If you’re planning some DIY roof work, safety must always be your first priority. If you skip these necessary considerations because you’re eager to get to work, there’s a greater likelihood that an accident will happen— so why push your luck? Roofing is a dangerous profession. In fact, it has been reported that 6 roofers die each year in the U.S. from falls alone, not accounting for electrocutions and tool mishaps. So, remember to take these roofing precautions to avoid serious injury or even death.
