Confederation of Roofing Contractors

Welcome to our new monthly newsletter – The Roofing Trades Journal.

It has been an extremely busy year for us. We have gained many new trade and associate members, new office staff, new and improved office facilities, reached 9000 followers on LinkedIn, partnered with Safeaid UK and made the top 3 businesses for fast track growth in our area.

With your support we hope to continue to rid the industry of unscrupulous tradesmen who give roofing a bad reputation and to give customers peace of mind knowing that when they use an approved member of the CoRC they can be sure they have an approved and competent roofer.

Here’s to a prosperous November!


Insurance Backed Guarantees

The public are becoming more and more aware of insurance backed guarantees and we are receiving more and more calls regarding them. We are currently the only roofing association in the UK that can offer 10, 15 and 20 year insurance backed guarantees.

If you require any assistance or information on ordering insurance backed guarantees, please contact membership@corc.co.uk or call the office on 01206 306600.


CoRC Launches New Website

Our new website is live!

It has been completely rebuilt and comes with extra features to help make finding our members and news easier. New benefits include:

  • Scrolling banners for Associate members (these will be changed every month)
  • Location search for members closest to your location
  • All latest news including our ‘Featured Fridays’
  • A section for customers to tender jobs
  • 24 hour Emergency Call Out section
  • Enter Roof of the Month via the website and vote online for members to win.

Shortly a ‘member name’ search will be added to help find our members even easier

We urge members to take a look at their pages on the site as new sections have been added and to inform us of any changes we may need to make to ensure the site is as up to date as possible.

Safeaid UK – How can we help?

Here at the Confederation of Roofing Contractors we take Health & Safety very seriously, especially in our industry where working at height (WATH) remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries in the UK.

Occupational health complaints are still very high with respiratory ill health being one of the highest in the industry.

Our efforts to combat occupation illness and the safety and health for all our members and their employees is paramount.

The Confederation has decided that more needs to be done, and we have sourced a new partner to provide Health & Safety services to all our members.

As part of your membership to the Confederation, SafeAid UK Limited will evaluate your current Health & Safety completely free of charge and provide a report on their findings. SafeAid UK will help you improve should shortfalls be observed (fee’s may apply).
