We’re very proud of the fact that Bracknell Roofing has been trading for more than 40 years and that in that time we have grown to become one of the UK’s largest roof, slate and tiling contractors. We have eight branches across England (with plans to open more) and we work with the majority of the big UK housebuilders – which means we always have roofing teams onsite up and down the country working on new-build developments and refurbishment projects.

This article was written by Simon Smith for September 17 issue of Roofing Today. The term “the squeezed middle” has become political shorthand to describe great swathes of people in the UK who have been hit hard by rising prices and relative declines in real wages. Simon Smith says the term is equally apt for roofing contractors. It’s no exaggeration to say that the UK roofing industry is still feeling the effects of the last recession, which started nearly ten […]

We continue with our policy of developing talented young people as it gives an Apprentice the opportunity to become a Quantity Surveyor. Angus Blair-Park joined the team at the company’s Burton-upon-Trent head office as an Apprentice as an 18-year-old straight from sixth form, where he had a grounding in different aspects of the business, which is one of the UK’s largest roof, slate and tiling contractors. During his first two years, the 20-year-old – who is a keen amateur footballer […]

Projects for 124 new roofs in West Yorkshire or 58 roofs in Tipton aren’t in themselves reasons for our local and trade media to “hold the front page” – but if you start to add them all up, then it becomes a different proposition altogether. We did some sums recently and worked out that, on average, we install roofs on more than 6,000 homes each year. That’s the equivalent of a small town the size of Louth in Lincolnshire. We […]

It is always satisfying to receive recognition from our customers and other organisations and we are very proud to have received an Excellence in Health and Safety award from the NHBC. This award was given to the Midlands Branch team for the best site category whilst working with Wheeldon Brothers Ltd on their Moorcroft development in Matlock Derbyshire. Congratulations to all of our branch staff and site workers involved on this project.

Bracknell Roofing has appointed Danny Thorne to develop a specialist flat roofing division of the business in the Midlands. The company is best known for its expertise in pitched roofing projects, particularly in the domestic market for new-build houses and renovations – but Danny will work solely on raising awareness of its flat roofing capabilities on new build and refurbishment projects, in both the commercial and private housing sectors. In one of his previous roles, he started from scratch by […]

Bracknell Roofing has appointed Howard York as its Branch Manager to bolster the team at the recently opened office in Hunslet, Leeds. He will be responsible for raising the profile of Bracknell Roofing across Yorkshire to ensure that it becomes one of the companies that are invited to tender for projects for both new house-building developments and refurbishment schemes for existing housing stock. Howard brings more than 30 years’ experience in the roofing and builders’ merchant industries to the role […]

We are pleased to announce the relocation of our Bradford office to new, larger premises in Leeds as part of plans to secure more projects across Yorkshire – particularly for new housing developments. The new office – run by an experienced management team and coordinating a network of roofers – will enable the company to tender for pitch and flat work roofing contracts on new housing developments and the refurbishment of individual projects, as well as both private and social […]

Our ongoing commitment to provide support for the local community was showcased on Saturday 11 March as a “Minis Rugby” tournament was held at Derby RFC, wherein Bracknell sponsored the 2 competing teams of 6-10-year-olds – Derby and Marple RUFC. This fun family day involved the local Derby juniors competing in a tournament along with a team travelling from Cheshire. Bracknell have regional branches based both in the Cheshire and Derby area and we are proud to support local community […]

Bracknell Roofing has secured a contract – which is valued at around £1.9m – to re-roof some of New Forest District Council’s housing stock. The contract will run in two phases over the next 18 months and will see around 285 of the council’s ageing house stock – including detached and semi-detached houses, as well as bungalows – in Hythe and Lymington have completely new roofs. Bracknell Roofing’s Managing Director Simon Smith is delighted to secure the contract for the […]
