08 Dec Why you should leave roof maintenance to the professionals
The roof over your head is one of the most important things you’ll ever have.
Thus, is its structural integrity, or its weatherproofing ability, worth risking with unskilled work? In our opinion, the answer is a resounding no.
Roof maintenance should always be left to the professionals. And by professionals, we mean competent, experienced roofers who guarantee their work.
Here’s 4 reasons why you should leave your roof maintenance to the professionals:
Safety is of paramount importance when roofing. The person doing the job will be working at height, which is one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries in the roofing industry. Professional roofers use safety harnesses and scaffolding on tricky jobs – amateurs don’t, which increases the risk to life and health considerably.
Of course, you want your roofing work to be done correctly. When specified and fitted correctly, roofing materials will last for many years. However, roofing materials that aren’t will fail prematurely. The old mantra “buy cheap, buy twice” rings true with roof maintenance, so always pay that bit extra for a professional job.
Professional roofing companies, including ourselves, offer a guarantee on work. We, for example, use products that have a guarantee and we guarantee our workmanship for years after completion. If you do have a problem with your roof after work has been completed, a guarantee offers reassurance that it will be fixed free of charge.
4. Industry know-how
Perhaps the biggest advantage of a professional roofer over an amateur, is the professional’s industry knowledge. A professional will be able to recommend products and fixes for a roof that an amateur knows nothing about. This can pay dividends on projects that can go horrible wrong, such as flat roofs and Velux window installation.
