You may notice one or two missing shingles from your residential roofing system, and you may think that since you have a few extras lying around that wouldn’t it be quite easy to fix it up yourself? Unless you’re an expert of home roofing, you may want to leave the repairs and replacement to the professionals.
CMS Roofing discusses why.
Your Roof Isn’t Such a Simple Thing
You can never predict how your roof can handle weather or even the occasional thrown toy or ball. Eventually, your shingles may show wear and tear, or they may need actual replacement. Just slapping the shingles on without the expertise of a roofing professional can actually even endanger the whole roof as it gives wind, rain and other problems a way into your home.
Professional roofers have undergone safety training, to which you may not have access. Risking yourself by climbing on your roof is just a disaster waiting to happen, especially if you have none of the safety equipment the professionals use.
The Professional Advantage
Sure, you can grab a few extra shingles and search the internet on how to repair your roof. But, it won’t be something you can bank your insurance nor rely on.
Roofing contractors are the best people to do any repair work your roof. They know which finishes, coating, techniques and tools are the best to use with your particular roofing system. Roofers are also able to provide certifications, warranties and more value for your repair. In addition, GAF Master Elite® roofers like us know everything about your shingles and the best way to approach your repairs. What’s more, repairs done by licensed roofers won’t void insurance policies.
