Choosing the right fascia, soffit and guttering fitter
If you’re looking for a guttering, fascia and soffit fitter, it’s good to shop around and do some digging. After all, you want to ensure you get the most out of your investment. But how do you pick out the reputable businesses from the rest? In this blog, we take a closer look at how to spot a trustworthy roofline repair contractor and the questions you should be asking before you make your final decision.
Are they promising a quick fix?
Here at Roofline Design, we don’t believe in quick fixes. We believe in a job well done! Unfortunately, overcladding is often offered as a cheap, quick solution to fix up your roofline but in our experience, it can cause more problems than it solves.
In fact, many of our clients have come to us to repair the damage caused by cheap overcladding. If a contractor is advising you to use overcladding rather than investing in roofline repairs that will protect your home for years to come, it’s time to move on and continue your search.
Can you see examples of their work?
Just like with any other product or service, you want to see what you’re spending your money on. Before you settle on a guttering, fascia and soffit fitter, take a closer look at their website or social media. Do they have a gallery or portfolio of work?
Any respectable business should be proud to show off their hard work, backed up by customer testimonials. Steer clear of fitters that don’t back up their service offering with examples of work.
Do they have good reviews?
When finding yourself a fascia, soffit and guttering installer, you should check websites like Checkatrade for company information, reviews and testimonials. Are they a reputable service provider, or have they left a trail of untidy roofline disasters in their wake?
Customer reviews can help you get a better idea of the quality of work and level of customer service you can expect. After all, you want to know your fitter is as polite and punctual as they are skilled.
Roofline Design is proud to boast a rating of 9.83 out of 10 on Checkatrade, with hundreds of positive testimonials from happy customers – just like this one:
Absolutely fantastic work. All materials used are of exceptional quality. Workmanship is second to none. I wouldn’t waste time looking for a cheaper quote and I couldn’t be happier with the finished product.

Do they offer any guarantees?
If you’re investing in your home’s roofline, you want to make sure you’re getting the absolute best from your investment. Find yourself a roofline repair company that offers a warranty on their products and services.
Our Roofline Design team are experts in their field, we supply only the highest quality products and we’ve got the testimonials to prove it. We’re so confident in our people and all our uPVC products that we offer a 20-year guarantee. You can rest easy in the knowledge that your roofline will retain its appearance and function for 20 years from the date of installation (under natural weather conditions).
When do they expect payment?
You should never be asked to pay the full amount up front – if you are asked to do this, start looking elsewhere. Some contractors, on the other hand, will ask you to put down an initial deposit.
Roofline Design begin by offering a free, no-obligation quote for all required work. We never ask for a deposit on our roofline work. When the work is complete, we invite you to inspect it with us to ensure you are entirely happy with the end results. We don’t ask for payment on any job until we’re satisfied that you’re satisfied.
