Terms & Conditions
Briggs Roofing guarantees that if within a period of (length of guarantee) years (from date of installation), the installation becomes defective by reason of a fault in the installation or fixing procedure resulting in a leak arising in the installation, the installer undertakes to repair that section of the roof free of charge.
Unfortunately no responsibility can be accepted by Briggs Roofing for pooling water on flat roof surfaces. This will not affect your guarantee and standing water will not damage your roof. If you think that standing water will be an issue on your roof, please make this clear before work commences.

This is to be determined by Briggs Roofing.
Briggs Roofing and Employees of Briggs Roofing must be given free access to the roof during normal business hours in order to inspect or repair the roof.

This does not include wear- through excessive foot-traffic, subsidence, vandalism, exposure to chemicals, or leaks not attributed to the installation such as leaks from flashings, gutters and un-encapsulated parapet walls.

This guarantee does not cover colour fade, standing water, aesthetic defects or other issues that do not result in a leak within the installation.
