Why to Avoid DIY Foam Roofing for Your Phoenix Home

Trying to DIY foam roofing installation or repair can be a disaster.

Why to Avoid DIY Foam Roofing for Your Phoenix Home

The DIY craze is booming, but here are a few reasons why you should not attempt to DIY your own foam roofing for your AZ building.
Phoenix, Arizona

The DIY craze has gotten out of hand these days. Thanks to the proliferation of YouTube videos, sites like Instructables, and home improvement shows like This Old House, too many people think that they can perform complicated home repair or construction so long as they have the right tools and read or watch enough tutorials.

This is simply not the case. When you are facing something as complex as Phoenix foam roofing installation or foam roof repair, only the help of an experienced roofer will do. Here are a few reasons why you should not attempt to DIY your own foam roofing for your Arizona home or business:


Nothing can make up for the right experience, and professional roofers have been on the job for many years. They've learned the right techniques for applying foam roofing, which ensures that your roof will have a very long and happy life with few repairs. However, if your roof is damaged, they also know just how to perform foam roof repair to create a seamless patch that does not compromise the integrity of the look or function of the roof. That experience and training can save you a lot of money. The right application will lengthen the life of your roof and will minimize the need for costly repairs later.


You don't need a simple hammer and some sealant to install a foam roof. Specialty tools are required to spray on the liquid foam, to level it as it dries, and to apply the coating required for its maintenance. You may be able to rent these tools if you try to do the work yourself, but they are expensive, and you need specialty training to use them.

A professional roofer has these tools and the training to use them. Hiring a professional will save you money in the long run and will protect the safety of your family and your home.

What You Can DIY

There is plenty you can do yourself to take care of your roof. For example, you can perform a lot of your own maintenance, such as checking the roof for areas of discoloration, pooling water, or the growth of moss or algae. When you spot these issues, you can call your roofer to have them repaired quickly, helping you to save money on larger repairs later. You can also remove debris from your roof that could damage it, such as branches or piles of leaves and pine needles.
