The Dangers of DIY Roofing Projects                                             

Jul 18, 2022

There may come a point when you realize that your roof requires your attention. Maybe it’s time to replace your old roof with a new one. Maybe you need to replace a missing shingle. Or maybe you need to address a leak.

Even if it sounds simple to you, there’s nothing easy about a DIY roofing project. Even the most basic of projects can turn into something much more complex. Furthermore, it’s dangerous to climb onto a roof unless you know exactly what you’re doing.

Here are some of the top dangers:

  • Slip and fall: If you slip and fall while working on a roof, there’s a good chance you’ll fall to the ground below. This can cause serious injury or death. The risk of falling should be enough for you to avoid this type of project.
  • Fall through the roof: You may not think this is a concern, but it’s possible you could fall through your roof into your home. Not only does this cause damage to your property, but it can also result in serious injury.
  • Back or neck injury: For example, there’s nothing easy about getting shingles onto a roof. Just the same, the physical labor associated with a roofing project is nothing to take light. With so much strain on your back and neck, an injury is possible.

If you want to avoid the potential dangers above – among others – it’s best to consult with a roofing contractor.
