Why join CompetentRoofer?

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 in England and Wales. 

The process is simple:

1.  Members register the job on our website before they start work.
2.  No need to wait for a Local Authority inspection. When the roof refurbishment work is completed
     members notify us.
3.  We issue the building owner with a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate and notify the
     relevant Local Authority with the correct paperwork that the work has been completed.


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.
  • Help reduce the number of clients going to ‘cowboy’ builders who offer cheap, uninsured and unregulated work.

What's the joining process?

To join all you need to do is tell us that you wish to become a member, supply us with your company name and full contact details, and we will start the application process for you by sending you an email with login details for our website where you can complete an online registration form and upload the necessary supporting documents.  

Once the application form is complete and the supporting documents and joining fee received, then your application will be reviewed and submitted for a probity check.  After that check is complete, a membership audit will be carried out by one of our surveyors and the audit report reviewed by our Technical Manager.

If your company has passed these checks we would approve your application and you would become a member of the scheme; you would then be able to log jobs on our online system and thereby self-certify your own roof refurbishment work.
