Dangers Of DIY Roofing

When improving your home, people are always trying to save some money. Whether that be by choosing a contractor with a lower bid or trying to take on a project by yourself. When it comes to roofing, that is one area of the house you should ensure it’s handled the right way. Rather than trying to tackle a roofing project on your own, here are some of the main reasons that you should hire a licensed and experienced team like Capital Construction.

Safety Risks: 

One of the first things to understand is that roofing is dangerous and it has its fair share of safety risks. From hauling materials up to your roof, to moving around, there are so many precautionary steps that our team follows to ensure the safety of our contractors. The risk of slipping or falling off of your roof is simply not worth it.

Inexperienced Work: 

Chances are that the work you complete on a roof will be far less precise compared to a professional. If you fix or install your roof on your own, any mishaps could result in a faulty system. All roofing work needs to be completed properly and not doing so will simply result in a waste of time and money.


Roofing contractors and manufacturers usually have warranties included in your contract. If someone else is to work on your roof, it could potentially void the warranty in place.

Low-Quality Materials: 

Contractors like Capital Construction have special access to really high-quality materials. People that do roofing work on their own often don’t know what shingles are truly best for their roof. Even if the installation of the shingles was done correctly, in the long run, it may affect your roofing system.
