If you own a home in Denver, CO, and you consider yourself to be on the handy side, you may be wondering if you really need to hire an experienced roofer to help with repairs or a replacement.
Sure, you may be able to pull a few how-to videos off the Internet, but the benefits of hiring an experienced professional far outweigh any cost savings that might come with doing the work yourself.
You’re likely to make mistakes
Let’s say you’re an accountant, and while you’re on your way to work one day, you realize it’s time to replace the brakes on your car. Is this the type of thing you’d attempt to do on your own? We’re guessing the answer is no. First, there’s no guarantee the work will be done right and second, there’s a chance you might damage something that wasn’t broken to begin with. This type of repair is best handled by an experienced professional who knows how to get the job done safely and efficiently.
You can think of your roof in the same way. When it comes time for roof replacement in Denver, there are a lot of things that can go wrong. If the work isn’t done correctly, you may find yourself dealing with leaks, mold, mildew and in some cases, a bug infestation (bugs love damp, dark places.) The biggest problem with this, is that the damage may take a long time to become evident. Should this happen, you’ll need to spend thousands of dollars to have the repair handled properly.
Any cost savings you may have achieved on the front end, will be blown away on the back end.
You won’t have a warranty to fall back on
When you hire an experienced, licensed roofer you’ll receive a warranty on workmanship and materials. Materials manufacturers don’t honor this type of warranty when someone does DIY roof replacement. The reason for this is simple- they’re going to assume the work wasn’t done correctly and as such, that repairs and/or a full replacement will be needed.
You run the risk of serious injury
Denver roofers know how to get jobs done right and they know how to get jobs done safely. Why? Because the contractors do this type of work every day, every month and all year long. Each year, thousands of people wind up in the emergency room after they accidentally injure themselves while attempting a DIY home repair. Medical bills can be expensive, especially for the uninsured or under insured.
