You may think that saving money and hiring and slightly less qualified roofing contractor is the best course of action, but this will all but certainly end in tears! Here at RJW Roofing & Building, we take great pride in our status as a leading roofing contractor, since we know how important it is for customers that they are handed industry approved workmanship for any projects.

There are a host of benefits that come from selecting proven names over amateur cowboys, not least the productivity levels and attention to detail. So, here is an overall look at why it’s so incredibly important to choose roofing companies that come with both the required qualifications and legitimacy to complete things properly.

High Quality Materials

Choosing a reputable roofing company means you are likely to benefit from their connections with leading suppliers. Any smaller firms are probably stretched with their own budget, which means they will commonly take their materials from much cheaper establishments.

Safety Awareness

Roofing is obviously a fairly dangerous profession which makes accidents a regular occurrence. Any proven contractor will likely have experienced certain problems before, allowing them to draw on past events to find a solution quickly.

Skill & Expertise

No matter how complex the roofing tasks may be, having experienced roofers will ensure any problems are eradicated in the most efficient way. This means installations for solar panels and thatched roofs are likely to be too much of an ask for smaller firms.


Any established firm will have been through the right courses to ensure both you and their team are fully protected throughout the entirety of the project. This is so important should an accident occur!

Effective Time Management

Whenever roofing work is taking place, the presence of tradesmen and their materials could cause disruption over your daily routine. Hiring efficient teams will ensure you are only exposed to loud equipment for a very short period of time.

Reliable Tools & Equipment

Another area in which amateur firms will look to cut the costs would be with the equipment they use. This is another reason to select proven companies since their team will all come with the latest roofing innovation and technology to help get projects over the line much quicker.


Big roofing companies only get their name from providing outstanding customer-service to everyone they work for. One of the most common methods in which to establish a good reputation would be providing warranties on both materials and workmanship.
