5 Things You Should Pay Someone Else To Do

Professional roofing contractors are well aware of the hazards involved in repairing a damaged roof system or installing a new roof system. More important, a professional contractor has the equipment necessary to keep his or her workers safe; and roofing workers have the training and experience to avoid injuries while ensuring roof system repair or replacement is performed correctly.

NRCA urges homeowners and building owners to recognize that walking on a sloped roof surface is not the same as walking on level ground, especially if a roof is steeply sloped or covered with dew, frost, snow or storm debris. Serious injuries may result from any fall―even one from what seems like a relatively low height. It is critical homeowners and building owners resist the urge to perform repairs unless they have been trained in ladder safety, fall protection and the other hazards, such as skylights, that may be present on a roof.

  1. At least I would have a new roof by now. How is it that this profession often shows up much later than promised? ( Its raining!) I signed a contract in July and will soon see the pile of new shingles in my driveway be covered w snow!Its Sept. He asked for one half down and I continue to wait for these PROFESSIONALS to show up. I trust people, maybe its my own fault.

    We are sorry to hear that you have not had a good experience with the roofing contractor you hired. Unfortunately there are many roofing companies out there that will do less than the proper repair on your roof system in a timely manner. This is why NRCA recommends making sure that the roofing contractor you hire is indeed a professional roofing contractor. Guidelines on making the best decision on whom to hire to repair your roof system can be found on NRCA’s consumer website at http://www.everybodyneedsaroof.com. NRCA is also available to answer any questions you may have.
