The Dangers of DIY Roof Repair After a Storm
While it’s satisfying doing work around your home, some parts are still better left to the professionals. The roof is one of them. It’s a critical part of your home and one of the most dangerous places for a person to be, especially after a storm.
KAT Construction, LLC, your storm restoration specialists, discusses the dangers of doing DIY roof repair after a storm.
The Roof Is Slippery
Roof repair is risky work even for professionals, which is why we make use of safety harnesses and other equipment. Your roof is also slippery and the fact that it may have incurred water damage makes treading on it even more dangerous.
You’ll never really know how flimsy your roof is until you actually step on it, and you should never take that risk. When it comes to storm damage roof repair, it’s best left to experts like us.
Improper Roof Repair Is Even More Dangerous
Storm damage that you don’t repair properly will end up worse. Since the roof doesn’t exactly tell you outright when it’s in poor condition, it’s easy to miss red flags such as leaks. This particular roofing problem can fly under the radar easily and can make a storm-damaged roof even weaker.
When you work with an experienced roofing company, they’ll be able to spot these warnings signs and address them before they become bigger and more expensive concerns.
DIY Repair Voids Warranties
Finally, keep in mind that all roofs come with a warranty that covers things like manufacturing defects, labor, or both. They come with fine print that states that the warranty itself will become null and void if someone other than a qualified or certified roofer performs any work on it. This applies to storm damage. To avoid unintentionally voiding your warranty, seek help from an experienced and certified roofer like us.
