How to find a reliable, local roofing contractor  

Thinking of getting some roofing work done? Whether you’re looking to get roof insulation or need an emergency roof replacement, there are plenty of roof installation and repair experts in your local area who are ready to help.  

What should I consider when hiring a local roofer?  

It’s really important that you choose a reliable roofing company to carry out work on your roof. Failing to do this can result in unnecessary stress and expensive repairs.   

Before you hire, you should do your research to ensure that your roofers: 

  1. Are an experienced company with a strong history of successful projects  
  1. Have all the necessary licenses, insurance and warranties needed to protect you and their workers 
  1. Have a good range of positive reviews from previous customers vouching for their reliability and professionalism  
  1. Are offering the roofing services you need, and are available to carry out the work in the timeframe you need it to be completed by 
  1. Are quoting a price and payment option that you are happy with, having compared the quote with other local roofing companies  

A local roofer is more likely to respond quickly – especially to emergency roofing needs – as they’ll be right around the corner and ready to help.

How much does it cost to hire a roofing contractor?

The cost to hire a roofing contractor depends on the type of work you are looking to get done. If you need a roof replacement, costs will vary depending on a few factors:  

  • The size of your roof 
  • Where you live in the UK  
  • Your choice of materials  

That being said, the average cost of a roof replacement in the UK is between £12,000 and £15,000. More expensive projects, such as the replacement of a large mansard roof, can cost upwards of £18,500, whilst a smaller flat roof could cost you around £3,000 to replace. 

If, on the other hand, you’re looking to get your roof repaired, it will cost you around: 

  • £350 to get a leaking roof valley repaired 
  • Between £500 and £2,000 to get soffits and fascia replaced 
  • Around £200 – £250 per m2 for flashing repair

How to choose the best roofing company near me 

The best way to choose a reliable roofing service is to look through their previous projects and reviews.  

On Rated People, you can do this by scrolling down to a roofer’s ‘Reviews & ratings’ on their profile page. Many of our roofers also include pictures in their ‘Work gallery’ that will allow you to see first-hand the quality of their workmanship. 

This will give you confidence that you’re picking a skilled, reliable roofer who has a proven track record of delivering high-quality results. 


Questions you should ask a roofer  

Tip #1 – Ask about roofing materials   

Local roofers are familiar with your area’s climate and weather conditions, and will be able to recommend a suitable roofing material for your home.  

Some of the most popular roof tile materials include: 

Roofing material Pros Cons 
Concrete roof tiles Affordable + low maintenance Prone to cracking + difficult to install 
Slate roof tiles Come in a range of sizes and colours + aesthetic Expensive + difficult to install 
Asphalt roof tiles Affordable + aesthetic Weather damage in freezing temperatures 
Clay roof tiles Long-lasting + weather-resistant Difficult to install + prone to cracking 
Steel roof tiles Lightweight + versatile Noisy + dent more easily 

There are a large range of roofing materials available for you to choose from. Make sure you ask your roofing company for guidance on which tiles would suit your home best.  

For more information on roofing materials and their pros and cons, check out our roofing cost guide

Tip #2 – Ask about local building regulations  

Hiring a professional roofing company based in your area is a good idea because they will be familiar with your local building regulations and will ensure full compliance during the project. Make sure you ask your roofers whether you’ll need to apply for planning permission before you can carry out roofing work. 

For more information on building regulations, read our planning permission guide or visit the Planning Portal website.

FAQs you should ask your roofer 

Are you licensed and insured? 

Make sure to ask your roofer what insurance they have before you hire them. While it’s not a requirement, it’s a good idea for your roofer to have public liability insurance to cover you and them against any accidental damage done to your home or personal injuries. This will guarantee protection for both parties and ensure your roofer is legally compliant. 

How many years of experience do you have? 

Knowing how many years of experience your roofer has will allow you to pick a roofer who you are confident has sufficient expertise to carry out a high quality job. When you’re finding a roofer through Rated People, head over to their profile to check out the pictures on their work gallery and their ratings and reviews. 

How long will the job take? 

Knowing what your project’s estimated timeline is will help you set realistic expectations about how long your roof renovation will take to complete. 

How much will the job cost? 

Asking how much the job will cost will help you budget for your project and will ensure price transparency before you hire. How much you’ll end up spending depends on the scope of your project, and where you live in the UK, so make sure you add plenty of details when you post a job. 

Do you use subcontractors? If so, are they licensed and insured? 

If your roofer is planning on using subcontractors, then it’s a good idea to confirm the qualifications and insurance coverage of everyone who will be working on the project, so make sure you ask before you hire.  

What type of roofing material do you recommend? 

Asking about roofing materials is a good idea, as there are plenty of options for you to choose from, ranging from clay to slate tiles. A local roofer will be able to recommend a suitable material for your house and location. You can also read our 2023 roofing cost guide, which covers all the main roofing materials, as well as their prices. 

What will you do with the old roofing materials? 

Asking your roofer about how they plan to dispose of your old roofing materials will help you ensure that your roofers are environmentally responsible.

Tom came to skim my son's ceiling but because it had old artex and very uneven he decided to put a false ceiling in, board that and then skim it. Tom is a really friendly guy, kept showing me where he was up to in the job and was very tidy and did a great overall job at a good price. Wouldn't hesitate to use Tom again or recommend to friends and family.

Every part of the service failed resulting in wasted money, time and damage which now needs fixing. Summary: 1. Rubbish removal destroyed new fencing materials. 2. Remaining new panels were damaged with a) rough, unsupported cutting and b) shoddy/misaligned screws 3. Attached horizontal panel when others were vertical. 4. Failed to align heights. 5. Used damaged materials, despite being asked and agreeing NOT to use. 6. Ignored our instruction during work & request to refund. In short a nightmare.
