Top 5 Reasons to Leave Roof Repair to Professionals

With increasingly accessible instructions available online, it’s certainly tempting to do your own roof repair. But as professional roofers, we can say from experience that roof repairs are one of those projects best left to professionals. Here’s why.

  1. Roof Repair Is Dangerous – The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, in a 2015 report, stated that as many as 350 out of the reported 937 construction-related injuries that year alone were due to falls from the roof. Working on steep roofs requires not just the right equipment, but also extensive training and safety practices. Ultimately, we want you and your family to enjoy the benefits of your roof without worrying about insurance and hospital bills.

  2. Professionals Are Insured – Speaking of insurance, professional roofing contractors have workers’ compensation. So, in the unlikely event that something happens despite our safety precautions, you will not be held liable for it. You should make it a point to ask contractors about workers’ compensation, along with general liability insurance, before you hire them.

  3. DIY Repairs Could Void Existing Roofing Warranties – If your roof is still within warranty, doing repairs on your own could void your coverage. Today’s roofing warranties have this condition so it’s often best to have professional roofers fix your roof. Plus, professional roofers have (or should have) a separate workmanship warranty in case the repair work fails.

  4. Professional Roofer Equals Professional Quality – Professionals have the right equipment and skills to fix your roof and keep it looking good. At DryTech Roofing, we receive constant training and access to the latest tools and repair methods, so when you hire us to fix your roof, you can expect flawless, professional-quality repair work.

  5. Professionally Repaired Roofs Can Last Longer – We professionals don’t just go ahead and fix the apparent problem; we proactively inspect the rest of the roof and fix any other issue that we find. Addressing potential problems, instead of waiting for problems to manifest themselves, helps extend your roof’s lifespan. With regular repairs and maintenance, you can enjoy a fully-functioning roof beyond its expected lifespan.
