Insurance Backed Guarantee
First make sure the guarantee you are getting is insurance-backed.
Don’t just accept a roofing company’s guarantee. The minimum period should be 10 years; longer guarantees are available up to 25 years, but the premiums are really expensive.
Don’t fall for this trick.
Some roofers are selling insurance-backed guarantees as 20 year policies, but these are actually two ten year policies running back to back! They suggest that after the first ten year period runs out they will renew the policy with another 1o year policy, therefore giving a 20 year insurance-backed guarantee.
Roofing Guarantees Explained
I’ve been working with Steve Dickinson of London Flat Roofing for almost 10 years and to this day I have not come across anyone with more knowledge on London flat roofs. From leak detection to maintenance, Steve has a wealth of knowledge in all aspects of flat roofing.
Our flat roof was previously installed by cowboy builders. Steve did a fantastic job or un-doing their shoddy work and rectifying all of the issues they had caused. No more leaks and no mess either. The price was fair and they got the job done very quickly.
I came back off holiday to find that the flat roof above my kitchen had been leaking and flooded the house. I called and spoke to Steve who came out the same day and within hours he had identified the leak. The very next day he sent out 2 roofers who fixed the leak. Steve then helped me claim through my insurance policy. Very pleased and grateful for his help.
Steve from London Flat Roofing was very knowledgeable. We had several contractors trying to find the issue with our leaking flat roof prior to getting Steve to look at it. After surveying it with a thermal imaging camera Steve was able to pinpoint the exact location of the leak and fixed it there and then. Very pleased and would definitely recommend to others.
