Reasons to Never Attempt a DIY Repair of Commercial Roofs

Whether you need some minor maintenance, a repair, or a full-on replacement, commercial roofing is an area that you’d best leave for the experts. While it may seem like a good idea to do DIY repair of commercial roofs yourself and save on labor costs, there are too many pitfalls that can result in failure or injury.

Commercial roof construction is quite different from residential roofing. In many ways, commercial roofs are far more complex and require a specific set of knowledge and skills to tackle. These styles of roofs are typically flat or have a narrow slope and can vary greatly in terms of construction.

Attempting to manage your own DIY repairs risks affecting the operations of your business on a day to day basis. Arizona weather is extreme, sometimes unpredictable, and unforgiving. You may feel like a DIY job is well done, but you won’t know for sure until a storm rolls in, in which case you’ll likely find that your “repaired” roof cannot hold up against the weather. This can put any employees, inventory, or other areas of the building at risk for harm or water damage!
