Their aim is to provide customers with a high quality roofing service with competitive pricing and great customer care. Being based in South West London, AB Roofing gives you the advantage of working with local, trusted and reliable tradesmen (I must admit there are many roofers in London and there were quite a few to consider; however, we had to choose one). Here are some of the  factors we used in determine which is the best roofing contractor in London.

Local referrals 

One of the first thing we recommend when looking for a roofer is getting local referrals. Whether from a site Like SmartGuy, a local London business network or of course, you can ask your friends and neighbors that have used them in the past for similar jobs. This will help in avoiding bad roofers. 


Make sure you choose a roofing contractor who has a great deal of experience in the type of work done that you need. If possible, ask to see photos of the work he has done and ask for a list of phone numbers of those people to speak with. Was the job done in a timely fashion? On budget? Were there any issues that occurred during the job? Have there been any problems since? If so, did he quickly handle them? 

Written Estimate

Get a detailed written estimate of exactly what he will do, including the materials, time it will take the roofer to complete the job, what will they will do if there is a problem and all documentation along the way. While you don’t expect to have a problem, it is good to be prepared just in case. Keep in mind that a new roof is a huge, costly investment. The cost of each individual roof varies, and you should work together with your selected roofer to discuss exactly what you need, including things such as skylights.

Extensive warranty

While many roofing contractors will provide a warranty, not all contractors can offer manufacturer warranties that will also include coverage of the contractor’s workmanship. The fact is that If a contractor installs the roof incorrectly, it may take months or even years for the damage to show up. At that point, the contractor may not fix it, or perhaps by then, they have gone out of business.

Licensing and Insurance

Make sure if you want the best roofer in London, that you choose a roofing contractor that is licensed and has insurance for all employees and subcontractors. He should provide you upon request  a copy of their insurance certificate. This is very important as otherwise you could be entangled in litigation between the contractor or his employees/laborers, subcontractors  if a roofing employee sustains an injury at the home. While most areas require licensing for contractors, that doesn’t not stop unlicensed contractors from attempting to do the roofing work. 

Insurance Claim

If there is an insurance claim, it is a good idea to handle it yourself and not rely on the roofer to do it. In many cases, it is in fact  illegal for contractors to act on behalf of the homeowner when negotiating an insurance claim. Therefore, any contractor who opens the door to potential legal action is not acting in your best interest.
