Is it possible to get a guarantee on the roofing works or materials?

Having a roof installed or renovated isn’t an investment you decide on overnight. You try to gather as much information as possible, request quotes and routinely set aside savings for it. You’ll also need to settle on a good roofer who can be entrusted with the roof installation.

Choosing and purchasing the right products is one thing, but it goes without saying that you also want good value for money and to make sure that you’ll benefit from your investment for a long time to come. That’s why it’s extremely beneficial to find out about the guarantees, in addition to the technical and product information. We give you an overview of that information below.
