If you’re used to DIY-ing home improvement projects and you’re keen on fixing your roof on your own, you might want to reconsider and think about the consequences of a DIY repair. Roof repair is meant to be done by qualified professionals due to safety concerns and any surprise complications that may arise.

Voided Warranty

Roofing warranties typically cover labor and manufacturing defects for a specified period. But when you perform a DIY repair on your roofing, this will likely void your warranty and you’ll lose the protection for your roof system. To ensure that your roof will remain covered by your warranty, make sure that a qualified roofer will perform any work that needs to be done on your roofing.

Safety Hazards

Roofing contractors typically have protocols in place, ensuring that the workers and clients will be safe while repairs are ongoing. Keep in mind that roofing jobs generally come with dangers since it requires the use of a ladder and work is done on the roof. Accidents can happen if safety measures aren’t strictly followed.

Substandard Workmanship

Roof repairs often involve complex processes, and they require a specific set of skills and knowledge for the job to be done correctly. With years of training and experience, roofing experts can guarantee consistent and quality results that are usually difficult to replicate if the person doing the work is inexperienced or an amateur.

Whether it’s roof replacement or repair, you can count on SCI to deliver quality work.
