When it Comes to Your Roof, Never DIY

If you enjoy DIY and your roof is broken, damaged or faulty, you may be tempted to tackle the problem yourself. And you wouldn’t be the first to be tempted by the DIY approach. However, whilst simple roof maintenance jobs such as unblocking gutters can be done at home with the right tools and safety measures, anything beyond this is best left to a professional. Let’s take a look at a few reasons why.


Any SS Roofing roofing contractor Exeter residents hire will always prioritise safety. Roofing specialists have all undergone thorough health and safety training and have years of experience to support it. Risking your safety for a DIY job is simply not worth it.

It costs less in the long run.

A professional roofing contractor will always provide efficient roofing solutions that will be sustainable for years to come. Only roofing specialists know how to make a roof last. Attempting to fix your roof yourself will likely result in paying out more money to fix it in the long run.

They'll do the work faster (and better!).

If you have a leak in your roof or missing shingles, these problems must be fixed as soon as possible to prevent further damage. Hiring a dedicated roof specialist will ensure that these problems are fixed quickly and effectively, while you enjoy the peace of mind knowing your roof is in safe hands.

They know whether it's best to repair or replace.

Some damages to roofs such as missing tiles can be fixed easily, without requiring a whole new roof installation. On the other hand, some roof problems can be symptomatic of a roof that is old, damaged and in need of replacing. Only an experienced roofing contractor Exeter residents rely on can make this decision.

They will offer warranties and be insured.

We’re sure you’ll agree that nothing makes a homeowner sleep well at night like knowing your roof is under warranty. Whilst DIY jobs come with numerous risks, jobs completed by roofing contractors come with a warranty. Also, a professional roofing company will be insured, so you can guarantee that they will have all the tools and stock required, and a team of well-cared-for employees eager to do the best job they can. If you are in need of a professional roofing contractor, Exeter and Devon locals have been relying on SS Roofing’s expertise for over 28 years. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
