How Much Does It Cost to Coat a Roof Yourself?
In theory, you could cut the price of your project in half if you just paid for materials and took care of the labor. Most roofing professionals charge about the same amount per square foot for materials, then again for application.
However, hiring a professional is well worth the cost (and highly advised) when it comes to a roof coating. Their knowledge and risk assessment skills ensure your roof stays protected and no one gets injured in the process.
Licensed and insured roofing companies also protect you as the homeowner in the event that someone is injured on your property. Take note of warning signs your roof needs replacement to mitigate repairs needed in the future, like curling shingles and saggy spots.
