Why join CompetentRoofer?

CompetentRoofer is a Government-licenced Competent Person Scheme that allows roofing contractors to self-certify their own roof refurbishment work as compliant with the Building Regulations in England and Wales. 

The process is simple:

1.  Registered contractors logs the work online, 5 days prior to commencing on site.
2.  When the roof refurbishment work is completed, the contractor notifies us.
3.  CompetentRoofer issue the building owner with a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate               (BRCC) and notify the relevant Local Authority with the correct paperwork that the work has been           completed. No need to wait for a Local Authority Inspection.

Additional benefits of being a CompetentRoofer:

  • Applies to reportable roof refurbishment work on all types of buildings – domestic, commercial or industrial – no job is too big or too small.
  • A ten year insolvency guarantee is included with notification of roof refurbishment works up to a value of £50,000 (including access and VAT) where the building height is four storeys or less.
  • Added peace of mind for your clients; we audit and inspect our members upon application and inspect at least twice per year thereafter.
  • Website listing; members of the public can find a CompetentRoofer near them, leading to increased business.
  • Members can log into a members area on our website to view and download our Building Regulations Handbook and leaflets for clients.
  • CompetentRoofer members can also apply to be accredited as Green Deal approved Installers to undertake Green Deal and ECO work.
