Roofing Contractor Brisbane


Obtain at least two quotes as this will give you the chance to compare and evaluate their products, features, installation practices, pricing, warranty of roofing products and the after install written warranty by the roofing contractor or much better find a roofing repair company on Top4 to compare.


Get recommendations from relatives, friends, and neighbours to see if there are any complaints have been lodged against the roofing contractor you're considering. You may also like to check their website and social media pages or even their Top4 listing to find further information in order to choose a roofing company to work with.

Always ask

Ask your roofing contractor for a list of references and past clients' contact so you can call to find out if they were satisfied with the work done on their roof and you may also ask your roofing contractor for proof that show that they have been approved by the roofing manufacturer to install or work on you have chosen. 

Insurance is important

Make sure that your roofing contractor has liability insurance and worker's compensation. Ask to see the certificates and actually contact the insurance company to confirm that they are legit and valid. This keeps all bids on a level playing field, knowing that part of the cost of the roofing service being provided to you is protected with the security of coverage. 

Price is not everything

Never choose a roofing contractor based on price. Cheap bids drive down the market and anyone with proper insurance has to establish pricing to cover such costs.

Those that do work on the side or just operating out of a pick-up truck can always to the work cheaper. But in the long run, you get what you pay for. Clients that are sold price as their sole criteria ultimately end up spending more money to fix problems and many of these problems could be avoided by choosing a reputable established roofing company.

Always go local

Make sure that the roofing company that you will get is local. This means that they are not just operating locally now, but have an established business and reputation in the community. And there will be a less chance of potential issues or scams when you choose a roofing contractor from your community. They are more familiar with local rules and code regulations and have a relationship with area crews and suppliers.
