How to Choose the Right Roofing Supplier and Installer

Over its lifetime, your home endures all sorts of things, from wild rain and the blazing sun to pests and salt spray. Your roof is your first line of defence, and if you take care of it, you, in essence, take care of the entire structure of your property.

Whether you’re jumping into a brand-new build or looking for a replacement roof on an existing property, the team at Aspect Roofing is here to help you find the perfect roofing supplier

In today’s blog post, we’re reviewing five key factors that will help you select a supplier and installer. We’ll also share our experience and show how we measure up across these vital considerations.

Without any further ado, let’s dive in!

Reputation and Experience

Begin your search by thoroughly checking the reputation and experience of your chosen roofing supplier. You want to find a company with a solid track record of consistently delivering great service, and there’s nowhere better to find that knowledge than by checking in with the customers who came before you.

Look for online reviews, check out similar projects, and even ask for references if you want to be extra sure. A company with years of experience and a robust portfolio of happy customers will be more likely to produce the same experience for you.

How we measure up: Aspect Roofing has been in business since 2007, and since then, we’ve built up a lot of great testimonials from satisfied customers. We’ve also carefully captured many of the projects we’ve worked on in our project gallery to allow incoming customers to learn more about how we work.

Licensing

Next, one of the most important things to check is whether your chosen roofing supplier is appropriately licensed. In New Zealand, all restricted building work must be carried out or supervised by a Licensed Building Practitioner (LBP). This license ensures your supplier knows how to safely design, source, install, and maintain your roof.

How we measure up: At Aspect Roofing, we’re proud to be Licensed Building Practitioners (LBP), which ensures you’re getting a job that’s up to code and of a high standard. We’re also members of the Roofing Association of NZ, which connects us to a wide network of peripheral suppliers to help you complete your project efficiently.

Commitment to Safety

Working at a height comes with a whole set of potential hazards. That’s why it’s so important to contract a roofing supplier and installer with a clear commitment to safety. Look for safety certifications or memberships with organisations like Hazard Co. and SiteSafe in New Zealand.

How we measure up: At Aspect, we recognise the importance of ensuring the safety of our staff and clients while we work. As members of Hazard Co. and SiteSafe, we have extensive Health and Safety procedures in place and ensure our staff follow them to the letter.

Quality of Materials

Your roof is your first and last defence against New Zealand’s wild subtropical weather system. In other words, it needs to withstand a lot, which means quality materials are just as important as the quality of the roof’s installation.

Quality is key for metal roofing, in particular. When choosing your roofing supplier, pay attention to the materials they provide for your new roof’s installation. Are they clear about which suppliers they partner with? What guarantees are included in the offer?

How we measure up: We partner with various roofing suppliers in New Zealand, including COLORSTEEL, Colorcote, and New Zealand Steel, to ensure our customers get the best.

Communication and Customer Service

Finally, whether you’re building a new property or replacing your roof, it can be complex to coordinate. For new builds, you’ll most likely have on-site construction teams that your roofing team will need to liaise with.

For roof replacements, your roofing team needs to be clear and communicative as they coordinate with you to safely remove and replace your home’s existing roof.

Either way, partnering with a supplier that prioritises communication and great customer service is vital. The best way to determine if a supplier values its customers in this way is to look back through customer reviews and assess their communication style during your initial contact.

How we measure up: We offer decades of combined experience in the roofing industry, putting clear communication and great customer service at the heart of our business. If you’re happy, we’re happy. That’s why we offer free, no-obligation quotes on roofing work as well as 10-year  workmanship warranties on all installations.
