Confederation of Roofing Contractors- New Introduction Sheet

We have recently created a new introduction sheet for all members to give to their customers.

The introduction sheet includes our logo, details of our vetting procedure, your membership number, address and date of joining.

This sheet has only gone to our members and is not available to download for data protection reasons.

We are hoping this will help you secure more quotes whilst ensuring your customer of the ways you have been checked and that they are dealing with a reputable company.

We have had a very positive response to it so far.

Top Tips for the Snow and Ice

  1. Check the weather before you start work. Check the local and national forecast so you are fully aware of inbound weather.
  2. Communicate with the office, let them know all that is going on at your current location.
  3. Make sure you and your team are all wearing appropriate clothing, there is no excuse for being unprepared. Make sure you have your issued PPE with you and that it is worn.
  4. Keep warm, do not let yourselves get cold or wet.
  5. Take regular breaks, drink hot fluids and eat warm food (if possible) to help warm up.
  6. Remember, if the job can wait for a better day to complete safely then that is the safest choice for all team members and the company.

Do not put yourselves or your employees at risk!
