Checking if a company has trusted accreditations is the first step we recommended to you in the ‘How To Choose The Best Roofer’ checklist we created (https://taylorroofs.co.uk/how-to-choose-the-best-roofer/). By choosing a company that has trusted accreditations, you can rest assured that they are legitimate, trustworthy and have undergone a thorough vetting process. Meeting the trading standards also ensures companies adhere to the Code of Practice for their particular industry.
Another benefit of choosing a company that is listed in a well-established accreditation body is that you can see their reviews and compare them to other local suppliers. A trusted accreditation body can also in some instances, intervene in disputes when required.
Here is the list of the most trusted accreditations and trade bodies in the central belt, all of which Taylor Roofs are proud to be members of:
1. Edinburgh Trusted Trader: This scheme is backed and supported by Police Scotland and Citizens Advice. As a member we have been highly vetted by Trading Standard to qualify.

Here is an example of one of our customer reviews on the site:
Review Comment for value or work performed of £5001 – £25,000
After having numerous leaks despite having my roof redone last year I contacted Taylor Roofing. They were extremely professional, courteous & prompt. They took photos of my roof to show where the problems were & explained clearly how they would fix it. Throughout the work on my roof the communication was first class & I was always kept up to speed on what had been accomplished each day & what they hoped to achieve the next day.
