How to Choose a Roofing Company

If you need your roof repaired, or require a whole new roofing system for your existing property or a new build home, it can be difficult to know where to begin when it comes to choosing a company to carry the work out for you. If your roof has been damaged in a storm, or you’ve discovered a leak then of course you will want a company to come out as soon as possible to fix the issue, but it’s still important to choose the right company, rather than just the first one you find.

Here are the steps we recommend taking when choosing a roofing company to carry out work on your home or place of business…

How to Choose A Roofing Company

Get Referrals and Do Your Research

One of the best ways to find a roofing company you can trust to carry out your roofing work is by asking for referrals from local people you know. Ask friends, family or neighbours who have had roofing work carried out for their recommendations and then do some research on these companies. Choosing a company who are fully insured is crucial, to avoid any issues while work is taking place. It’s also vital to choose a company who have plenty of experience in roofing, as they’ll have the knowledge that is important for doing a great job. We have over 30 years of experience in roofing and as such as we are well qualified to carry out all types of roofing work on any kind of property.

Get Several Quotes

We recommend getting quotes from several different roofing companies, as prices can vary massively between companies. You should remember that price isn’t the most important factor however and that if a company is significantly cheaper than the others, there usually is a reason for this. Perhaps they’re not using the highest quality materials or are doing ‘rush jobs’ and not completing things to the best of their ability, something you’ll definitely want to avoid. At P.A. Wilkes Roofing Ltd, we use only the best materials to provide a great finish and ensure your home or place of business is safe and watertight for many years to come. We also provide free no-obligation quotes and would be delighted to create one for your job. Once you have obtained several quotes, base your choice on the quality of the advice given by the company and your confidence in their ability.

You should also ask roofing companies what their availability is, what hours they’ll work and how long they anticipate the job will take. Of course, several factors may affect the length of time it will take to complete the work, including the weather, but it’s still a good idea to get an estimate for how long work will take.

Roofers in Powys

"Paul came round and talked through the job of fitting 4 Velux windows. His quote followed a few days later which was competitive. The work was completed to a high standard and amazingly with very little disruption. Paul seems to know his stuff and would ask him to quote again for anything roof related."
