DIY Metal Roofing Mistakes You Can’t Afford to Make

While the rise of DIY roofing has been meteoric to say the least, sometimes it pays to find a professional that can do it better. There are many metal roofing Asheville NC experts out there that will be able to help you avoid these 3 mistakes that people make when doing their own roofs.

Is Your Roof Insured?
With some of the high winds, hail and flooding we can get in Asheville, it’s important to make sure that the kind of metal roofing you’re getting for your home is insured. Most metal roofingAsheville NC companies will be able to work with your insurance company to get your roof where it’s insured, but doing it on your own is another problem of its own. You’ll have to check with your insurance company to see if they’ll accept a metal roof on your home, speak with a structural engineer and find out if your existing structure can bear the weight of a metal roof.

You Can Void Your Warranty
If you don’t install the roof just so, you can easily void the warranty on materials offered by the manufacturer – just another reason to have a professional handle it for you. If you’re installing your roof on your own, it’s going to pay to make sure that you’re doing it right. Take an afternoon or two and pour over the documentation that came with your materials. See what you need to do to make sure that you’re meeting the guidelines; it’s important to have an insured roof but if you have to pay for materials again out of pocket the price can become unbearable.

Is Your Roof Ready?
If you can’t find an expert metalroofing Asheville NC contractor for your roofing project, you have to find an installer that can at least check the condition of your roof. Your insurance adjuster will often come out and look for dry rot and to check on the extent of the damage to your roof and structure. If there is a problem, you won’t be able to proceed with any roof installation until it’s taken care of.
