Trying to Fix a Roof on My Own

I thought I would be able to patch up a damaged section of my roof on my own. I watched a couple of videos online to see how it was done, and it seemed simple enough. Those should be famous last words actually, because I could have saved myself a lot of time, money and aggravation if I had just hired a company that does professional roof repair in Brooklyn NY. I already had a ladder that would reach the roof, and I got a list of supplies that I would need.

The first thing I realized when I purchased what I needed is that I needed a lot more than what I realized. While I did have all of the materials, I did not hardly have any of the tools that I needed for this kind of job. I also realized that carrying a lot of heavy things up a ladder propped against the side of the house is not as easy as I anticipated either. When I priced some of the tools I would need, I threw in the towel. The store allowed me to return my materials that I had already bought, and I turned to the computer instead.

I did a search for local roofing companies, and I was able to find one pretty fast. It is one that I had heard of before in advertisements, and upon further searches, I saw that they have a great reputation in the region. I contacted them about what I needed, and they were able to take on the job. Watching them do the work that I had tried to do was truly humbling. They were able to get on the roof with the heavy materials and tools without any problems, and they had safety gear as well, something I had not thought about either. From now on, I am leaving the hard work to the professionals!
