The Dangers of Repairing Your Own Roof

So you are dealing with a small leak or a few cracked shingles. Many homeowners believe they can save more money by opting for do-it-yourself roof repairs, which can lead to new problems down the road.

Repairing Your Own Roof

One of the leading roof and window installation companies in Boston reveals the risks of do-it-yourself roof repairs in this post.

It Can Cost You a Lot More

When repairing a roof, you need to use the correct number of nails and nail down the shingles in the correct places. With subpar craftsmanship, shingles are susceptible to blow-offs when exposed to high winds. This can cause your roof to sustain more damage than when you first attempted to fix it, leading you to hire a professional and paying a larger fee.

You Will Void Your Warranty

Similar to window manufacturers, roofing manufacturers usually offer warranties on their products — given that their products are installed by qualified professionals and according to proper application instructions. If you choose to repair your roof on your own, you risk voiding your warranty as a result.

Work Can Be Delayed

It takes time to inspect roof issues. Sometimes, it’s just acquiring all the necessary tools to start and finish the job. The same work that takes certified roofers two to three days to perform can take regular homeowners several weeks to complete. In the end, delays in the project lead to more inconvenience and costs.
