Generally, you can save money by doing things on your own rather than hiring a professional. This allows you to save money on labor, pick out your own materials, and do the project on your own convenience. These are great reasons to ditch the contractors. However, you may want to think twice. Do you really have enough know-how to get the job done right? More importantly, can you work on your roof safely? Your life is worth more than the cost savings.
You may want to consider hiring a trustworthy roofing company after all. Don’t think roofing is potentially perilous? Check out this video of some of the most dangerous roofing moments.
If your roof is especially steep compared to the average roof, this could be reason enough to hire a roofing company. Steep roughs can be particularly difficult to work on. They may require additional safety precautions such as harnesses. Professional roofers also know how to deal with strong winds and storms. Part of the video shows just how powerful winds can be. A crane is carrying materials up to a roofer. However, the platform is blowing from side to side in the wind.
