Let's Make Your Dream Home Project A Reality:

Is your roof in need of an upgrade? Then you need your roofing remodeled. 

Roof remodeling involves improving or updating the existing roofing system of your house. It includes repairing, replacing and upgrading roofing materials to increase its overall durability, functionality as well as aesthetic appeal. Over time, your roof can go through a lot of wear and tear due to age and may impact your curb appeal.

With a roof remodel, we take care of roofing issues, such as leaks, cracked or missing shingles, water damage, mold, mildew growth, and aging of the roof. Moreover, after the process of roofing remodeling, you will see a significant difference in the way your house or property appears.

However, the process of roofing remodeling is a complex one. You will need to start by conducting a thorough inspection, plan and prepare your design, install your new roof and then conduct a final inspection. At Selective Remodeling, we are home renovation experts who can provide you with exceptional roofing services. 

If you are unsure whether you need professional roofing contractors or if you can DIY it, we can help. Let’s dive in!

DIY vs Professional Roofing Remodeling: 4 Things to Consider

1. Skills and Experience

If you are considering a DIY roof remodel, you need certain skills to ensure a successful outcome. While a DIY approach may sound fun, it can be incredibly risky, especially if you are going in blind. Professional roofing contractors, however, have the experience, training, and equipment needed to complete the project safely and efficiently. 

At Selective Remodeling, our team of experts can identify the underlying issues with your roof and recommend the best course of action. They can also work with a variety of roofing materials and can ensure that your roof is perfectly installed and properly repaired. 

In contrast, if you choose to install or remodel your roof yourself, without prior experience or knowledge, you may make mistakes that can lead to costly repairs and fixes or even require replacing the entire roof. To avoid that, it is best to consult professional roofing contractors.

2. Safety Concerns

This goes without saying, but roofing remodeling is a risky project where safety is top priority. Working on a roof requires you to climb to great heights, use specialized equipment, and handle potentially dangerous materials. If you are going for a DIY roof remodel, you may be at risk of several safety hazards. 

For example, one of the greatest risks of a DIY roofing remodel is falling from the roof. Most roofs usually have a sloped surface, which can be dangerous, espeically is you are not familiar with safety protocols and the use of equipment like harnesses and safety ropes. Besides, you will be working with shingles, tiles and other materials that can be heavy and can cause injuries if dropped.

Not only that, but roofing remodeling also exposes you to hazardous materials. Old roofs may contain asbestos, which is a carcinogen that can cause serious health issues if inhaled. As professional roofing contractors, we understand exactly how to work around these issues. Contact us for roofing services!

3. Quality and Durability

One of the reasons why you need roofing remodeling in the first place is to improve the quality and durability of your roof. If you go for a DIY approach, you may not be able to achieve the quality and durability that a professional roofing contractor may be able to achieve. 

As a roofing company, we have access to high-quality materials and also have the knowledge and expertise to ensure that these materials are installed correctly. Our team is trained to recognise potential problems and take the necessary steps to address them before they lead to siginificant damage. 

With a DIY approach, you may compromise on quality and durability, especially if you do not have the skills or experience needed to carry out your roofing remodeling. Lack of experience can lead to improper installation and inferior materials being used, which can lead to water leaks, mold, and mildew growth, and other issues. 

4. Tools and Equipment

When it comes to roofing remodeling, your tools are the biggest game changers. If you want to make your roof remodel project a success, you will need the right tools and equipment. Depending on the specific roofing material, the design, and the scope of your project, the necessary tools and equipment will vary.

For instance, if you are working with asphalt shingles, you’ll need specific tools like a hammer, nails, a utility knife, a chalk line, a ladder, and safety equipment such as gloves and safety glasses. However, for complex roofing materials like tile or metal, you may require specialized tools, such as tile cutters or metal shears. 

Besides that, you will also need the proper safety equipment to ensure safety while you’re on the roof. This may include anything from harnesses to safety ropes to fall protection gear. However, these tools and equipment are big investments. As professional roofing contractors, we are equipped with the right tools and gear to provide safe and expert roofing services.
