CORONAVIRUS: IMPACT ON ROOFING CONTRACTORS

Specific advice regarding how the outbreak continues to impact you, your employees or your business, see the NFRC guidance at www.nfrc.co.uk/coronavirus.

CORONAVIRUS: HOMEOWNERS and COMMERCIAL WORKS

Coronavirus continues to have an impact on the UK roofing industry and is likely to do so for many months. CompetentRoofer Contractors will only continue to work where it is safe to do so:-

HOMEOWNERS—Rest assured that all work performed will be in accordance with Government guidelines in terms of travelling to site, practising social distancing and regular hand washing. Our Contractors have been advised to contact you before work commences, to check if the work can proceed safely. Their work is in an open space so they can operate without placing the homeowner at risk.

COMMERCIAL WORKS—Contractors must follow Site Operating Procedures (SOPs) and all other site-specific guidelines. Further guidance is available at www.nfrc.co.uk/coronavirus.

Homeowners

If 50% or more of your roof needs to be renewed*, then under the Building Regulations, you must upgrade your installation to the current minimum standard and your Local Authority needs to be notified a minimum of 48 hours before work commences. Failure to comply could result in an enforcement notice from your Local Authority, and you will face difficulties when you decide to sell your property.
