Federation of Traditional Metal Roofing Contractors
Cornwall Zinc Roofing Ltd is proud to announce that they are now members of the Federation of Traditional Metal Roofing Contractors (FTMRC). One of the principal objectives of the Federation of Traditional Metal Roofing Contractors is to improve the workmanship standards of installation and widen the technical design knowledge necessary to protect the integrity of the installation.
The revival in the use of copper, zinc, stainless steel and galvanised mild steel in the fully supported metal roofing sector over the last 20 years has highlighted a shortage of skilled installers and the gap in formalising up to date codes of practice suited to modern construction requirements with in the United Kingdom.
At present, existing Codes of Practice and technical specifications relate to the 1950’s or 1970’s when the use of these metals previously enjoyed popularity among specifiers and the architectural practices of the period.
