Choosing a Roofing Contracter

Peché Roofing takes pride in their work and are enthusiastic about the possibility of helping you solve your roofing needs. The training and experience provided, as well as the age of our company, will help you determine our ability to successfully complete your roofing project.

We will give you the best value rather than a lower cost, as the work is carried out according to the manufacturers specifications using quality products. Failing to realise that a quality roofing material installed improperly by poor workmanship will loose all of its value, even though your money has already been spent.

Remember that a quality roof repair carried out by a professional, adds value to your home/office and can do much more than just keep your building dry.

Guidelines For Selecting A Roofing Contractor Company

  • Check for a permanent place of business, telephone number, VAT number, Company registration number, website address etc.
  • Make sure they have sufficient liability insurance, and an up to date Workmans Compensation certificate.
  • Look for an established company with a proven track record. ( Beware of ‘ bakkie ’ type builders and fly by night companies.)
  • Insist on a written proposal and examine it for a complete description of the work being carried out, and ensure that the work is being carried out according to the Manufacturers specifications.
  • Check to see if the company is a member of any industry organisations, that may be of assistance to the client if problems arise.( eg. Master Builders Association, NHBRC, Waterproofing Association of Gauteng ).
  • Request the details of the Project Supervisor, how many workers will be required, and the estimated duration of the project.
  • Carefully read and understand the Proposal. Keep a healthy scepticism about the lowest proposal. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Look out for waterproofing contractors who seal broken tiles and ridges, instead of replacing them with new, according to the manufacturers specifications. Sealing tiles and ridges, requires regular maintenance, and this ends up costing a lot more in the long term.
  • Remember that price is only one criterion for selecting a roofing contractor. Professionalism and quality workmanship should weigh heavily on your decision.
  • Carry out regular maintenance with one roofing contractor. Our personal statistics have shown that at least 90% of all Insurance claims are rejected due to lack of maintenance with a reputable roofing contractor.
  • Check out the guarantee period. A typical guarantee is one year or longer.The length of the guarantee doesn’t matter so much, as to whether the contractor plans to stand behind the guarantee. Professional Roofing companies often work beyond their written guarantee if the problem was due to poor workmanship.
