With that in mind, when you embark on a home improvement adventure, you want to make sure that construction is being done as best and as safely as possible, correct? There are plenty of reasons to hire professionals for roof installation, but let’s explore the top three.

Don’t Try DIY

There are many positives of hiring a professional to do roof installation at your home.

There are many positives of hiring a professional to do roof installation at your home.

One of the worst things you can do when it comes to roof installation is to try it yourself. Aside from being quite dangerous, it simply isn’t a wise investment of your resources. In terms of time, a professional roof installation team will be able to have your house re-roofed in a fraction of the time it might take an untrained craftsman. In terms of money, while there is an initial investment for professional roof installation, that investment more than pays for itself in no time at all. It will likely require fewer repairs and be vulnerable to less damage when installed with know-how and experience. Professional installation keeps your home and your family safer for longer.

It’s Better to Shop with Friends

You shouldn’t try to find roofing materials on your own. Your friends at Schaefer Siding & Exteriors will gladly help you shop smart in more ways than one. First and foremost, our roofing expertise will allow us to help you find the perfect roof for your unique taste and home. We’ll be glad to explain pros and cons and answer any questions you may have about any roofing solution we offer. Another perk of roofing with us is that we have established relationships with some of the most trusted roofing suppliers in the country, like CertainTeed, Tamko, Firestone, GAF, and IKO. That means we can acquire a huge variety of roof materials at awesome prices.

Do Your Homework

While our experienced roofing professionals will do our best to educate you as best they can about possible roofing solutions, it’s a great idea to start by doing a little research of your own. Look at the various brands and materials that your favorite roofing contractor has access to, click around our blog to learn more about some of our roofing materials, and try to decide what factors — look, longevity, strength to name a few — are most important. If you come to your initial consultation with some thoughts already, we’ll be able to help you that much better.
