Why You Don’t Need To Hire a Roofing Contractor
Does your roof need to be replaced? Sure, you could hire a roofing contractor, but you can totally do it yourself!
And here’s why you don’t need to hire a roofing contractor:
YouTube Tutorials Taught You Everything You Need to Know
Watching YouTube videos has helped you replace a tire, change your oil, and fix your plumbing so who’s to say you couldn’t learn to replace a roof?
If roofing contractors didn’t want you to learn this, there wouldn’t be so many high-quality videos. As such, you’ve spent over 8 hours on Youtube and now understand the terminology. You’re simply another 56 hours worth of video away from becoming a certified roofing expert.
You Once Helped Build a Play Set
One time, your wife volunteered you to help your neighbor assemble a play set. You spent 9 unwavering, consecutive hours (on a Saturday no less) to finally conquer this play set with “some assembly required”. You went to bed feeling alive and accomplished. The next morning you declared yourself a professional contractor- able to build fix anything in your home.
And just like that play set, roofing works exactly the same way. Mostly. Well, ok, not at all.
In fact, you’ll have to know how much product to order, exactly how to install, or navigating the insurance process. Not to mention, there’s demolition. But again, you’ve taken apart a lego set before so you’re pretty sure it’s the same thing.
You’re Saving Money By Doing It Yourself
At this point, you’re on a 12-year streak of not ever having filed an insurance claim. Why stop a good thing?
Plus everyone knows that you can save money if you do it yourself, even if you have an insurance policy that will cover it. So you spend hours researching products, watching Youtube videos, learning building code laws, learning about filing permits, and learning how to supplement claims.
You even traded a week of PTO and forfeited your summer vacation to learn this information. But, nevertheless, you’ll be darned if you have to pay that deductible. Armed with all this knowledge, you finally can begin the actual process of replacing your roof.
