When it comes to fixing a roof, a do-it-yourself approach is not recommended, no matter the type of the roof we’re talking about – be it residential or commercial. It is not that some skilled owners couldn’t do some minor repairs; it is just that the risks are too high.
What kind of risks are we talking about?
Your commercial roof protects your business. If something happens and things go wrong, you may experience material loss and even down time, which would be very costly for your company.
Another category of risks you expose yourself to when fixing your own roof are safety risks. Roofing is about working at height, so it requires protective equipment, but also adequate insurances.
Last but not least, if you fix your roof without being qualified for the job, you will void your roof warranty. No insurance company is willing to pay for amateur works, so you may end up paying a lot of money from your pocket instead of receiving compensation from your insurer.
No matter how confident you are in your skills and no matter how tempted you are to save some money, remember that roofing is a job for professionally trained NWR (nwrcommercial.com/) roofing contractors. Their installers and repair specialists have years of experience in the industry, and can be trusted to complete your project with integrity and a job done right, the first time.
