Roofers raise the standard

Have your say

A SHEFFIELD roofing firm has been awarded a new industry standard.

Martin-Brooks was awarded competent roofer status which means it can self-certify work formerly requiring building regulation approval.

It means homeowners who have had work done on their roofs by the firm can be given a certificate without having to undergo a £95 council inspection.

Director Nick Brooks said: “We are pleased to be pioneering this. Not all homeowners are aware building regulation approval is compulsory on large jobs.”
