Five Tips for Choosing a Roofer in Edinburgh


Knowing the right roofer to hire for your home can be a daunting task. We’ve put together five tips to help you find the best solution for your roofing needs.

Number one: Choose local

Choose a roofing company that works in your area to help with any further assistance after the work is complete. 

Often, the difficulty with roofers who cold-call at your doorstep is that they might just be passing through. Ask questions and find out the area your roofer typically provides a service to. 

At Stuart & Moffat Roofing, we cover East Lothian, Midlothian, and Edinburgh.

Number two: Check testimonials

Many good roofing contractors find their work through word of mouth, so be sure to ask around and choose a company with great reviews. 

Solid testimonials will help you to get an understanding of how the company works and whether or not they provide a quality service.

Ask to see examples of their work and find out what accreditations they have. These are all examples that will give you peace of mind when choosing the right roofer for your Edinburgh property.

Number three: Get a free quote

A quality roofer will provide you with a free consultation and quote. A good roofing company will also talk you through the various options for your roof, without putting you under any pressure to make a decision. 

If the roofer turns up on time, answers and returns your calls, and does what they say they’re going to do, this is a positive indication of reliability and trustworthiness.

At Stuart & Moffat Roofing, we pride ourselves on delivering roofing excellence and high-quality customer care.

Number four: Don’t be swayed by the price

Inevitably, you’ll want good value for money from a roofing company in Edinburgh, but a cheap quote alone shouldn’t be the determining factor. 

The important thing is the quality of workmanship and materials used. A cheap job done badly using shoddy materials will prove a costly issue in the long run.

We pride consistent and transparent communication and pricing throughout your project.

Number five: Check for insurance

If you only check one thing, let it be that the roofer you choose has insurance. 

Having insurance not only covers the work they carry out on your property, but it also includes insurance for your home too.

The company should also have insurance in place for their employees. If one of their employees was to fall off your roof and hurt themselves, it could turn into a legal dispute.
