The CompetentRoofer scheme was initially created in 2006 by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors Limited (NFRC). NFRC wanted to create a scheme that brought reputable contractors together with members of the public looking to comply with the relevant Building Regulations for roofing.

As of the 1st October 2010, NFRC gained UK Government authorisation to set-up the only Competent Person Scheme for the roof refurbishment market in England & Wales. CompetentRoofer now has contractors all over England & Wales, who are registering 10,000s roofing projects each year with that number consistently growing.

CompetentRoofer Ltd provides certification to the roofing industry as a Competent Person scheme operator under Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) Building Regulations for the replacement of roof coverings on all roof types.

When 50% or more of the roof is being replaced, it is a legally requirement to notify the Local Authority Building Control (LABC) and comply with the relevant Building Regulations. CompetentRoofer registered contractors are authorised to self-certify their roof refurbishment work complies with the Building Regulations, and CompetentRoofer notifies the relevant LABC when the work is taking place, and once the work has been completed.

Not only does CompetentRoofer recognise the skills, and competencies of professional Roofing Contractors but the scheme alleviates the hassle, and cost of requiring the involvement of LABC or an Approved Inspector.


The most accurate way to confirm a contractor is a CompetentRoofer is to use the postcode search, where you can find registered contractors near you and their contact details.

Contractors registered with the scheme are issued with and are authorised to use the CompetentRoofer logo. You’ll usually find this on their quotations and other communications.

When a contractor becomes a full CompetentRoofer, they receive a membership certificate with their unique membership number which is renewed annually. You can request a copy of this document from your contractor at any time.
