A Guide to Finding Reliable Roofers in Wellington

In New Zealand’s beautiful 150 year old capital city (and the world’s southern-most capital), located smack bang on the tip of the South Island and separated from the North Island only by Cook Strait, the weather may be cold but it has its fair share of tourist attractions that as a local you just love too. From the cable car, to the beaches and bays, Zealandia and Mount Victoria, along with getting to spot dolphin pods on the regular, Wellington is just a little slice of heaven. And let’s not forget the Lord of the Rings references.

Like any capital city, Wellington homeowners have to do their fair share of maintenance on their houses. In this quick guide you’ll be able to find out about Wellington’s best local roofers: what they do, how to spot a good one, and where you can find them.

Jobs Your Roofer Can Do

  • Residential roofing
  • Remove and dispose of asbestos roofing
  • Clean a dirty roof
  • Replace or repair broken and split roof tiles
  • Fix a leaking roof and/or fix a leaking ceiling
  • Do all your gutter work - replace gutters, clean gutters, install gutterguards, install spouting, install down pipe
  • Erect a new roof
  • Organize a new roof install
  • Repair roof parts
  • Roof sealing
  • Roof pointing / roof repointing
  • Paint roof
  • Check roof for problem areas
  • Roofing carpenters can do structural roof work

Roofing contractors also work with a wide range of roofing materials: Colorbond, tin, cooper, tile, shingles, slate, corrugated iron, other metal, and others – just ask!

A Good Roofer Will Be Able To

  • Explain your job in layman’s terms
  • Give you honest answers and estimates
  • Provide proof of complete insurance
  • Provide good reviews, and contactable references
  • Have the correct qualifications, available to present to you upon request
  • Provide a guarantee on the job they do (materials providers should also provide a warranty on the material
  • Inspect your roof and situation fully before providing a quote
  • Give you a no-obligation quote on the job to be done - that will outline where all the charges will be from including workmanship and materials
  • Involve you in constructing a fair contract, which you don’t need to sign on the spot
  • Explain to you whether you need to seek council approval for the roofing job

Where to Find a Good Roofer

If you haven’t had a glowing recommendation put forward from a friend already, it can be difficult to find the right professional roofing contractor for your roofing task. Builderscrack take the effort out of doing the old ring around.

Post your detailed roofing job online, and the contractors will find you. Let them bid for your job and screen each one before deciding. Roofing work can range in price for what kind of job you’re after – a small spot repair can cost less than $100 with a cheap provider, whereas a full roof can stretch into the tens of thousands of dollars, depending on which material you choose to go with.
