6 Tips For Choosing A Roofing Contractor
Knowing the right roofer to hire for your home can be a challenging and confusing task. Below is a list of helpful tips to assist you in choosing the right roofing contractor in Fife and getting the best service for your money as that is what everyone expects.
You need to make sure that your roofing company in Fife has valid employers liability insurance and public liability insurance. If you would like to check these are valid then you can always ask the contractor for a copy of these for your own benefit.
Choosing A Contractor
When choosing a contractor, some people think that choosing a local contractor is the best idea, but is it?
This means that they are not just operating locally, but have an established business and reputation in the community.
We have had many calls from customers that have problems within the standard five-year warranty period. The company that they chose to install their roof closed, moved or vanished. It is very easy to provide a piece of paper, but the warranty is only as good as the longevity and reputation of the roofing company.
Do your research!
Price Isn’t Everything
Never choose a company based on price. Cheap quotes drive down the market and anyone with overhead and proper insurance has to establish pricing to cover such costs.
Those that do work on the side or are just working out of a pick-up truck can always do the work cheaper.
But in the long run, you get what you pay for. Customers that are sold on price as their sole criteria ultimately end up spending more money to fix problems, and many of these problems would have been covered under a workmanship guarantee by a reputable established roofing company.
Get Job Details In Writing
Both belong to you and you should be in control.
Make sure that you are satisfied with the result and that the terms of payment were discussed prior to the job and adhered to by both parties and signed.
There are a lot of companies who will provide a payment schedule and this is recommended, for example – when scaffolding goes up a payment is made and then payment on job completion or in stages, depending on how large the roofing job is. Companies need to cover their back as too many companies can get stung from non payments.
Make sure that you ask how long a job will take. You need to have a clear idea of what size crew that they have and a completion day.
Communication is paramount
Did they return your calls?
Did they send the documentation that you asked them to send? By post and email.
Did they follow through?
If you answered “no” to these questions, then make sure you communicate your concerns to the company representative.
If they still can’t make good, walk away.
Communication is key to every business.
If you aren’t getting what you need on the front end when they are trying to get your business, what will happen once you have committed the work to them?

Flat roofs are less common on domestic properties and are more usually found on garages and commercial office buildings.
