Up on the roof

Investing in a zinc roof provides a practical and aesthetic solution to last a lifetime.

Truro based company Cornwall Zinc Roofing Ltd is renowned for its expertise, safety, reliability and experience to get the job done with minimum fuss and maximum effect.

We spoke to Director, Ross Bland: “The traditional metal roofing market has grown in recent years and zinc is by far the most popular metal used in ‘Standing Seam’ roofing and cladding, being used since the early 1800s. As well as providing a contemporary finish, which looks great with both new builds and older properties, correctly installed zinc can also last in excess of 100 years, as opposed to the 25 to 50 years associated with alternative systems.”

Few materials are as versatile as zinc, which is available in a range of natural and pre-weathered finishes, virtually maintenance free and capable of dealing with complex designs. It’s also environmentally friendly, being fully recyclable. However, the company also recognises that customers’ preferences and budgets are individual, and therefore also specialise in other materials such as copper, steel and aluminium. 

The team are trained, professional and courteous and you’re guaranteed quality workmanship in whichever type of product is specified. Working with both private clients and businesses throughout Cornwall, Ross and the team have built a sterling reputation.

To meet the growing demand Cornwall Zinc Roofing has relocated to larger premises in Truro, which not only provide a greater capacity for offsite fabrication but also a place where customers can get to see the products and various options available.

The company is a member of the Federation of Traditional Metal Roofing Contractors (FTMRC), and proudly graded ‘Excellent’. This organisation seeks to improve the workmanship standards of installation and widen the technical design knowledge necessary to protect the integrity of the installation of metal roofs. To be accepted as a member of the FTMRC shows that Cornwall Zinc Roofing has met the high standards that they seek across all the different metals used in roofing and that all the installers are trained to their high standard which ultimately means that you, the customer, get the best results possible.

To find out more about the benefits of zinc roofing and for a carefully prepared quote, be sure to give Ross and the team a call.
