No matter how simple they may seem, you should ALWAYS leave roof repairs to pros. You can absorb all DIY manuals you can find, but nothing could erase the fact that the job is highly technical and perilous. While skipping professional service may reduce your overall expenses, your safety is far more valuable than any amount of savings you could get.
Apart from the risk factor, Krech Exteriors shares other sensible reasons to hire pros for roofing repair projects:
Not All Pros Know How to Repair
Believe it or not, not all roofers have the necessary proficiency to carry out repairs. If some professionals can do it, you shouldn’t feel confident climbing your roof to nail shingles. Specialized skills are imperative to carry out the job, which is why some companies aren’t set up to repair certain roofing products, let alone materials.
In the region, Krech Exteriors is one of the few roofing repair contractors that also know how to re-roof asphalt shingle systems. With our GAF Master Elite™ designation, you can rest assured that we have strong credentials to inspect and service your faulty roof.
A Bad Job Could Lead to a Costlier Fix
If you lack deep technical expertise and state-of-the-art equipment to repair asphalt shingle roofing systems, then you’re likely to make things worse. Your inexperience and unpreparedness could spell disaster. You might compound the problem and ultimately call professionals for help. In the end, you might spend more money than you’re supposed to if you haven’t taken matters into your own hands.
Repairs Help Keep Your Warranty Valid
Read the fine print: you’d see that your roofing warranty spells out maintenance duties, which you’re in charge of. Such upkeep requirements include routine roof inspections and timely repairs. If you fail to do your own share in keeping your roof in good shape, your warranty might not bail you out when you need it.
Let Krech Exteriors help you preserve your roof’s structural soundness and make it serviceable for as long as possible. We provide regular maintenance and emergency repair services to give your roofing system the care and attention it requires.
