Roof installation

The importance of using experienced roof installers

When it comes to installing a new roof, or replacing a new one entirely, you should never rush into choosing a roofing contractor – as the difference between experienced roof installers and ones who are more likely to provide temporary solutions can vary entirely upon factors such as experience.

Experienced roofing contractors are most definitely the best choice for a number of reasons – and in a number of ways that you may not already have considered!

Whether you are looking for a flat roof repair, a new roof or roof replacements, top notch roofing solutions can seem hard to find. Reliable roofers who will offer you an excellent service, done by experienced roof installers are key to getting the job done correctly. The roof is one of the most important aspects of your home or business and it is important to make the right choice when choosing a roofing service.

What should a good roof installation look like?

Whether you are looking for a new roof installation, re roofing, a full flat roofing or rubber roof, a roof installation project should, first and foremost, be guaranteed to last. Whilst all manner of roofing companies may be able to offer guarantees, certain materials and specialisms, it is only with experience that a greater understanding of what works, what withstands the elements, (particularly in times of climate change) and what is considered the most secure roof can be gained.

Distinction between roofing materials

An experienced roofer and installer will always be able to understand the primary differences between certain materials, as well as what will work best in certain weathers – for example, our expert install team are fully invested in GRP fibreglass, not only for its resistant and long-lasting nature, but also for its versatility.

A good, experienced roof installer shouldn’t just know what works practically for house coverings – they should also have a superb eye for detail and for what looks aesthetically appealing! Homeowners have to see their roof every time the come back home so they want their roof to look good.

An understanding of the area and property

The best roofing contractor, particularly quality local roofing contractors will have a wealth of experience in what has worked well in the local area both on a practical basis and on what looks will blend in with the types of building common to that particular area.


There is an abundance of roofing services out there but professionalism isn’t always their skill set. , Experienced roof installers should remain professional at all times – they should be highly trained, have good knowledge about repairing different roofs on different properties, be able to demonstrate the quality of their workmanship and be happy for you to review previous customer’s work.


A reliable and trustworthy roofing company will be able to get down to business efficiently as opposed to filling time with trying to get the highest price, talking about details which aren’t relevant to make themselves look professional and not turning up when they say they will! Some unethical roofing companies may even say you need a roof replaced when a roof repair would suffice.

The roofing industry isn’t without it’s cowboys so it always pays to do your research and ensure you can see the standard of work your potential roofing company can provide.

Time in the Business

This is important. After all, experienced roof installers are ones who has been able to sustain themselves for considerable years through numerous customer contracts and through word of mouth – reputation still holds enormous sway when it comes to practical work and it’s therefore important that you seek a well-versed, experienced professionals and trusted roofing company that can get the job done for you without quibble or unnecessary chatter.

Proof of workmanship

After all, if you can talk the talk, you had better walk the walk! A reputable roof installer will have photos of roofs they have installed and reviews that prove they can do just that. They will be available to speak to you if you need feedback and will maintain contact during the roof installation.
