In the age of Google, it can be difficult to believe that quick projects like roof repair can’t be pulled off successfully on a DIY basis. If the process can be Googled, then the job can be done, right? Turns out this isn’t quite the case. Below are some of the reasons why it’s still a good idea to work with Chico roofing contractors:
- You could injure yourself.
Roofing work isn’t just dangerous because it’s done several feet off the ground; it’s also dangerous because it’s exhausting. The combination of the two can be deadly. Also:
Researchers at Columbus Children’s Hospital’s Center for Injury Research and Policy (CIRP) in Ohio analyzed national data.
They found that more than 2.1 million people were treated in hospital emergency departments for ladder-related injuries from 1990 to 2005. That averages out to more than 136,000 cases a year.
You do not want to become part of that statistic.
- You could botch things up.
There is a reason why “trained” and “experienced” are common buzzwords for roofers. They matter. No matter how good you are at following instructions, you could still make a dangerous and/or costly mistake. And when that happens…
- You could end up spending more.
What you imagined you’d save on labor you might end up spending (with interest) on real repairs. Why? If you botched the job or missed a spot, you’ll need a roofer to come in and fix things for you. More bad news: If you bought your tools and materials out of pocket, you’re probably not going to get your money back.
