Welcome to CompetentRoofer

CompetentRoofer is the Government-licenced Competent Person Scheme for England and Wales that allows professional roofing contractors to self-certify that their roof refurbishment work complies with Building Regulations. The scheme encompasses all roofing types for domestic, industrial and commercial properties and is open to all roofing contractors to apply.

If 50% or more of your roof needs to be replaced, then under the Building Regulations, your Local Authority needs to be notified a minimum of 48 hours before work commences.  If you don’t then you risk a fine of up to £5,000, plus the cost of putting the work right if it isn’t up to the required standards.

CompetentRoofer is a Government-licenced Competent Person Scheme that allows roofers to self-certify their own roof refurbishment work as compliant with the Building Regulations.  By using a CompetentRoofer member, property owners will save not only time and money but will have the added reassurance that the work carried out meets the exacting standards of the Building Regulations.

  • Regulation – CompetentRoofer members are compliant and up to date with the Building Regulations.
  • Reliability – CompetentRoofer members are professional contractors who are thoroughly audited and inspected prior to acceptance and undergo regular inspections thereafter.
  • Reassurance – Domestic roofing works registered via CompetentRoofer automatically receive a 10 year insurance-backed insolvency guarantee (also available for commercial/industrial works).
  • Green Deal/ECO – CompetentRoofer is a UKAS accredited Certification Body; its members can apply to be audited and inspected against the requirements of PAS 2030 and the Green Deal Code of Practice, allowing them to be registered with the Green Deal Oversight and Registration Body and undertake Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation (ECO) work.
