The Process

Once you have agreed to go ahead with the roofing installation, our team will get to work. The first thing that they will do is protect your property from any debris or damage. They will do this by putting down tarps and scaffolding if needed.

Next, they will start to remove the old roof. This process can take a few hours or even a few days depending on the size of your roof. Once the old roof is removed, they will dispose of it in an eco-friendly way.

After the old roof has been removed, our team will start to install the new roof. This process can also take a few hours or days depending on the size can take a few hours or days depending on the size and complexity of your roof. Once the new roof is finished, they will do a final check to make sure that everything is secure and there are no leaks.

Different Roof Types

There are many different types of roofing materials that you can choose from and your roofing company will be able to advise you on the best type for your property. The most common roofing materials are asphalt shingles, metal roofs, slate roofs, and tile roofs.

Asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing material in the UK and one of the most affordable. Metal roofs are a more durable option and they can last for up to 50 years. Slate roofs are a luxury option and they can last for over 100 years. Tile roofs are also a popular choice, especially in warmer climates.

You should always choose a roofing material that is compatible with the rest of your property. For example, if you have a thatched roof then you should not install an asphalt shingle roof as it would not look right.

Warranties & Guaranties

Most roofing companies offer a warranty or guarantee on their work. This means that if there are any problems with the roof after they have finished, they will be able to fix it free of charge. You should always ask your roofing company if they offer any warranties or guarantees before you agree to have them carry out the work.


Choosing the right roofing material is an important decision and your roofing company will be able to advise you on the best type for your property. They will also be able to provide a warranty or guarantee on their work, so you can rest assured that you are getting a quality service.
