What do you need to know about repairing a roof?
All roofs require repairs every so often. Your issue could be leaks, broken or missing tiles or anything else. What matters is this: repairing a roof can be very dangerous for the unequipped or untrained, and so it is important to make sure your roofer is properly qualified. A great sign is if one of your options belongs to a national tradesmans' organisation, such as the National Federation of Roofing Contractors Ltd (NFRC). Tradesmen belonging to this body adhere to a strict code of conduct, meaning they are required to provide a high-quality service and charge a fair price. Another good indicator will be positive customer reviews. A well established professional should be able to provide any information you need on qualifications, experience or customer satisfaction.
Due to the danger of the work it is important to make sure that your final hires are fully covered against accidental damage and liabilities. Ensure that they have the proper safety equipment. Depending on the height of your roof, they may require scaffolding. Finally, your tradesman should be able to provide a good guarantee for their work, in case you are unsatisfied.
