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 went a step further and estimated that since Bracknell Roofing was founded in 1973, we have installed roofs on houses for a city the size of Sheffield.
When you look at it like that, it highlights the scale of what we do and, as you’ll see from our news feed, who we deliver projects for: Persimmon Homes, the Kier Group, Linden Homes, Lovell and Barratt Homes, to name but a few.
These are some of this country’s biggest housebuilders, and they choose to keep working with us for a reason – because we are one of the UK’s largest roofing contractors and specialists in pitched and flat roofing.
We have 80 staff across our network in both our head office and eight regional offices. And we have a base of more than 300 contractors who work with us to deliver the projects to the standard that housebuilders expect of us.
We’d like to think we are in the unique position of being ‘big enough to trust, small enough to care’. And we do care because, in our opinion, we have some of the most experienced and committed people within the industry, who excel at delivering projects in Tipton, West Yorkshire and the rest of the country.
But what’s amazed us the most is that our calculations suggest that nearly 600,000 people in the UK live in houses with Bracknell Roofing roofs.
