Welcome to SF Roofing the Wiltshire Roofing 0333 456 5202 Experts

S.F. Roofing has been trading in the Wiltshire and surrounding counties since 1989. The proprietor Steve Friend has some invaluable information if you need the services of a roofing company.

"I have been in the roofing trade for 30 years, so I know a little about roofing. One thing that I have learned over that time is that you do get what you pay for, and that is a reflection of most things that we pay for, special offers, deals, a mate of a mate, saving a few pennies now normally costs you a few pounds later. So if your looking for a deal or a cut price roof please look elsewhere. There are companies out there that offer these deals, but normally they inflate their price to start with".

"I have built up a reputation of good work that lasts and I aim to keep it that way. You may / may not pay a little more, but I can assure you it will pass the test of time. I feel that no matter how good a job you do you are only remembered by the last bad one. I hope that this site will be helpful to you and over time it will be more and more informative as it is added to."

To be sure if you need a new roof and to ensure that the roof system installed will be appropriate for your home, call in a qualified professional roofer. He will check out the tiles/slates, the flashings and the attic ventilation and then recommend remedial action that should be taken.

Homeowners are often unsure about how to go about selecting the best roofer for the job. If you understand what makes a good roof and follow some very basic common sense rules, the selection process is simplified.

Basic Rules for Selecting Roofers
  • Ask for several quotes - three should give you a good idea of what a new roof for your home is worth.
  • Avoid unmarked white vans, cold callers, a mate of a mate, mobile numbers and verbal quotations/estimates. Ensure you have an address and land line number in case things do go wrong.
  • Always compare apples with apples. Make sure that the roofers quote on the same basis - including like tiles /slates, felts, eave protector, proper ventilation, etc.
  • Most often, roofing problems that do occur are not related to manufacturing defects but to installation. Roof warranties do not cover improper installation, so be sure your roofer will stand behind his work. .
  • Ask for references. And don't be shy about checking with the homeowners given as references.
  • Check out jobs being done in your area. Watch closely for the care the installers take in applying the materials. Neighbors who've had roofs done could be good - though not always the best - sources of information. Back up their references with your own visual inspection.
  • Your local Builders Merchant is a valuable source of information for any renovation project. Their roofing experts can also provide you with a list of reliable contractors.

Know What You are Getting for the Money

  • A good roofer will not cut corners to lower the price.
  • Once your selection has been made, be sure the job is done to your specifications and to your satisfaction.
  • Be home when the job is being done.
  • If any additional work, such as deck or chimney repairs etc, is required, you should be notified before the work proceeds.

You are not expected to be a roofing expert, but it helps to know the basics. If something the installers do begs a question, ask the crew foreman while he is there. Again, don't be shy; it's your roof and your money.
