If you are considering a metal roof installation on your house or at your company’s premises, you may be asking yourself whether you should hire someone to do it or give it a try yourself. There are excellent justifications for either decision.
The main justification most people give for doing this work by themselves is their desire or need to cut out the cost of labor and thus reduce the metal roofing pricing. Employing an experienced person really means employing his skills and superior knowledge, but that also means that he can fairly charge you much more when he puts in his valuable time on your project
Many people feel like they can take on a big ‘do it yourself’ project like metal roof installation because of the detailed instructions that are often provided by manufacturers. There is one retailer that claims that instructions were given to a married couple who not only completed the project, but remained married in the process! Of course, this retailer is referring to such explicit instructions that the couple had no need to argue over how to complete the project.
Also, many people are worried about ’scam artist’ contractors that seem to be popping up all over the country. These contractors will come in, give an estimate, ask for a deposit or for all of the cost up front, and then disappear. They will not return, often having done little or none of the work at all. However, using a contractor that has been in the business for awhile and has built a good reputation can solve that concern.
There are also many reasons why hiring a contractor can be a good idea. As stated before, he is going to be knowledgeable about the project. Chances are, those costly ‘first-timer’ do it yourself errors will not occur with a licensed contractor. He is likely to know what all of the metal roof installation regulations and guidelines are to pass inspection and more importantly to do a quality job. Also, he should be able to minimize materials and labor costs by doing the job efficiently.
A metal roofing contractor will be able to fix any issues that might arise with the workmanship upon completion. If a roof is done manually by himself, then any mistakes associated with it will be his own to deal with.
If you are planning on a metal roof installation for your home or business, you are probably wondering if it would be better to hire a contractor or to attempt to do it yourself. One of the main, and perhaps most obvious, reasons for doing this job without professional help is to save on metal roofing pricing and labor costs. Another reason some people tackle a ‘do it yourself’ task like roof installation, is that many manufacturers include detailed instructions with their materials. If upon completion, there are any issues with the roof, a metal roofing contractor will know how to remedy the situation.
