As fifth-generation family-run roofing contractors, we have a full understanding of the complexities involved in fixing a roof. Every domestic, commercial and industrial property owner in Putney has a budget to stick to, so this often results in an attempted DIY project. Like all reputable roofing companies, we cannot discourage this approach strongly enough. Not only is the work difficult for an amateur, it’s also incredibly dangerous for you and the property itself. Whether you need some new flat roofing, a complete re-roofing or any kind of roof repairs, we strongly advise you always put your work in the hands of professional roofers.
Below, we have taken a closer look at three of the most important reasons why roofing services should only ever be undertaken by proven roofing contractors.
For the majority of homeowners in Putney, it’s fair to say the extent of their roofing knowledge remains at the non-existent level. Roofers spend hour upon hour working other roofing contractors in order to accumulate the necessary skills and techniques to perform roofing work to the very highest of standards. This then gives them the basis to start their own roofing companies.
This know-how extends into other areas like knowing how long a job will take and how much of each material needs to be ordered in without waste. This plays a key role in ensuring new roofs, flat roofing and roof repairs reach their conclusion to the very highest of standards, on time and within budget. What’s more, a lack of experience can also cause more damage to the roof than the initial problem in the first place.
Falling from height remains an unfortunate truth face by roofing companies. Naturally, this can lead to serious injury or even death. Our roofers have undergone extensive training in line with the latest HSE legislation and receive regular top-ups to ensure ongoing compliance. Professional roofing contractors, like those at RM Roofing & Property, possess the equipment and tools to get any roofing service completed safely and to the very highest of standards.
When working at height on often fragile roofing systems in the Putney area, the many pitfalls soon mount up. Any notion of saving money on flat roofing, roof repairs and other roofing work soon pales into insignificance when faced by the array of risks involved in DIY work.
When most people head up to the roof to start a DIY job, they have very little idea of what they actually need to do. As a result, any success comes at the cost of significant time invested. Needless to say, anything less than success only requires more time, more stress, more disruption and, ultimately, more cost. Even the smallest mistake usually results in a call to roofing contractors.
Instead of wasting precious free time during weekends and evenings, invest in professional roofers from the outset. Not only will the job reach a conclusion quicker, the expertise of roofing companies usually works out cheaper in the long run.
