What is the Scheme?
CompetentRoofer is a Competent Person Scheme for the self-certification of refurbishment roof work for all roofing disciplines and sectors. The formal definition of the scheme as defined by the Government is as follows:
'The installation, as a replacement of the covering of a pitched or flat roof and work carried out by the registered person as a necessary adjunct to that installation.'
If 50% or more of your roof covering needs to be replaced, and that roof acts as a thermal element, then the work is reportable to the Local Authority Building Control. However you can use one of our members and they can self-certify that their roof refurbishment work complies with the Building Regulations in England and Wales.
The scope of the scheme as outlined below applies when 50% or more of a roof is being replaced.
