Residential Roofing Problems: DIY or Hire a Pro?


As a homeowner, when you are able to tackle a project on your own, it’s a big win. Though tackling a project on your own does have some perks, like being able to save money and get the work done when you have free time, there are plenty of reasons that hiring a pro is often the wiser option. 

In today’s blog, the team at Denali Roofing in Fort Collins is going to spend some time talking about a few of the things that you should consider when debating whether or not you want to hire a professional or tackle a roofing project on your own. Let’s get started.

Get to the Root of the Problem

In many instances, when people wind up tackling problems on their own, they do their best to fix it so that the condition is livable again. Though this does leave the problem solved, to some extent, it very rarely gets to the root of the problem. In these instances, the chances of the issue surfacing again and leading to the exact same roofing problem are extremely likely. Rather than tackle project after project on your own, hire a professional that can get to the root of the problem and solve it once and for all. 

Don’t Risk Your Safety

Roofing is one of the most challenging and risky forms of home projects that one can take on. From the height of the roof itself to the wiring, vents, and the like that you’ll come in contact with during a project, you really are putting your safety on the line. Even though it may seem as though you’re taking all of the necessary precautions, it’s much better to let a professional tackle the project so that you don’t have to worry about your safety while fixing your roofing problem. 


Another factor that gets included into the safety bit is the equipment needed to get the job done. Aside from the obvious safety equipment that ensures you are completely safe while on the roof and working on it, you need the proper equipment to tackle the task at hand. Without it, you wind up with a sub-par roofing job, but you’re also unable to get this job done in a safe manner. Without the right equipment, your roof could have one less leak, but it might not be the safest way to go about fixing your roof, making it a huge risk for you and your family.


As with any project, some background knowledge and experience will determine how smoothly and quickly the project gets done. While you can definitely get some guidance on the internet, you won’t be able to obtain the level of expertise that a professional can bring to the table. With this level of expertise, you can count on figuring out what the problem is much quicker, getting answers to your questions, finding a solution that yields long-term results, and enjoying quality service all the while.
