How to Choose a Reputable Roofing Contractor

So many people underestimate the importance of choosing a reputable roofing contractor. Focusing on price as the first priority and giving little thought to other important aspects of the work. However when choosing a contractor it really pays to take your time and consider your choice very carefully. These guidelines are aimed at making you think before you choose a contractor, which in turn should help minimise the risk of hiring someone you later wish you had never clapped eyes on!

Employing a good, reputable contractor in terms of price, reliability and workmanship will greatly reduce the potential for problems, and should there be any, it will be far easier to get these rectified.


  • A contractor with a reputation to preserve is more likely to be around should you have problems later.
  • Don’t expect free advice unless you have a real intention to award the contract!
  • Be clear from the outset what you want the contractor to do and then stick to it – changing your mind too often will probably prove expensive.

Please be aware that when carrying out refurbishment work to 50% or more of a roof’s area that either a Competent Roofer (a Competent Person Scheme for roofing) must be employed or your Local Authority Building Control must be contracted prior to work starting. This is in order to confirm that the roof should be upgraded to meet thermal requirements of Part L of the current Building Regulation.
