Did you know that it is a legal requirement to notify the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) of roof refurbishment work involving 50% or more of the roof being replaced where there is a thermal element involved? Failure to do so can result in prosecution and a £5,000 fine.
CompetentRoofer is a government authorised Competent Person Scheme for England and Wales that allows professional roofing contractors to self-certify that their roof refurbishment work complies with Building Regulations. The scheme encompasses all roofing types for domestic, industrial and commercial properties and is open to all roofing contractors to apply.
CompetentRoofers can save time and money for consumers by not having to apply for a Building Notice prior to starting work. The scheme also allows consumers to easily identify reputable contractors, assuring that any work carried out is compliant and up to date with Building Regulations.
