Are you looking for a contractor to lay, repair or refurbish your roof? There are many contractors out there and it can be difficult at times to decide which one would be best suited for your specific roof job.

We've created this short video in order to help you navigate effortlessly through many of the pitfalls that may arise when looking for the right person to work on your roof.


When you are in the initial stage of choosing and selecting a contractor to do roof work on your home, the following tips should be used as guidance to determine whether the contractor you are considering is indeed as reputable as advertised:


- A contractor should never just give you a direct quote over the phone. A reputable contractor must first visit your property and examine the roof thoroughly before being able to give you a quote for the work your roof requires. A contractor who simply quotes over the phone is cutting corners by not even bothering to visit your property. Not only will the contractor’s quote likely be more expensive than necessary – due to the contractor wanting to cover all eventualities – but if simply visiting the roof is a hinderance, imagine what other corners the contractor may be cutting, in terms of security, licensing, workmanship, and quality of materials used.

- If a contractor does visit your property in order to inspect the roof, a knowledgable one will also inspect the ceilings that would be directly affected by any work undertaken on the roof. Ceilings can be affected by roof work, resulting in reduced isolation, weakened structural security and
increased dampness. Your chosen contractor should be able to advise you on all these aspects.

- In addition to inspecting the ceilings, effects on both internal and load-bearing walls should be taken into consideration when major work is performed on a roof.

- Some contractors specialize in certain roof types, for example wood, tile, or glass. If your roof is made of an uncommon material, ensure that the contractor has the necessary experience, knowledge, and skills to work on your roof. A contractor not used to working with a certain type of roof may cause more damage.


Once you have found a contractor who has visited your property, inspected your roof and ceilings,and provided you with a quote you are happy with, it is time to do research about the contractor:


- Ask the contractor about which materials will be used on your roof, the quality of those materials, along with whether a written warranty will be provided for the work undertaken. This will ensure that the contractor is aware that you are holding them accountable for their work.

- Ensure that the contractor has the proper licence required to undertake the work in your province, locale, or region.

- Confirm that the contractor, as well as anyone else working with the contractor on your property has the necessary insurance. The insurance should not only cover the workers in the event of an unfortunate accident, but also any damage caused to your property.

- Always verify online that the contractor has a good reputation. This can be found by visiting sites such as Yelp, Better Business Bureau (BBB), or on the contractor’s social media pages. Not all contractors have an online presence, so ask the contractor for contact details of recent clients, to whom you can enquire directly.
