We have pledged our support for a four-year accreditation programme focused on ensuring best practice across the sector.
We are now a member of RoofCERT, funded by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC).
The programme aims to establish an industry recognised ​accreditation standard for a roofing installer, supported and ​recognised by consumers and the construction supply chain.
It focuses on upskilling the workforce, attracting new talent, improving efficiency, encouraging the use of new technology and improving the image of the sector.

Jackie Biswell said: “Recent research found the roofing sector is plagued by fear of rogue traders. This emphasises just how important accreditation programmes like RoofCERT are to businesses like ours who want to embrace best practice and support the growth of the industry. Roofers without the correct qualifications and commitment to quality do a disservice to the many true professionals within our industry.”
