How to avoid rogue rooflight traders

Over the last few years there has been a sharp rise in the number of rogue rooflight traders in the UK. We run down the reasons why avoiding rogue rooflight traders is so important and what you can do to avoid falling victim to a scam.

Common rogue trader tactics

Rogue rooflight traders will rely on a number of tactics to reel you in, including unannounced visits to your home and putting leaflets through doors. Reputable companies will very rarely adopt these practices, so it’s always best to err on the side of caution and avoid engaging in further service with these companies or individuals.

It is also worth considering the fact that rogue rooflight traders may lie about the capabilities of their products. Common issues with sub-spec rooflights include water leaks, poor thermal efficiency and easily shattered glass. It is therefore important that you ensure the rooflights you purchase are up to the task.
