What is CompetentRoofer?

// the building envelope

CompetentRoofer is the Government-licenced Competent Person Scheme that allows professional roofing contractors to self-certify that their roof refurbishment work complies with Building Regulations within England and Wales. The scheme encompasses all roofing types for domestic, industrial and commercial properties.

Cheap work has hidden cost implications

Your property is one of the most expensive and important things that you can own so risking any building work to unregistered contractors, simply because it is the cheaper option, is false economy.
Cowboy builders can leave your roof unsafe or unfit for purpose, and put the safety of others at risk their work could also invalidate your building insurance.

You need to either notify your roof refurbishment work via your building control or you can register it via CompetentRoofer, a Government-licenced Competent Person Scheme that allows roofers to self-certify their own work, meaning: we notify the council when the work is completed you have the added reassurance that the contractor has already been vetted prior to becoming a member and will continue to have their work checked you will automatically receive a ten year insurance-backed warranty, which includes breach of Building Regulations and contractor insolvency.
