roof needs, then perhaps the fact that you could void material warranties may convince you. That’s right many times the extended warranties offered for shingles and materials are only void if they are handled, maintained and installed by a certified pro. Do you really want to have to start all the way from the beginning again? Don’t risk it. Call in professionals for quality craftsmanship and a roof that lasts.
