Roof replacement near me is a very stressful prospect. I am not alone in dealing with this. Many of my neighbors, friends, and co-workers have all had to deal with the same thing. My Shingles are due for replacement around mid-winter and I have already been two weeks late on one and three. What am I going to do?
I’ve been trying to decide if I should contact the company that installed my existing roof. I’m thinking that it might be a good idea because of their track record. However, if I call them they might just put the roofing on my own, which would be very bad on my end. Plus, I would have to pay someone to come out to my house to install the new roofing (and probably would have to pay that person an arm and a leg! ).
I’ve also been thinking about doing it myself. I’m not a roofing expert so I have no real training or experience in doing this. Plus, I don’t really like doing any kind of work, but I’m quite good with tools and I have all the right tools to complete a roof repair or some type of roof repair. I could probably get half of the job done in one day, maybe even an hour or two.
I have decided to try doing it myself so I will check out all of my options. If I can get the old roofing off, I will at least be able to see what I have to work with. That way I won’t have to pay someone else to come out and give me an estimate or quote. The worst thing I could do is try to cut the metal roofing on my own. It’s much too hard and could cause serious damage to my roof, possibly splitting the shingles or worse.
If the roofing contractor won’t give me an estimate of a repair I should definitely call around to some other home improvement stores and ask for an estimate. Sometimes they are more than willing to help me because they want my business. They may even discount my roofing contractor’s fee, which would be a bonus.
Whether you decide to do it yourself or hire a professional, paying someone else to do a roof replacement near me should be avoided. Especially if the work isn’t going to be done quickly. You will probably end up with two sets of damaged shingles. And your home might not be standing after the repair is done.
