Frequently Asked Questions

When should you pay a roofer?

You should never pay a roofer upfront for work performed. A roofing contractor does not require payment until the job is completed and satisfactory to you, your bank or mortgage company, as well as any warranty agreements that may apply in a particular situation.

How do I pick a good roofer?

To begin, check local referrals and reviews, but don’t stop there. You should also ask for the license number and check that it is current with local authorities; this means the roofing contractor has been successfully inspected annually to maintain an acceptable finish level.

How much do roofers charge UK?

The UK national average rate is £25 per hour, but this can vary depending on the roofers’ experience, size, and location.

What to know before hiring a roofer?

Here are some general questions you should as a roofing contractor:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • What previous jobs have you completed that I can go and see?
  • Who exactly will be installing or repairing my roof?
  • Do you have liability insurance? 
  • Are your roofing contractors licensed and certified (or qualified)?
  • What is the length of warranty for a new installation or repair?
Can you negotiate with a roofer?

You can negotiate with a roofing contractor, but always do it with the knowledge that you will lose some bargaining power. Discuss your budget and other costs for the roofing installation or repair job with a contractor before you decide to hire them.

How long do roofers guarantee their work?

Most roofs are installed with a warranty of up to ten years, and the roofing contractor warranty is usually around one year. 

Should gutters be removed when replacing a roof?

Gutters should not be removed if they install a new roof over the existing one, but you should at least have them taken off before replacing an old shingle.

What time of year is best to replace a roof?

The best time of year to replace a roof is when you can plan for it. Spring is when you can do the most work and need to prepare for a new roof. 

How long does it take to replace a roof?

The time range for replacing a roof can be anywhere from two days to three weeks. It depends on the size of the job and what type of roofing material is being used.

What should be included in a roofing estimate?

For most roofing estimate plans, there should be an estimate for roofing material. Approximated timeline for the job and the roofing contractor’s fee. A full description of work to be carried out, insurance and licensing documents.

Can roofs be replaced in the winter?

Any roofing repairs or installation will be completed at a time of your choosing. We offer emergency service as well. We advise dealing with any issues as soon as possible before they become too large to repair or resurface.
