Professional Roofing Company vs. DIY Roof

When your New River Valley roof needs work, it can be tempting to try to do it yourself. At first glance, laying shingles or fixing a leak doesn’t seem too hard, and there are probably some DIY roof videos on youtube you could reference…. While DIY is a great option for many things, roofing is not one of them. Here are several reasons why: 

Roofing is Dangerous

Roofing is one of the top 5 most dangerous industries in North America – and for a good reason. You are working on a steep and often slippery roof, between 12-25 feet above the ground. Losing your balance or taking one wrong step is all it takes to fall and seriously injure yourself. A professional roofing company like Cenvar Roofing negates these risks by using state of the art fall protection systems. This protects our roofers, and your home, from any risk of falling and ensures that the job is done quickly, safely, and risk-free. 

Roofing is Hard

Your roof is something that you really shouldn’t notice from the ground, and not many people do – unless it looks a little bit off. Roofers have years of experience laying shingles according to manufacturer’s specifications and making sure that they look beautiful and perform properly every time. When someone with little or no experience attempts to lay shingles, it’s difficult to lay them well, and often the evidence can be seen from the ground. Even worse, improperly installed shingles will not keep the water out.  A roof not installed exactly to manufacturer’s specifications is much more likely to leak. Choosing a professional roofing company will give you professional looking results, and a beautiful roof that will keep you dry for years to come. 

Professional Roofers Can Identify Signs of Damage

Whether it’s a repair or a replacement, professional roofers have experience with all types of water and shingle damage, and can perform an inspection to make sure that none is present on your roof. A DIY roof job may miss some important signs of damage and risk that damage becoming a bigger problem later on.
