Roof Replacement is a Major Project: It’s a Professional Roofer’s Job

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014 by Office


If spring home improvements are underway in your Washington DC property, one of them must surely be your long-due roof replacement project because of the leaks that have been plaguing your interiors. It may seem like a daunting task but you need to immediately address the issue so as not to put your home at risk. Do not even think of getting an ordinary handyman or just yourself and your buddies to do the job.

Let’s face it: you don’t have the proper equipment or experience to go the do-it-yourself option. Certainly, a major project like roof replacement requires the help of a trained and dependable roofer in Washington DC who will work with you from the idea phase to achieving your desired output: a successful and quality installation of your new roof to stop the leaks. An MSN article emphasized this exact sentiment:

Go with the pro: Assessing a roof leak.

Some overhead leaks are due to minor problems — such as a single torn shingle or a small hole in flashing — that you can usually handle with a little DIY experience and some basic tools. But other situations call for a roofer’s expertise. If you can’t fix the problem quickly and completely, call a professional as soon as possible; water damage spreads quickly, even from a small leak. A licensed roofer is best when:

  1. There are multiple leaks.
  2. The leak is wicking across framing members or along walls, making it difficult for you to trace the source.
  3. A repair you made is not holding.
  4. The leak entails significant damage to roofing surface or flashed areas.
  5. The roof surface, such as ceramic tile roof, is beyond your abilities.
