Why You Shouldn't Attempt Roof Repair On Your Own
DIY home improvement projects are all the rage, but there are definitely a few projects that you should leave to the professionals. Residential roof repair is one of them. The Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR) collected data that showed that roof falls account for 1/3 of "falling accidents" in the U.S.'s construction industry. But even though construction workers have accidents, they have the correct harnesses, roofing shoes, and other equipment to handle those falls.
The only time where you would be safe attempting residential roof repair, is if your roof is on a one-story home, and if the slope angle is less than twenty degrees. But if you are like most homeowners, you probably don't have the proper equipment, nor the proper training. The work will be safer and more effective if you leave it to a company like Lesniak Roofing.
What kind of residential roof repair can Lesniak do? They can fix all kinds of leaks, whether you have gaps in roof skylights or valleys. If rain water is coming through your chimney, they will be able to patch that up as well.
Replacing damaged or missing shingles can be a rigorous task. However, Lesniak will level out your roof and replace gaps with high-quality shingles. This is an important task if you want your home to maintain its value, and its structural integrity. Damaged shingles don't protect against the element, and the wood underneath could end up rotting!
It's better to take care of these problems sooner rather than later. If you aren't sure whether you need roof repairs or not, get a quote and Lesniak will check out not only your shingles, but the housing structures underneath.
