DIY vs. Professional Roof Replacement

For many homeowners, it is a point of great pride that they care for their property personally, taking care of upkeep, repairs and maintenance, and even home improvements themselves. There are countless sources for inspiration and instruction on how to complete all these different household jobs, from fixing a leak to remodeling a bathroom, and the DIY-craze has never been stronger. With good reason, too, if performed correctly, you can save money and gain a real sense of accomplishment making these improvements yourself. However, there are some jobs that are simply too big, too dangerous, and too difficult for most people to complete on their own, and therefore should not be attempted. Such projects, if done improperly or without the proper technique and equipment, can waste tremendous amounts of your time and money, result in damage to your home, and put your own personal safety at risk. For projects like this, it is strongly advised that you seek professional help and guidance from the very beginning, to ensure the job is done correctly, safely, and in a timely manner. One job that certainly fits into this category is replacing your roof, which requires a great amount of knowledge, experience, and equipment to do the right way. That’s where CLI Construction in Albuquerque comes in!

What You Can DIY & When You Need a Professional
You may be able to make small repairs to your roof on your own, such replacing a few broken or missing shingles, but for most other work your roof will need, it is highly recommended to let a professional Albuquerque roofer take a look at it. For issues such as several leaks in different parts of your roof, many broken or missing shingles, deep-set rotting, or simply having a roof that is more than 20–30 years old, it is best practice to have a professional roof inspection and repair or replacement conducted as soon as possible. 

After a roofing inspection, the roofer can make their best recommendation on how to proceed, from making repairs to replacing the roof entirely. If you decide to have a roof replacement, a professional roofer will be able to guide you in deciding on the best material and style of roof for your home and budget, and can install it quickly and safely so you don’t have to spend too much time worrying about your home.
