DIYs – do-it-yourself projects – are very popular, and it can be tempting to try to fix issues on your roof without ever getting a contractor involved. Professional repairs can be expensive, and it’s understandable to want to avoid spending a lot of money. But attempting to do it yourself on a roof is almost never a good idea – roofers are professionally trained to work on roofs and to look for issues that may not be immediately obvious. If you try to do it yourself, you may miss underlying problems – and that means your DIY work is really just a band-aid covering a big problem underneath. In addition, roof work can be dangerous if you lack proper training and equipment. We’ve compiled some common DIY roofing fails, so you can think twice about whether or not you want to climb up there yourself.
