We are registered and approved on the Competent Roofer Scheme
CompetentRoofer is the Government-licenced Competent Person Scheme that allows professional roofing contractors to self-certify that their roof refurbishment work complies with Building Regulations within England and Wales
A CompetentRoofer contractor has the unique ability to self-certify that the work they complete complies with the relevant Building Regulations in England & Wales. If you are replacing 50% of more of your roof, it is a legal requirement that you upgrade the insulation and obtain a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate (BRCC). When the work has been signed off as complete you, the homeowner, will receive a BRCC and insurance backed guarantee. Importantly, LABC will automatically be notified that the works have taken place, fulfilling your legal obligation.
Failure to comply with the Building Regulations could result in you receiving an enforcement notice from LABC, requiring the alteration or removal of your roof at your own cost. Also, without a valid BRCC you will encounter trouble when it comes to selling your property.
We will advise on all reroofs whether an upgrade of insulation is required.
