It pays to keep a level head when making decisions about your home’s roof. Often, what seems like a solid DIY roofing project can actually end up being a bigger hassle and costing you more in the long run. As you contemplate the best options for your roof, consider these two DIY roofing problems to avoid.
DIY at All
Unless you have some experience with roof replacement, repair, or installation, you would be better off not taking the DIY roofing route at all. As with so many household projects, roofing is not as easy as it looks. Trained roofers know exactly what needs to be done and exactly how to do it. Aspects of the project that might never even cross your mind are second nature to the guys who spend their days on the roof.
The whole process is also more dangerous than many people realize. Experts know how to stay safe and stable on a pitched roof. They have access to the necessary safety equipment.
Equipment in general can also be a problem for the DIY roofing project. What starts off as a way to save a few dollars on a roof installation turns into multiple trips to the hardware store to buy or rent equipment needed to do the job properly.
In the end, you might end up paying the professionals more to fix the problems that you created trying to save on expenses. Better to let us here at Vanguard do it right for you the first time.
Buying Your Own Materials
No doubt, with some savvy research an average homeowner can find some great deals on equipment and materials. Part of the problem, though, is knowing just what to acquire. The experts, though, know exactly what and how much a project is going to need.
Established companies like Vanguard enjoy long-standing relationships with suppliers. Because the professionals are buying more (and more often), they will almost always have access to the most affordable pricing.
