While roofs are designed to be tough and durable in order to protect the structures underneath them from damage, they are not immune to damage or wear themselves and will require repairs from time to time. If your roof has been damaged, we at Hicks Residential Roofing strongly encourage you to hire professional roofers to repair it rather than attempting to do so yourself.
We have extensive experience in the roofing industry, and we can confidently say that trained professionals will deliver better results in less time than even the most skilled DIYer. Our team wants to help you take the best possible care of your roof, so in this article, we’ll be going over some of the reasons why we recommend that you leave roofing repair to the pros.
- Convenience- One reason why we recommend leaving roofing repair to the pros is because it’s simply more convenient that way. Fixing a roof is highly labor-intensive, and the work itself is seriously uncomfortable. Hiring professionals like ourselves will let you get the top-notch results you deserve without having to leave the comfort of your home.
- Safety- In addition to being uncomfortable, working on roofs is also seriously risky from a safety standpoint because they are so high off the ground. Even among experienced roofers, the rate of on-the-job accidents is one of the highest of any industry, which means that untrained DIYers are even more at risk. Our team knows how to minimize the risks and keep ourselves as safe as possible, and we recommend you do the same by hiring trained professionals for your roofing repair needs.
- Warranty and Insurance- A third reason to leave roofing repair to the pros is that it prevents you from running into any problems with your roof’s warranty or homeowners’ insurance. Both of these protections typically require any work to be done by licensed professionals—in other words, a manufacturer’s warranty on your shingles will probably be voided if you install them yourself, and if you accidentally damage your roof while trying to repair it, your insurance may not cover that damage.
