Why Homeowners Should Only Use Approved Roofing Contractors

Langdon Roofing is a family-run roofing company that provides a range of services for customers in Guildford and the surrounding Surrey area. Having traded over 50 years, we know how important it is for customers to only use approved roofing contractors. Homeowners requiring tile, slate or felt roofing, or a more specialised option for flat roofing such as EPDM or GRP, should have it installed by a team of qualified roofers.

Here, Langdon Roofing explains why you should only use the services of approved and accredited roofing contractors.

Accreditation is Important

It is important to research the reputation of roofing contractors before deciding to use their services. Failure to do so could result in you choosing a roofing company that does not hold recognised accreditation. The consequence of this is the use of roofers who don’t have the experience needed to work with today’s latest systems and materials, which results in you paying even more money for qualified roofing contractors to correct their poor workmanship.

An accredited roofing company in Guildford is likely to be part of a recognised association. Here at Langdon Roofing, we are Surrey Trading Standards Approved roofers and members of the Federation of Master Builders. Langdon Roofing has met strict membership criteria and passed rigorous background checks to become members of these two prestigious organisations.

Look for Experience

It’s important to know the experience of the roofing company you’re looking to use. Experienced roofing contractors will be able to advise on the best materials for roofing repairs and installations. Experience and knowledge remove the risk of roofers using low-quality materials, ensuring a full lifespan for new or refurbished roofs.

Always ask if work carried out by a company’s roofers comes with a full guarantee. This will protect you financially should you have any concerns with the product after installation. Langdon Roofing provides customers in Guildford with a 20-year warranty on GRP & EPDM flat roofing installations and a reassuringly long guarantee with tile, slate and felt roofing.

A time-served roofing company can advise you if work on your home requires planning permission from your local authority for Guildford. If, for example, you require refurbishment work on 50% or more of the roof’s area, you must contact local authority building control before starting. This is to also confirm that the roof meets the thermal requirements of Part L of the current building regulations.

Finding a Reputable Roofing Company

Fortunately, there are ways to protect yourself from roofers without suitable training and accreditation. We think one of the best ways to do this is to listen to previous customers, and to see what they have said about services received in the past. We have testimonials on our website which give a fair reflection on our roofing contractors and the way we go about our business.

When customers in Guildford and Surrey can only say good things about a roofing company, it’s fair to assume that you’ll always be in good hands if you choose to use that company yourself.

Quotes and Payment Terms

Following the correct process when considering a quote will protect you against potential issues when the job starts. Ask your roofing company to provide the quote in writing, ideally on company headed paper. On accepting the quotation, make sure you agree payment terms before roofers carry out any work. If roofing contractors ask for an upfront payment, ask them to explain the reason for it and what you will receive in return.
