When it’s time to replace your roof, it’s tempting to do it on your own. Many property owners see this as a money-saving tactic, unaware that DIY roof replacement actually ends up costing more in the long run. Creative Construction Group, Inc. explains why when it comes to residential and commercial roof replacement, it’s best left to the professionals.
Roof Replacement Is Dangerous
The roof may seem sturdy enough to tread on when you look at it from the curb, but it’s not necessarily giving you the full picture. That sturdy surface may have considerable structural damage underneath, which can be deadly if you tread on it.
As part of our residential roof installation services, we do a full inspection on your roof so we can determine its true condition. We also come with all the necessary equipment and tools to ensure a safe replacement project.
Roof Installation Requires Skill
Although tearing out the old roof only requires some strength and elbow grease on your part, actually installing the new system requires skill that you’ll only get from years of experience installing roofs. It’s also imperative that your new roof gets installed quickly to protect it from the elements which takes skill as well.
Poor Installation Is Costly
Keep in mind that the roof is a complex structure made up of different parts acting as one cohesive unit. There’s a lot to assess and keep in mind and it can get mind-boggling just thinking of all its parts.
The sheer complexity and scope of the roof means it’s easy for DIYers to miss a critical component of the roof like the underlayment or flashings. This can end up as a costly mistake. For example, failing to repair the wooden structures of the roof before you replace it means that you’ll end up with a “new” roof that’s not as durable and plagued with structural problems, making its life span shorter than most.
