Choosing a Roofing Company in Brisbane - How To Avoid the Duds

Repairing or replacing your roof can be a big project, so it’s important to choose the right roofing company for your needs. 

There are many roofing companies in Brisbane, but not all have the same quality of workmanship. Here’s some quick tips to help you choose the right roofing company and avoid the duds. 


1. Check their qualifications and licences

Roofing is a specialised task and needs to be done by a professional. Hiring unqualified or inexperienced contractors increases the risk that your roof won’t be completed properly or that you will have to hire someone else to finish the job. 

Professional roofing companies should be fully licensed for works and services they provide. In Queensland the following licenses are required:

  • Queensland Building & Construction Commission roofing license
  • General licenses for nominee supervisors and trade contractors
  • Roof tiling/wall cladding license
  • Safe Work Method Statement (SMS)


2. Ask About Insurance

Professional roofing companies should have two types of insurance to cover for any issues that occur during the project:

  • Public Liability Insurance
  • Product Liability Insurance


3. Check Warranties and Guarantees

Always ask what warranties and guarantees they offer on their workmanship, materials and products. Guarantees on products depend on their quality, so look into the specifics of the materials and products they use.

For example, a professional company like Roo Roofing provides up to a 10 years installation warranty and manufacturer warranties of up to 36 years for your peace of mind with all roof replacement works.


4. Look at reviews & previous work

Reading customer reviews and testimonials gives you insight into their experiences with the company. Look on their website or social media for reviews, ratings and recommendations. 


Also looking at previous projects the company has completed is a great way to see if they provide a professional end result. 

At Roo Roofing, we have our past works easily accessible on our website so you can see for yourself the quality we guarantee!
