Nick Brooks, Director of Martin-Brooks (Roofing Specialists) Ltd in Sheffield, explains why he decided to join the CompetentRoofer scheme:
‘We carry out a large amount of domestic work and saw this as a good opportunity to further promote ourselves as a professional company who can offer another service to the customer. The scheme seemed to offer us, as an NFRC member, a very good opportunity to stand out from the large crowd of domestic roofers. The new legislation for Building Regulations has meant a lot more work for local authorities and a lot more paperwork, not only for them, but for us as a roofing company and for customers.
Although many people still do not realise that it is a legal requirement to acquire Building Regulation approval, it is essential for us as a professional company to ensure we give this service to our customers. This scheme offers the perfect solution in removing the red tape, and reducing the cost for the customer whilst ensuring their peace of mind, knowing they are still complying with legal requirements.
The whole process is dealt with online and the simplicity of the system makes things run smoother and quicker as it removes the need for the middle man, making the administration aspect easier for us and for our customers.
Membership of CompetentRoofer has certainly brought us more work as people look for the whole package that we can now provide, and it makes the entire process much simpler and cheaper for the customer.’
