Roofing is harder and more dangerous than you think!!

Thursday, March 29th, 2018 by Suzie Elliott





In a world of DIY enthusiasts and YouTube videos, a lot of people are attempting jobs that they would have hired professionals to take care of in the past. However, arming yourself with a few tools and a YouTube video doesn’t make you an expert. Attempting to follow DIY instructions to make a wreath is one thing … tackling the job of replacing your roof on your own is something entirely different.

Before you even think about handling roof repairs on your own, NMC Exteriors & Remodeling wants you to know some of the benefits of hiring a professional roofing contractor.

IT’S DANGEROUS. It’s pretty obvious that getting up on a roof is quite dangerous. Professionals like NMC Exteriors & Remodeling have the necessary equipment to keep us safe while on your roof and we are used to being up there. You will be distracted by the task at hand and that can have disastrous consequences. A fall from a roof can result in serious injury and even death.

EXPERIENCE ... LOTS OF IT. We have years of experience and we are experts in the field. At NMC Exteriors & Remodeling, we understand the techniques used in roofing, we can expertly handle all the necessary tools, and we can give you a reliable estimate of the costs. We may see a problem that you would have missed, and we know the best course of action to take in various situations. A bit of online research cannot possibly give you the training and experience that a professional brings to the table. It is also very difficult to estimate how much material you will need for a job you don’t really know how to do, so you may end up way over budget (thereby defeating the purpose of the entire DIY idea). No matter what your roofing needs are - entire roof replacement, repairing leaks, ice dam removal – professionals like NMC will provide you with expert service.

WE’LL SAVE YOU TIME … LOTS OF IT.  So, we’ve all tackled enough DIY projects to know that it always looks quick and easy in the video, but it hardly pans out like that in real life. Something unexpected always seems to crop up, and then you have to spend even more time researching how to deal with this new problem. A professional will be able to do the job much faster than you could on your own. Not only are we fast because of experience, we have more time to dedicate to the task than you do. Roofing is our job, but you would be working on this project in your spare time. If you think about how much you work and how much spare time you actually have, the project would end up taking quite a while. A job that will take a professional crew one or two days could end up taking up two weeks of your own time.

WE ARE LICENSED.  Licensed roofing contractors are reliable and you can easily research their reputation. We have the proper insurance necessary to protect ourselves and your home, which means you are guaranteed to receive excellent service and a job well done.

NMC Exteriors & Remodeling has an excellent reputation and we offer quick, reliable service in your area. We offer free, no obligation roof inspections, on-call emergency service, and a guarantee on all workmanship, materials, and services. Insurance claims specialists handle all claims promptly and efficiently so you receive your reimbursement as quickly as possible. With nearly 20 years of experience, our highly-trained expert crews provide quality service on a variety of roof types including shingle, flat, cedar shake, slate, and metal.

So before attempting a DIY roof replacement (which is really much harder than you think!), consider calling NMC Exteriors & Remodeling at 763-260-8537 or email our Office Manager at [email protected]  to schedule an appointment.
