Calgary Roofing: Why DIY roofing can be a DI-don’t
Another serious reason you should not attempt to fix your own roof is that it generally ends up costing a lot more than it should. Significantly more than it would cost to hire a professional Calgary roofer. In addition.
As Calgarian’s we pride ourselves on being independent, hands-on, DIY types. We don’t mind rolling up our sleeves and getting our hands a little dirty. Nine of out ten times, this a great quality to have. The other times, it can be a bit problematic. DIY Calgary roof repairs can be one of those times. Flat roofing Calgary is a tricky task that comes with its own unique challenges.
Safety is the first problem that can arise when venturing on a DIY roofing mission. Whether your roof is metal, cedar shakes or tile there are numerous hazards that we can easily overlook. It is very likely that you are strong and have great balance, heck; it’s probably not even your first rodeo. All that being said, without appropriate gear and safety harnesses, roofing is a dangerous job, even for a professional Calgary roofer. Another serious reason you should not attempt to fix your own roof is that it generally ends up costing a lot more than it should. Significantly more than it would cost to hire a professional Calgary roofer. In addition, DIY roofing projects aren’t typically covered by insurance, so if something goes wrongit comes out of your own pocket. Not only does it cost you more in the long run, but it also costs you valuable time, and energy. Time and energy, which could be spent on other DIY projects, ones that don’t risk you breaking your back. One little mistake, can lead to hours of work in effort to fix that mistake, or worse, all of the hours already spent creating that mistake are gone to waste. You may consider yourselves the next best thing to (or sometimes even better than) the professionals, but if you’re honest with yourself, roofing is not an easy trade and self-roofing projects rarely result in perfection. So, don’t risk the headache you create for yourself by attempting DIY roof repairs only to end up with a subpar final product.
Roof repairs may seem like an easy task, but when you notice damage, such as a leak, a cracked tile or broken shingle, there may be a chance that what you are seeing is only the tip of the iceberg. Usually when a leak is noticeable inside the house or building, it is a sign that there is a bigger problem happening where you can’t see it. Not to mention the seemingly simple act of walking on your roof can cause serious damage in and of itself.
