The National Federation of Roofing Contractors Limited (NFRC) is the UK’s largest roofing trade association, representing over 70% of the roofing industry by value. With a history spanning almost 120 years, NFRC has established itself as the voice of the roofing industry, constantly adapting to change and innovation to ensure its members are at the forefront.
Britain has one of the oldest housing stocks in Europe, many of them in conservation areas. Also there are many thousands of other listed buildings such as churches, civic buildings, old factories, mills, farmhouses cottages and country buildings, as well as stately homes and so on.
They are all part of our nation’s famous and very special heritage and when it comes to their repair and renovation they demand extra special workmanship and attention to detail. To help ensure that the roofs, at least, on these precious buildings are restored to the highest possible standards NFRC established a National Heritage Roofing Contractors Register.
The National Heritage Roofing Contractors Register is fully endorsed by Historic England, Cadw Welsh Historic Monuments, the Environment and Heritage Service for Northern Ireland, Historic Scotland, The National Heritage Training Group and CITB.
CompetentRoofer is a Government-licenced Competent Person Scheme that allows professional roofing contractors to self-certify that their roof refurbishment work complies with Building Regulations within England and Wales.
TrustMark is a quality mark which operates a framework under which 30 Scheme Operators work in the RMI (repair, maintenance and improvement) sector, including trade associations, local government trading standards teams, and independent Scheme Operators. These schemes are approved to carry the TrustMark logo and recruit reputable and trustworthy tradesmen. This enables the TrustMark Scheme Operators to promote improved RMI sector standards, and tackle related issues such as better enforcement. All of these Scheme Operators are audited annually by TrustMark, to ensure processes, standards and complaint procedures are being maintained.
