There are several reasons why it’s worth it to hire a professional roofer instead of attempting it yourself. The first is safety. Roofing is inherently dangerous, as a fall from a roof could seriously injure or kill you. Roofers have specialized equipment and training to help prevent accidents.  

Next is experience. Roofers know how to spot problems (leaks, missing shingles, moss or mold growth, etc.)  in your roof that could potentially save you from costly repairs down the road. 

And finally, roofers save you time by getting the job done quickly and with a high degree of quality.

Generally, a roofer will likely not need to enter your home. The bulk of the work takes place on and around the edges of the roof, where roofing material meets either dormer walls or other structures. So, there is usually no need for person-to-person contact. However, there might be some cases where a roofer needs to enter your home, perhaps to inspect damage or access electrical outlets.

You can take care of any consultation calls using video chats, photos and emails, and payment should take place on virtual platforms. Put together a strategy with any local roofing professionals you contact.

Roof flashingPlaced around objects or discontinuities which protrude from the roof of a building to deflect water away from joints or seams in valleys where water run-off is concentrated.

How should roof shingles look?

Shingles will normally look a little lumpy when first installed, but within a couple of warm days, they should lay flat. It is not normal for new shingles to look wavy for more than a few days and if this is the case for your roof, contact your contractor to discuss it.

Is GAF or Owens Corning shingles better?

In terms of product quality, GAF and Owens Corning both carry excellent shingles — but GAF shingles offer more protection for wind and hail.

Should I replace flashing with new roof?

If your contractor doesn’t see rusting and the metal’s integrity is still holding up, then your flashing won’t need to be replaced during your roof replacement. On the other hand, if it’s damaged, rusted, or if you’re upgrading from a 3-tab to dimensional asphalt shingle, it will need to be replaced.
