Everyone likes to save money when they can- but if you’ve come to the conclusion that it’s time to repair or replace the roof on your SWFL home, this is the type of job you’ll want to leave to an expert.

If you find yourself wondering “how hard could this be,” or you think you can figure it out by watching a few YouTube videos, think again. Repairing or replacing a roof isn’t the same as unclogging a garbage disposal. If you’re not a licensed roofer who has experience in working with the types of materials that you have atop your home, this isn’t a job you should attempt yourself.

Below are just a few of the reasons you should hire a professional.

DIY roof repair won’t come with a warranty

When you work with professional roofers, you’ll receive warranties for the materials and the workmanship. If you attempt the job yourself, you won’t have either.  The manufacturer of the roofing materials won’t offer a warranty if they think the job wasn’t done right—and if you’re not a professional roofer, they’ll assume the installation was faulty.

You could make mistakes you might not realize it until it’s too late

Roofs that aren’t repaired correctly can experience leaks- especially if the flashing isn’t installed properly. And again, just because you don’t see visible leaks in the days or weeks after you complete the work, that’s not to say they aren’t there. When you make mistakes installing or repairing your roof, those mistakes can be quite costly to fix.

You could get hurt

Roofing contractors in Naples, FL understand how to repair and replace SWFL roofing systems safely. They also know how to get the job done faster and more efficiently than someone who has never done this type of work before. For example, whereas the average roof replacement can take between 3-4 days, if you attempt to do the job yourself, it could take a lot longer. This can be especially problematic if a storm rolls in before you’re done!
