Accreditation of Roofing Contractors in Rockford

It’s always a good idea to start by asking your neighbors for recommendations when looking for a roofer, as you’re likely to share the same style of roof. Most roofing contractors in Rockford will be happy to install either slates or tiles but check their experience if you have a flat roof or other more unusual structure. Find out whether previous customers praise all aspects of a roofer’s work, such as the quality and cost of the work, the time it took to complete and what they were like to deal with.

Finding the Accreditation Standards

It’s worth finding out whether your roofer or roofing contractor is a member of The National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC), which is well-regarded in the industry. NFRC contractors undergo rigorous vetting before joining and are subject to checks every three years. They must hold appropriate public, employers’ and third-party insurance, comply with health and safety legislation and operate in accordance with the NFRC Code of Practice. If you need tiles, a fascia or slates replacing, then you can search for a roofer with which trusted traders? All the traders on our scheme have been vetted by trading standards qualified assessors to ensure they have all the correct procedures in place and operate according to current regulations. You can check the reviews left by other customers on each roofer’s profile page to get a feel for their business. In the unlikely event of anything going wrong, you have access to an alternative dispute resolution scheme if you are unable to resolve any problems directly with your trader.

Hiring Roofing Contractors in Rockford

Once you’ve decided which roofing contractor best meets your needs, you need to discuss and agree with them like what will happen in the event of unforeseen extra charges? Whether or not there will be any penalties if the work is finished later than anticipated? What would happen in the event of prolonged adverse weather? What hours the trader will work during the week, or at weekends if necessary? What materials will be used, who will supply these, and if they come with a guarantee or not? Whether or not outsourced labor will be used? How rubbish will be disposed of and whether that is included in the overall cost? Whether or not scaffolding will be needed and if it is included in the overall cost? What will happen in the event of any work not meeting a satisfactory standard. It’s always a good idea to set this down in a written contract – it doesn’t need to be complicated, just record what you agree, and both sign it. Then you have a record of how you expect the work to proceed, which should protect both you and the trader. This should be standard on all larger jobs but is recommended even for smaller repairs. Most reputable roofing contractors in Rockford will issue a contract as standard before starting work in any case.
