These days, there’s practically no project you can’t find a tutorial for online. But if you’ve ever tried to recreate a professional cake or art project, you may have learned that following a tutorial doesn’t always equate to a professional level of work.


When your roof shows signs of needing repairs, it might be tempting to save a few bucks and take on the project yourself. But one thing we’ve learned at J&J Roofing in Roseville is that DIY roof repairs can often lead to added trouble and expense down the road. In this blog post, we’ll talk about why you’re better off hiring a professional to handle your roof maintenance or repairs. Give us a call to schedule your professional roof repair project today.


Here are the top reasons to hire a professional:

1.   DIY Repairs Can Void Your Warranty.

One of the key benefits of working with a professional roofing contractor is that your products and work are going to be warrantied. If there’s an issue with the quality of roofing materials or work, your warranty will cover it.


When you DIY your own roofing project, on the other hand, you can risk voiding your existing warranty. Any savings you may have enjoyed from taking the project on yourself can be overshadowed by the expense of having to pay for future repairs yourself.

2.   Roofing Can Be Dangerous.

Professional roofers may look completely at ease on top of a roof, but that doesn’t mean you should underestimate the risk of personal injury when doing it yourself. Even the most sure-footed homeowners can lose their footing on a roofing slope. Roofing repairs also require you to transport materials and tools on a roof that can easily shift and cause you to fall.


Professional roofers have the knowledge and training to get the job done safely. This means they’re able to get the job done faster without risking their safety.

3.   There’s No Substitute for Professional Workmanship.

There are plenty of jobs that make good DIY projects. However, anything less than professional workmanship on your roof can compromise its safety and structural integrity, costing you more down the road. An experienced roofing contractor will take steps to prevent leaks that lead to mold and mildew proliferation and use the best roofing materials to protect your home.
