The Stoke-on-Trent based firm DPM Industrial Roofing (UK) joined on Monday September 14, helping the trade association reach the milestone figure.
The NFRC says it has seen a steady increase in membership over the past several years, claiming many join to enhance their reputation to clients and homeowners. The Association says its primary aim is to promote quality contractors and quality products, both of which are thought of as key priorities for clients and homeowners when seeking contractors for their projects.
The association, which represents over 70% of the roofing industry by value, provides members access to a broad range of training services, as well as current technical and health and safety advice. It also partners with other trade bodies in the industry to set the standards for best practice and workmanship, benefiting members and raising the profile of the entire industry in a market that it says is still seen to be rife with ‘cowboys’.
