It DOES NOT happen that often but when it does can sometimes be disastrous. Falling is the number 1 problem cause if you die it wasn’t worth it. 15,717 people die from roof falls every year. Even if you have insurance, it does not stop the pain which can stay with you for the rest of your life.
Can you die from falling off a ladder?
If this happens, you can face a serious injury or even death. A recent study published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly report notes that falls remain the top cause of unintentional injury in the United States. Furthermore, 43 percent of fatal falls over the past 10 years have involved a ladder. Apr 11, 2016

How to steer a potential customer away from a DIY roof:
- Safety: Obviously, keeping people safe is crucial. You are the pro, and you take steps to ensure your safety and the safety of your team.
- Functionality: You know how complicated roofing systems can be. The likelihood that something will be forgotten or done wrong is enormous!
- Warranty: Even, if by some chance, everything is done right, DIY roof repairs can void a roof’s warranty.
- Cost: Your biggest tool to battle DIY is to mention unforeseen costs. Like sheeting boards and bad rafters. A poor-quality job could result in more expenses, wasted time, and a drop in the value of their home!
It’s best left to the professionals.
