Don’t Break a Leg! When It Comes To Gutter Work, Don’t Do It Yourself!


December 2, 2015

The leaves aren’t the only thing that come falling down this time of year. In Emergency Rooms and Urgent Care clinics all over the country, nurses, doctors, and anxious spouses trying really, really hard not to say, “I told you so!”, are attending to broken legs and arms (and worse).

Sadly, every year it’s the same story. Men and women decide it’s not worth paying for a home gutter inspection or cleaning, and instead break out the ladder and head up to the roof. But unless you’re a professional roofing contractor with extensive experience in residential roofing repair, it’s near impossible to do the job right. We’re not doubting your Do It Yourself or home improvement skills, but doing a job right means doing it safely. In this case, that means calling in the professionals.

Don’t become a statistic. Every year American men and women just like you fall off ladders and roofs while inspecting or cleaning their home’s gutters. Even a fall from a one-story roof can result in painful fractures. In the worst case scenario, homeowners have even broken their backs or died.

Safety First! Trust Roofing Companies in Michigan To Do Dangerous Roof Repair Jobs!
If you’re looking for home roof repair tips, this is the most important advice you’ll ever hear. Unless you’re a trained contractor, when it comes to vinyl siding repair, roof repair, and gutter inspections, cleaning, or installation, put your trust in roofing professionals. It really is harder than it looks! There are more than 50,000 roofing and siding companies in the U.S. in 2015, so there’s bound to be a roofing contractor in your area.

There’s a reason 72% of homeowners say that when choosing roofing materials for their home, low-maintenance materials are their top priority. While savvy homeowners can do many repairs themselves, roof problems require roofing pros to do the job safely. With the average asphalt roof needing re-roofing every 12 to 20 years (the average roof lasts 17 years in general), you have no idea how slippery or insecure your roofing might be. In the fall, wet roofs are extremely dangerous, while poorly installed gutters could give way, sending your ladder crashing down to the ground.

Gutter inspection and roof repair costs are nothing compared to the pain and cost of medical bills!
