Competent Roofer

LABC – Pilot Scheme Starting Soon
Working with Competent Roofer, LABC will be clamping down on roof refurbishment work that is being undertaken without notification to Building Control. They will be contacting roofing companies either based or operating in areas they have selected to target within England and Wales.


If they find roofing work that hasn’t been reported, they will systematically look through records of that company’s jobs, if necessary over an extended back-dated period. This means as a member of Competent Roofer you must  be logging and completing your work; you will not be immune to this spot check.
I find this quite interesting being a member of Competent roofer we always inform customers they have notify building control if a roof is to be replaced, and that if insufficient insulation is present it should be upgraded.
I have found we are loosing a lot of work as most roofing companies in this area are completely ignoring this.
It is not only the roofers also local building control are unsure.
I recently quoted a flat roof in Bagshot told the customer he should have the insulation upgraded he decided to check with local building control to be told  if it is like for like then he does not have to insulate or inform the council, he therefore thought I was trying to get extra works and I lost the job only for someone to replace the roof without insulation
So who is right ? and are Building Control aware of Competent Roofer Scheme Surrey Heath obviously is not.

Roofing Services Camberley and Surrey areas

Did you know that a staggering 93% of all DIY expenditure in the UK goes on the internal decor of our homes, with a measly 2.5% allocated to probably THE most important part of your home or business premises – the roof.

Say what?

It’s true. A sound roof is fundamental to protecting your property and MAINTAINING IT’S VALUE, yet far too many people neglect the basic fabric of their home.
Think about it this way, a leaking or defective roof can cause IRREPARABLE long term structural damage. Whereas a change of colour scheme on your freshly primed walls is frankly a COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY if, less than six months later, you’re forced to knock the whole thing back and start again.

So, to avoid the mass exterior neglect of our properties here in Surrey, we’ve designed a cost effective service before it’s too late!
Here’s how it works:

1. You have a leaking or insecure roof that needs fixing
2. You get in contact by telephone or our online form (click here)
3. We book an appointment to inspect your roof and identify the problem
4. We provide you with a pre-agreed FIXED PRICE quotation to fix your roof
5. If you wish us to proceed, we start the job as soon as possible
6. We fix your roof. And if we can’t fix it, you don’t pay us!
We can’t say fairer than that can we?

What type of roofing jobs do you carry out?

* General roof repairs (planned in advance)
* Emergency roof repairs (unplanned)
* Roof replacement (pitched & flat roofs)
* New build projects (small & large scale)
* Fascia boards, soffitts and bargeboards
* Gutters and downpipes (Upvc or cast iron)
* Chimney stacks, pots and ventilation

The biggest fear that most people have when it comes to getting their roof fixed is that they’ll end up with a stonking great invoice. This simply isn’t true. In fact, the average roof repair comes in at under £200, which is less than half of what most people spend on their food bill every month!

Low pitch roofing Aldershot

In any pitched roof design you should check that the tile you are proposing to use is designed for that specific pitch – your roofing contractor will be able to advise you on all the technical performance issues relating to individual tile products.

Which tile should be used on a roof of 80.

There are no tiles on the market that I know of that can be laid to a pitch as low as this
Just completed a small domestic extension roof which had been covered in a Redland 49 tile the underlay had rotted away allowing rainwater into the cavity walls causing a lot of damp internally.
We stripped the roof and supplied and fitted a new warm roof system using a  high performance felt system
Notice the slate roof next door !
