Installing a new roof on your own may seem like a good idea, especially if you have any construction experience. Nevertheless, in the long run it may prove to be wiser and more cost-efficient to hire a roofing company for this kind of job.
While merely replacing a few shingles or fixing the gutter can sometimes be an easy task for homeowners, installing a new roof is often a very complex project, which requires a lot of investment, and it is essential to start it on the right foot.
Professional roofers know all the details regarding the roof decking, how it needs to be done, how much weight it can take, and many other important things which cannot be guessed or estimated by non-professionals. In case you install your roof wrongly, the replacement costs may be higher, and you will eventually have to pay more than you would have paid if you had taken the classic path, of having your roof installed by a professional roofer.
At the same time, most roofing manufacturers refuse to offer warranty for roofs which have not been installed by a professional Dallas roofing contractor team. In other words, by installing the roof on your own, you risk to void your roofing warranty.
