Who to Choose
Not all roof restoration companies are created equal so before you hit the roof when presented with a high bill or your roof repair or painting isn't completed to your standards; follow this quick checklist to choosing the best roof restoration company in Sydney.
Are they licensed?
A reputable roof restoration company should be fully licensed. This will ensure that the roof restoration company is committed to quality workmanship, upholding a professional approach and providing quality customer service. You can check whether a roof restoration company has a licence by visiting the NSW Fair Trading website.
Robert Chapman, the owner of Southwest Roofing, has a license issued by the NSW Department of Fair Trading and is also accredited by Dulux Australia.
Are they insured?
All roof restoration companies are required under NSW legislation to have the following insurance:
- public liability insurance - this covers the roof restoration company if anyone is injured as a result of the roof repair or roof painting. If the builder or tradesperson does not have this type of insurance, you could be liable because you own the property.
- workers compensation or WorkCover insurance - this covers employees who are injured on the building site. If employers are not insured, you could be liable to pay the costs of any claim.
- contract works insurance - this covers the loss or damage to materials and work. If the roof restoration company does not hold this insurance, you are at risk of delays and inconvenience if materials are damaged or lost.
The NSW Fair Trading Department outlines the different types of insurance required for roof restoration companies on their website.
Southwest Roofing have 10 million dollars of public liability insurance as well as WorkCover insurance and contract works insurance. This insurance is for roof repairs, painting and roof restoration in Sydney for both body corporate and domestic property. This gives you peace of mind in the unlikely event that there should be any damage to your property as a result of our work, accidents on the building site or lost or damaged materials in transit.
Are they backed by any major product brand?
As well as having adequate insurance, it is essential to check whether the roof restoration company is backed by a paint brand who may offer an additional guarantee on the roof restoration companies' work. Southwest Roofing is backed by Dulux's 10 year guarantee on our roof restoration and painting.
The man selling you the service, is he the one doing the job or is he a salesman?
Salesmen are usually paid via commission and this is factored into the price of a roof restoration and thus, increases the cost. Look for a reputable roof restoration company that does not employ sales people and has low overheads but does not compromise on quality and customer service and then compare the cost of roof restoration with other companies who employ salespeople who draw a regular salary and commission.
