Choosing a Roofing Contractor

A good roof is one of the most important parts of your home.  When it comes to roofing projects, a big investment deserves the best person for the job.  Many people find choosing a roofing contractor intimidating.  Whether you are replacing, fixing, or installing a new roof, Covertek has some advice and useful tips to help you out!

Switching Roofs


  • The company is registered at The Building Industry Bargaining Council (BIBC).

  • The company has sufficient liability insurance.

  • They are willing to provide contactable references.

  • They are willing to give written estimates.

  • They offer guarantee on workmanship and offer product warranties.

  • Safety is a priority.


  • Get at least three roofing contractors to look at the job.

  • Meet the contractor in person and ask each to give advice on materials and process they would suggest to solve your problem.

  • Ensure they have a cleanup strategy to remove or dispose of old roofing materials.

  • Agree on a timeline.  Talk through estimated completion dates, ordering materials, and any prep work required.

  • Support local businesses.

Never automatically take the cheapest option. 

Base your opinion of the quality of advice given and your confidence of the contractor.
