Our History

We have grown year on year since inception and are now one of the largest privately owned flat roofing contractors in the North of England. The secret to our growth has been simple; we listen to our client’s needs, and then deliver high quality projects, professionally, safely and on time. We are proud to have ongoing relationships with many blue chip clients such the NHS, Kellogg’s, Unilever, ASDA and British Aerospace.
