It may seem like a good idea to do your own roof. It could save you a buck here and there after all. However, it may end up costing you more to do the roofing yourself in the end. In this video, you will learn why this is the case.
One of the main issues with doing roofing yourself is lack of knowledge on building codes. Residential roofing professionals have the experience and knowledge to make sure your roofing is up to par with the law. Even if they don’t and do it wrong, they would be obligated to fix it for you.
If you make this same mistake yourself, you would be out a huge chunk of change. There are a surprising number of laws that you may need to be aware of. For example, roofs with a slope under a certain number of degrees will need to use a material other than shingles such as metal sheets. Further, there are a number of laws regarding skylights. It can get complicated very quickly for those who don’t have experience in the roofing industry. This is just one of many reasons you should hire a professional.
