Roofing installation is tough enough as it is. If you attempt to do roofing on your own, you could be making a big mistake. There are more things that could go wrong than you can imagine. In this video, you will learn about these roofing difficulties.
A lack of caution is often an issue with new roofers. They may get confident too quickly once they start getting the hand of things. However, you always need to respect the height at which you are working. Further, confident amateur roofers may toss old shingles off of the roof. These shingles can land on plants or on a deck and cause serious damage. They could even land on a bystander if you are not careful. Shingles are also dangerous if left laying around as well. It is very easy to slip on old shingles.
Another mistake would be installing defective shingles. If you are sourcing your own shingles, you may not have the eye for spotting defects. Often it is too late by the time that a homeowner realizes some of the shingles are a slightly different color. This can make the roof uneven and discolored.
