Don’t Run the Risk of DIY Roof Repairs

When a leak springs in your roof it proves much more than a simple inconvenience. It becomes an emergency that needs to be fixed immediately. However, some people feel that the nearest local roofing company cannot be there fast enough and attempt to fix the problems themselves with no training or comprehension of the scale of an issue causing the leak. Sure, roof leaks can cause severe damage to your possessions and the structure of your home – but doing things with it that you have no experience handling can lead to much worse. Yes, roof repairs can be expensive and daunting, but DIY roof repairs are all that and more, including potentially fatal.

Think of Risk, Not of Savings

Many do not understand the dangers and risks involved with DIY repairs. Without proper tools, training, and equipment, you can experience anything from a fatal fall to an electrical hazard. DIY repairs will also fail to address the root cause of the issue, which will only lead to further damage.

Hiring a professional roof company like Pinnacle Roof and Build ensures that your problem is handled by those with the information, expertise, and equipment necessary to accurately identify and address any roof-related issue.

Danger of DIY

Roof repairs are the most dangerous types of renovation work that can be done on your property. One of the most significant risks associated with roof repairs is the potential of falling off steep angles or uneven surfaces.

A roof is also fitted with many electrical hazards, such as power lines and exposed wiring, that can result in fatal electrocution during amateur attempts at repair. Attempting such a task without any formal training can lead to far more extensive damage and leaks, with you not able to accurately diagnose the root of the issue and lending your roof to simple patchwork repairs that are not suitable.

A professional roofing company has training, tools, and equipment to ensure safety while effectively handling any size of leak in your property. These pitched and flat roof specialists can also install new replacement roofs if required, meeting the industry standard for safety.


When repairing a leaking roof, professional roofers use their extensive knowledge of roof design and solutions to diagnose and fix the leak quickly, saving the property owner time and hassle.

The roofer will also ensure that any solution put in place is a long-term solution, not a simple temporary fix. That helps you to save money on routine repairs every few months or whenever you have severe weather patterns. Professionals will only use suitable materials and techniques to repair the issue and provide inspections to identify any potential problem areas around your roof so that they do not become a problem later.

If you are experiencing leaks in your roof and need urgent repairs, don’t make the DIY roof repairs mistake. Contact the team at Pinnacle Roof and Build today.


Working in a high pressure law firm means we often don’t have time to turn our attention to the things that need doing to the building we work in.

Since we occupied our Cheadle offices back in 2017, we have have always had and issue with the flat roof at the back. Any time we have tried to resolve it, we have either been met with unreliable workmen, or extortionate quotes.

Once Brad joined BNI – and after hearing about all the fantastic work he had done for fellow members – we decided to call him in to quote. After attending the offices and providing a very reasonable and detailed quotation, we instructed Pinnacle Roof and Build to replace the flat roof at the office.

Brad and his team always turned up on the days and times stipulated – and if there was ever a change in the schedule, Brad would always let me know in advance.

It wasn’t the easiest of jobs, and Brad and his team were met with a lot of challenges – but despite this, the invoice at the end did not exceed the initial quote, and the works were still completed in time.

All in all, Pinnacle Roof and Build provided a first class service. They went above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to family, friends, and business associates.

Alex and his team were professional throughout. They arrived on time, delivered the job with no hiccups and completed the job on the day they said they would.
Overall impressed with the work and the workmanship.

J Morris – Woodley.

We first reached out to pinnacle when our roof was leaking last winter which they temporarily repaired.
We then had them back in the spring to re-roof our entire house. Great work lads.

P Bolton – Woodley.

Very high standard of work, gave great advice and provided a second to none service!
Will be using again!

B Council – New Mills.

We decided to use pinnacle roof and build because I thought Brad was very easy to deal with and very knowledgeable about the work we needed doing.
Great company, great set of lads
