Axter's contractor schemes

The roof is one of the most important parts of any building, protecting the structure and contents from the elements. The roofing contractor is the key to any successful installation be it a new roof, the replacement of an existing roof or a simple repair. Workmanship quality is always important but there is no room for failure when installing waterproofing beneath site applied protection such as green roofs, paving slabs, asphalt, etc.

When choosing a contractor it is important to have verified the craft skills and technical competence of the employees, ensured that all relevant insurances are in place, that the company is financially stable, that they comply with all Health and Safety Legislation and install materials in compliance with British and European Standards and Codes of Practice as well as to manufacturer's instructions.

Long term guarantees and warranties available

Axter's reinforced bitumen membranes, stocked by selected specialist roofing merchants, are available to all trade customers. These contractors can offer warranties on their work backed by Axter's material Warranty.
