Should I Hire a Handyman for my Roof Repair?

Are you experiencing problems with your roof? Have you found leaks, missing shingles, improperly installed flashing, holes where pests are coming in the house, fallen tree, leaking skylight, ventilation issues or another issue? Your roof is one of the most significant investments in your home and protects you and your family from the outside elements.

Reasons not to hire a handyman

There are multiple reasons why it is essential to hire a roofing expert over a handyman to repair your roof. A Handyman is a good solution with small items that can easily be fixed, but the homeowner does not have the expertise or time to fix the honey-do list around the house.

When hiring someone to assess and fix your roofing issues, ask yourself these questions:

Are they fully licensed and insured?

If the handyman is not, you will have no recourse if the job goes bad? Some warranties will not guarantee their product if a company is not insured.

Is the handyman trained with your roofing material?

Two of the leading manufacturers for roofing materials are GAF and Owens Corning. Hire a GAF Certified Roofing Contractor or an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor, so you have the best of the best fixing your roof.

Can the handyman get the same roofing materials that are in place?

Is the handyman connected with a manufacturing source to purchase the same shingles, etc. so it keeps your roofing consistent?

Will the handyman be around next week when you need him?

Unfortunately, there are a lot of handymen that set up in one area and then migrate to another quickly. It is in your best interest to hire a company that has been in the business in the area for an extended , so you know they guarantee their work and they will answer the phone next week for a service call.

Does your handyman have any reviews and testimonials?

Vet the person that will be doing your work. There are many sources to see what others think and how well a job they are doing in the community. Does he have a website with testimonials on it? Is he on Facebook and the FB reviews are excellent? Other review sites to check are Google, Yelp, Angie’s List, Better Business Bureau, etc. Check all of their reviews.

Strongly consider the value an experienced roofing service can offer over a handyman to fix your roof issues.
