Send In The Experts! Finding A Roofer In Christchurch

Fix it, patch it, build it, you name it. Christchurch roofers can work wonders on your roof. Let the right roofing contractor find you.

If you’re standing out the front of your house, looking up at your roof and thinking, “This… this is not what I want to be seeing”, or even standing in the hallway watching water drip down from the ceiling onto your wooden floorboards, you need to get in a roofing professional.

The South Island Garden City in Canterbury, Christchurch (or you may well know it as Ōtautahi), has been growing steadily in size since it was settled. Living in Christchurch has it’s perks – going for a coffee at Black Betty’s, a picnic in the Botanic Gardens, or even just a stroll along the Avon. Even the earthquakes that have shaken Christchurch’s foundations can’t keep a good girl down, it’s even now known as ‘The City That Rocks’. There’s no shortage of things to do or tradies about – so how come you can never find the right one?

Well, you’ve come to the right place.

What Can A Roofer Do?

  • Give you a roof condition report
  • Clean a dirty roof
  • Repair a leaking roof and stop the ceiling dripping
  • Fix broken roof tiles and cracked roof tiles
  • Replace missing roof tiles that have fallen off
  • Repaint a faded roof
  • Construct a new roof from slate, tile, wood, tin, shingles, and other roofing materials
  • Conduct regular roof maintenance
  • Replace or install gutters, gutterguards, spouting and downpipes
  • Repoint your roof
  • Complete roof restoration
  • Do spot repairs on your roof
  • Roof asbestos removal and disposal

What To Look For In A Roofer?

We’re not talking about a beard, work boots, or stubbies here. Avoid getting a dodgy job done by sussing out your potential contractor first to ensure that you’re hiring a quality roofing professional. That’s right, don’t be nervous about asking to see their certificates and check up on their references.  Find out how many years they’ve been in business and whether they're a member of the Roofing Association of New Zealand or RANZ.  Remember to ask about warranties on work (which can range from 1 or 2 years up to 10 years, depending on the job) and make sure they’re up to date with their insurance for liability as well as worker’s comp.

An honest roofer will know exactly what you need and won’t beat around the bush. When the tradesperson comes out to inspect your roof they’ll be able to give you a rough estimate of the time and cost involved. Don’t be afraid to say no, or ask for a better price. This quote should always be free. If it’s a new roof, or a large job, they might require you check with the Council for Building Consent. Estimates for jobs can range from $90 for a small tile patch up job, up to $30,000 for a new 200m² slate roof.

Christchurch has a wealth of tradies, but in the past, you’ve had to go and find them yourself. It doesn’t matter if you live in Phillipstown, Burnside, Mt Pleasant or Queenspark, with Builderscrack you can post a job online and find a roofer to come out and get the job done for you in no time.
