Repairing or replacing a roof is a pretty serious project, and one that probably should not be attempted by a casual DIY-er. If you are experienced with home improvement, be sure to avoid these common roof repair mistakes, and make sure that you have the proper safety measures in place before starting any roofing project!
If you have a shingle roof, make sure that you purchase all of the materials for your project from a reputable manufacturer. Follow their installation rules very carefully, not only for safety, but also to ensure that the warranty is honored. For example, nailing shingles to the roof can invalidate most warranty agreements if the manufacturer recommends a different installation process.
A common, and potentially dangerous, mistake can occur when fixing the ventilation on your roof. Take the time to seek out an expert opinion on the proper ventilation system for your home or business.
