When you need a roof replacement or even just a repair, it’s essential that the job is completed right the first time. So, making the right decision on who to complete the job is one of the most important choices during your roofing project.

Many homeowners believe under false pretenses that a handyman will be able to complete a roofing job for a lower price and less hassle than a roofing contractor.

Here’s a look at why it’s always the smarter route to select a professional roofing contractor for a project over a local handyman.

Contractors Are Part of an Experienced Team

When you order work with a roofing contractor, you’re getting the job done by an experienced professional. As roofing contractors, we have dedicated our livelihood to effectively working with roof repairs, roof replacements, and emergency roofing services.

Every member of a good contractor’s team has been vetted to excel in their industry. We know how to quickly find the root of your problem, offer you a solution, and get the job done without excessive costs and too much inconvenience.

A handyman, on the other hand, may be able to work with basic roofing needs like single shingle replacements or minor gutter repairs. However, there will always be a point where their work hits a wall and a project goes beyond their experience.

The danger of working with a handyman for major roof repairs is that while they may not say that they are inexperienced for the job, they could be. When this happens, you could pay the ultimate price when you face further problems that result from a handyman’s “repairs.”

A Handyman Isn’t Licensed

A reputable contractor is going to be fully licensed in their field. While a handyman may be skilled to handle minor repairs around the home, they usually don’t come with a license that guarantees their abilities and knowledge.

With an important job like an emergency roof repair, you will want to find someone fast, who can handle all of your roofing needs without delay or doubt.

Another issue that could fall under the danger of not having a license is the potential for lack of insurance with a handyman. This presents a financial and physical risk to everyone involved. Roofing repairs are serious jobs that can sometimes turn dangerous. A trusted contractor will be insured and help keep everyone on the job safe.

Contractors Have Specialized Equipment

With access to a bigger budget and the ability to handle bigger jobs, a contractor will be able to use the right equipment to complete your job. Handymen may have access to quality tools, but contractors invest in specialized equipment that helps them ensure the quality that one expects from a professional in the roofing industry.
