Nothing feels more rewarding than being able to fix up your own house and save a couple of dollars. With the help of Youtube and DIY videos, homeowners find it convenient to work on things themselves. These videos make it look simple to fix these issues, and sometimes that may be the case. Not all houses are simple and easy to fix; one misstep can cause huge damage when it comes to roofing. If you’re trying to save money, it’s important to know if DIY vs. professional roofing replacement is the right solution.

DIY Roofing Replacement

If you plan on doing a DIY roof replacement, it’s only wise to do so if the repair work is minor. Minor issues can be things such as a loose shingle or sealing a roof leak. Most of the time, these repairs can be done without risking your safety or further damaging your roof. DIY tutorials can’t train you enough to prepare for issues that may be bigger than what you can handle. Moreover, the issues you are trying to solve may not be as straightforward as you think.

If you were to repair or replace any part of your roof yourself, your home insurance will likely not cover it. They may deny any damage claims due to negligence and can result in you paying out of pocket.

Professional Roofing

On the other hand, a professional roofing contractor should be hired if your whole roof needs to be replaced or repaired. 

When it comes to replacing a whole roof, various technicalities shouldn’t be done on your own. Hiring a professional is always a sure way to get things done right. Professional roofers will have the expertise, knowledge, and equipment to ensure the roof is repaired properly.

When you hire a professional roofing company, they will conduct a thorough inspection of your roof and advise if anything else needs to be done. Professional roofers usually have their repairs or replacements covered by warranties. You’d have peace of mind if anything were to go wrong within the time span of the warranty agreement.
