If the professionals you hire do a bad job repairing the roof of your home, you can call them again, and they will do it for free. DIY roofing projects gone wrong will just lead to more costly repairs.
Cost: Professional Roofers get business discounts for buying in bulk. You do not want to use inferior materials on your roof, which will need to be replaced again and you may end up spending twice the time and money on the project.

Danger: When it comes to roof repairs, whether it’s repairing a few shingles, or replacing your whole roof; it’s a dangerous and tedious job. DIY roof repairs are one of the most dangerous home projects to do yourself. The risk of falls due to a lack of special equipment such as anti-slip matting, helmets, and restraints.
