DIY Roofing Fails

The following are some DIY Roofing Fails…

Inspecting for damage and doing even more damage: It always sounds like a good idea to inspect your own roof, but that is often a mistake that leads to common roofing fails. Sometimes walking on flashings and certain shingles can cause damage or more leaks. It is best to keep it off the roof if possible. 

Replacing Shingles and Ruining the Roof: Shingles may seem like a simple thing to replace, but there is a ton of experience that is involved. Many DIY’ers tend to nail new shingles over old shingles, which can easily ruin a roof. 

Covering Up Vents and Damaging Your Attic: Your attic needs to be vented to help with moisture and condensation. Covering them up can create serious moisture damage. 

Ignoring Permits and Getting Violations: Sometimes, even for just a roof repair, you need to have a permit. There are also certain building codes that you have to be aware of to make sure your home would pass any necessary inspections. 

Ignoring Safety and Injuring Yourself: DIY projects like roofing always involve danger. You could be seriously injured or even killed if you fall from your roof. Homeowners tend to find out the hard way about this year after year.
