We can all agree that the roof is the crown of the house and proper roof installation is important to any home owner.

Here are a few things to consider when trusting an institution/individual to help you build your home.

  1. Look for a local registered contractor.

Engage with an established and registered contractor with a standing reputation. You can request for a National Council Authority certification, check with the relevant authorities for past work done and ensure the contractor is fully trained on the product to install.

  1. Cheap is expensive

If cheap is your sole criteria you will ultimately end up spending more money to fix and redo the roof work. It is better to window shop and compare quality of products and quotations; in the long run you will get what you pay for.

  1. Testimonials

Pick a roofer from referrals with a reputation of good of workmanship. Any credible roofer has recommendation to back up their  previous jobs. You can obtain this from word of mouth referrals and written references from previous jobs. You can also visit the site/s with permission so that you can witness the work first hand.

  1. Payment terms

It is recommended that payment terms should be discussed by both parties with a clear indication of a completion date. Site labour should also be communicated.

Payment should be done after inspection and approval of the roof.
