One of the most common mistakes we experience when working on roofs are damages made by homeowners. We understand some damages can be fixed if you’re usually a handy type person in the house but unless you’re a professional roofer, some things should be left as they are. Here are the common mistakes homeowners make with their roof.
Doing it yourself with no experience.
This is a bad idea from the start. No matter how many tutorials you’ve watched trying to repair your roof with no experience is very dangerous. Roofing is not something you can pick up in a matter of hours; it’s a skill developed over time, best understood only by someone who’s been doing this for over 50 years like E.M. Snow, Inc. Other encounters we face from homeowners are unfinished projects; this could be due to many reasons like suffering from an injury, problems occurring mid-project, or even overspending their budget because it was more affordable doing it yourself than hiring a professional.
Hiring an inexperienced roofing contractor.
Upgrading your roof is one of the biggest investment you will have to make. Taking the time to research for a reliable and trustworthy contractor is highly recommended. However, due to cost, homeowners opt to work with contractors that are cheaper which in result leave them with a poor job and will have to pay even more to fix the damages when it could have been prevented at the very beginning. Think about the long-run not the short.
Buying cheaper materials.
Your roofing contractor will have the best knowledge on what type of shingles that not only look visually pleasing but also fits within your budget. Although, you may come across some great deals online or brochures, keep in mind, that your roofing contractor will be the ones who will be installing them. They have the years of experience of installing and replacing all types of materials to determine which products are highly rated for your Massachusetts home.
